Anniversary in St. Pete; where to go for dinner?

My husband and I are sneaking over to St. Pete for a long weekend anniversary get away. What's a good place to go for our anniversary on Saturday? We'll be in tourist mode and I'm not packing much so we're not looking for a jacket-required-place but something a step up from a margaritas-and-fried-fish. Guavaween is going on so I'd like to avoid going over to Tampa since we don't want to get bogged down in all that.

Some place kind of dark with a romantic feel would be great. Live music (e.g. piano and torch singer, that kind of thing) would be great too but I know that is a lot to ask. We'll eat nearly any type of food. Any suggestions are appreciated.

  1. Cafe Alma in downtown St. Pete is charming and the food is delicious. If you're down by St. Pete Beach, Fetishes is an intimate romantic restaurant with the best crab cakes in the universe. It may look swanky, but the proximity to the beach means that you're fine without a jacket. Happy anniversary!
