Affordable special occasion dinner

My10th anniversary is in May and I want to celebrate with a great, special meal. As much as I would love to go to EMP it's not in my budget....Would like to spend $200-50 tops including drinks......any neighborhood welcome,....thanks.

    $125pp including how many drinks? Just one or more than that? Drinking habits vary widely and cocktails are now like $13-15 in lots of places... Or did you mean wine, which can also blow your budget?

    Also does this $125pp ALSO include tax and tip?

    $125pp minus tax and tip is about $96pp, minus two cocktails is only $70pp. Not exactly a lot to spend on something "great, special."

    Can you give a per person cost for just food?
