My wife and I are spending a few days in New Buffalo, Michigan over our anniversary. We're willing to travel 10 or 15 miles for a real nice anniverary dinner. Any suggestions?

I've never eaten in New Buffalo, but the best place there is supposed to be Bentwood Tavern, in the Marina Grand Resort.


If you're willing to drive 20-30 miles, there are other choices.

Boulevard Inn & Bistro, in St. Joseph

the restaurant at Tabor Hill Winery, in Buchanan

Tosi's, in Stevensville

Gene Weingarten, writing in The Washington Post about online news stories and their readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

There are 2 places where my wife and I have had anniversary dinners that you might like. According to Google maps, the Hesston Super Club, in Hesston, IN is a little over 6 miles away. About 10 miles away along the Red Arrow highway, there's the  Soe Cafe, just outside Sawyer. In the opposite direction down the highway, about 6 miles, is Stop 50 Pizzaria in Michiana Shores, IN. A pleasant place w. very good Neapolitan style pies. Nice decor, but not cozy. Still, really good food.


Another place we have heard is quite fine is Timothy's in Union Pier, also about 6 miles away.


Have fun.
