Looking for ideas for a fabulous and memorable 10 year anniversary in Philly area..

My ten year wedding anniversary is coming up and I am trying to plan a very special day for my husband and I. Our lives involve food so much that I want to ensure we include a fabulous meal in the mix.

We have a toddler and no overnight babysitting options so I am thinking of a nice day event or an early dinner when we are home not too long after her bedtime. We are willing to travel anywhere (though if its really far I plan to get a car/driver so we can drink lots and lots of wine wherever we go). Center city, any surrounding areas, as long as its not so far we'll spend our whole day in the car. Cost is not an issue. I just want it to be really special and memorable.

My initial thinking was to see if any local wineries offered private dinners, or any restaurants in Philly offered private rooms for dinner of a nice chef's table. Besides that I am pretty stumped. I asked my husband for lots of sparkly diamonds so I need to really have a good plan to stand up to that!!!!

  1. Our 10th is coming up in October and we're trying to figure out the same thing. We've done just about all of the high end places in Philly, but we might do LaCroix since we have only been there for dinner during Restaurant Week and for Sunday Brunch.

    Let me know what you come up with.

    1. If you are a food person and want a memorable meal go to Bibou. It's definitely not a fancy place just great food and a loving atmosphere. Since it's byob you can splurge on some wonderful wine.
