Anniversary Meal in Columbia-ish Area?

hs12345 Jan 3, 2008 06:16 PM

My husband and I are celebrating our first anniversary and would like some place to go for dinner. My husband wants to go somewhere that he doesn't have to dress up (I could probably get him to wear khakis, but not a tie) and I'd like to go some place that has good food and a good atmosphere. We don't want the place to be too "stuffy" and we'd like it to be in the vicinity of Columbia/Ellicott City. We like pretty much any type of food except French. Does anybody have any suggestions? Oh and our anniversary is on Monday, so we need some help quickly! :-)

    It sounds like Iron Bridge Wine Co. to me.

      Ram's Head in Savage Mill, perhaps.

      Rocky Run is informal.

        We like Sushi Sono alot. It's down near Clyde's.

        We went to Iron Bridge last year for our anniversary and were disappointed. The plates there are too big for the tables, they cram people into the space, and the food wasn't as wonderful as the prices made them seem.

        That said, I have alot of friends who love Iron Bridge.

          I was thinking about sushi sono. How does it compare to sushi king and hanamura?

            Sushi Sono and Sushi King are owned by the same people. I prefer Sushi King because it's more intimate and the staff seems warmer. I never bothered with hanamura though.

        I had a great time at Jordan's, a steakhouse, in Ellicott City. I was wearing a skirt and my fiancee khakis and a button down. Not stuffy but intimate w/great service.
