Anniversary Dinner

My 2nd wedding anniversary is coming up and Im all out of Ideas. We celebrate our 1st wedding annivesary at Melisse. Had the Chef's Tasting and loved it. We've been to providence several times, spago, Valentino, Hatfield's, Bastide, Ortolan, Charlie Palmer, Comme Ca, Lucques, etc I want to surprise her with something different, it's hard to go out of town as our anniversary falls on a weekday.

Any suggestions?

        I've thought about Urasawa, still contemplating.

        Bazaar looks good, how's the food? There's alot of stuff in their menu i'd love to get hahaha

          Just duplicate the Exilekiss menu, as you'll see in his review below and you'll be fine (lol)

            1. re: lotta_cox

              So Bazaar's "theme" is going from one room to the other? I am right or wrong?

            2. re: JMan604

              Bazaar is great. Try to sit in the Rojo Room. The best way to order is to tell your server the type of things you like and dont like and the amount of food you want and let the server pick. Otherwise the menu is too extensive to make informed picks especially if its your first time. This is one of the very best spots in the City.

          1. Have you been to Josie yet? if not, that would be one of my top choices.

              I second Josie, I was going to rec Saddle Peak Lodge, but not for a weeknight. Josie is a close second. I think Tavern in the evening could be really romantic too.

              1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                Agree with Josie. Everything there is great and it's reliable.
                A few months ago, I would have recommended Craft...but with their recent major shake-up, I don't know. Has anyone been to Craft recently?

                1. Bazaar is really good. Outdoors at Chateau Marmont is incredible. The patio at Polo Lounge is also very nice.
