Do you create unique foods? Get great advice

Tucson, it's been a while since I've gone out for a nice, celebratory dinner. Any rec's for places you've been to recently?

Greetings, Chowhounders.

My boyfriend and I are celebrating our 2 year anniversary next week, and I haven't had a clue of where to go. Last year, we had a spectacular meal at Maynard's, but I think we should go try somewhere else. We tend to eat at home a lot and when we do go out, it's usually for Vietnamese, Korean or other relatively inexpensive, homely fare. We're not picky at all, have quite a large budget, and are just looking for something nice and different.

Have you had a great, mid to high end romantic meal here recently? I'd love to know where and what you had.

Thank you!

    There probably is no restaurant with a more setting than Hacienda del Sol.

      We went to Le Rendez-Vous last Saturday, and I think the front room is really romantic: red canvas ceiling, French flourishes, etc. The food was classic French: traditional, rich - delicious, but I can't eat that much butter and cream any more. They comped my dessert because it was my birthday, but the cakes were not very exciting. I loved the mussels, though.

        We love Contigo (Latin American--great pisco sours and tapas), the Abbey and the Arizona Inn (either the bar or the main dining room).

          For high end we like Primo, Sullivan's, and are going to Le Rendez-Vous for the first time this weekend. We did not like AZ Inn, nor Anthony's.
          For mid-range have you tried Reilly's Craft, Hub, Cafe Poca Cosa, Feast, or Downtown Kitchen? I love Maynard's, too.
          Happy Anniversary!
