Taking my wife out for our first wedding Anniversary. I know Christopher's is a big spot. But what are some other restaurants y'all suggest in B/CS area?

The Republic is the only option.

Porter's Steakhouse is a very good option and even Cafe Eccell...their strawberry tart is a winner!

Out of all these listed, I would go with Cafe Eccell. Caffe Capri would also be nice.

My wife and I really enjoy Christophers. For something different, why not drive to Washington County and try Dos Brisas?

I'd add Maddens to that list. I really like their food

I generally choose Christopher's over Republic, but that's mainly because they have a kids menu. We like to go out to a nice early dinner mid week sometimes, but wont go to Republic because they insist my 4 year old pay for a full entree. Their choice- and that's fine. But I can pay roughly $10 for a kids plate at Christophers.

Amico Nave is probably the best Italian restaurant in BCS. Nice atmosphere too.

Caffe Capri is definitely the best Italian restaurant in BCS. We prefer the atmosphere there. Not impressed with Amico Nave.

I did this very thing for our anniversary last week. Made a 7:15pm reservation on a weeknight. It was the best dining-out experience I've ever had in Aggieland -- and I've been to all the upscale places.

We did Veritas last year. Their chef's tasting was exquisite as well, but Christopher's edgedthem out.

To anyone that recommended Eccell or Cafe Carpri... why not just go to McDonalds? Eccell is good, but a far cry from upscale dining. And Cafe Capri? Just... don't (unless you like overcooked pasta with sauce from a can).

Christopher's is extremely overrated.

That why we like Eccell - the dishes are a little more upscale, but you can make the dining experience formal or casual depending on your mood.

Caffe Capri - now you're reaching. I guess you've never had the owner prepare you a special off-menu dish from scratch.

To each their own, I suppose.

As for Caffe Capri -- you're exactly right. I wouldn't let the owner prepare something for me if he paid me to eat it.

Troll, troll, troll your boat. You are proving that you have zero idea what you're talking about. I guess you have some kind of problem with the Cerone family.

No, not at all. Or, rather, the only thing I have against them is that the food just isn't good. I get suckered in to going once a year or so and leave each time feeling disappointed, that I got a poor value, and/or that I could make better at home.

The neat thing about a free market society is that I can choose to spend my money elsewhere while others are perfectly welcome to spend their money on what I consider mediocrity.

Hey, I feel the same way. Glad we agree that your food choices are mediocre.
