Anniversary Dinner in Ann Arbor

My wife and I are looking to celebrate our anniversary in Ann Arbor in July (we'll coincidentally be in town for our son's U of M orientation). Aside from Zingerman's Roadhouse, which we know about, what other recommendations can fellow hounds make for an interesting anniversary meal?

Zingerman's Roadhouse
2501 Jackson Road, Ann Arbor, MI 48103

  1. If you enjoy wine I would look to the Earle downtown, or Paesano's (Italian) near US23.
    Even if you are not into wine, I would highly recommend Paesano's.

    1. I would go to Eve. It's the best restaurant in town next to Zingerman's. The Pacific Rim is also very good if you are into Asian cuisine.

        Eve has been closed for years now. She now has a restaurant called Frita Batidos. Is good, but not for an anniversary dinner. I'd recommend Vellum or The Ravens club. Paesanos it not anywhere near downtown and not really a destination restaurant with food that is just okay imho.

          Yes I know...this post is about 3 years old and therefore these recommendations suggest that.

      2. I suggest you check out the West End Grill. Their menu is on their website. It's our favorite "high end" spot in Ann Arbor.

        1. Not mentioned often but Zingerman's Roadhouse breakfast is good too. They have just about the best Eggs Benedict I have ever had.
