    OT: Need help with Anniversary dinner ideas...

    My wife has challenged me to find a restaurant for our anniversary on Saturday where neither of us has visited before. Looking for help and I don't think fast food would cut it.

    Looking in the Des Moines or surrounding areas...

    Thanks in advance.

    Radish is good in my opinion. Also consider the Rusty Duck in Dexter, great food!


    If you don't think every day is a good day, try missing one.

    Second the Radish, a place off the beaten path. Or another place that is not popular, but decently ok for anniversary is John & Nicks.

    My immediate reaction was what could be better for treating your lady like a queen than White Castle. But alas, there are none in Iowa.

    Unfortunately you have forgotten to include a suggested price range. So, I suggest anything from the Hy-Vee deli to 801 Chophouse.

    My anniversary was yesterday, and I had frozen spaghetti, and I got my wife an 8 pc Jalapeno popper from Arby's. Yes, she is low maintenance. Before you all start casting judgement upon me, I did make a special trip out to Arby's to get it for her

    I would say Flemings if that's an option for you. Anywhere you go though, make a reservation and bring a couple dozen roses to the place earlier in the day and have them sitting on the table when you get there with your wife, it always works for me.
