Anniversary dinner in Knoxville

My husband and I will happen to find ourselves in Knoxville on our anniversary in two weeks. I've browsed the Knoxville posts but would love to hear your recommendations on a special occasion restaurant in the area. It doesn't have to be "romantic" in a cheesy restaurant way, and we both eat all types of food. It should just be special and serve delicious food. Your suggestions are much appreciated!

      1. Thank you for the suggestions. We ended up dining at By The Tracks Bistro and it was quite lovely. My husband had a steak, which was, well, a steak. But I had the scallops, which were served on creamed corn and accompanied by three brilliant sides: spicy carrots sauteed with country ham, sauteed spinach, and pickled red onions. It was marvelous, and we had housemade chocolate mint ice cream for dessert which was fantastic. It was a nice experience, waitstaff professional and attentive and not pretentious at all. I recommend!
