Curious, whats the most expensive and uppity place you can think of to eat? Suit & tie, champagne, the whole nine yards. Lets keep this one within the city limits, kind of a "spend the night on the town " type thing.

I love 2Vines ... just ate there last night. Food is great (and pricey), but I definitely would not call the atmosphere "uppity." You can dress casually when you go there. Although Yyou won't see too many folks in jeans, you could feel comfortable in nice jeans with a nice shirt.

I think that one of the best up-scale restaurants in the city is Max's at Eastman Place. Great food and a really nice up-scale atmophere. You can't go wrong there. I ate there several months ago and it was a really nice experience - I highly recommend it. I've heard Tourneados is nice, but haven't been there. Virtu is another possibility, but I haven't been there. It has gotten some bad reviews though with regard to service and tending to have some snotty wait staff that are way too full of themselves - Has anyone been there recently?

If you want to venture out of the city a bit, I would recommend Woodcliff - great views as well.

Wanted to add regarding Richardson's Canal House - good food and very expensive, but I find the atmosphere there a bit "tired" and dated. For that kind of money, go Max's Eastman Place, which is a very modern, up-scale atmosphere - definitely a "night on the town" type place. Plus then you are in the city and have some other options close by for afterwards.
