I’m a gay Chicago bride looking to have a civil ceremony followed by a really nice dinner for a small group. Not super familiar with Iowa. Anyone have any restaurant suggestions? Looking for upscale dining.

Dubuque (where I’m from) is a medium-sized town on the riverfront, about 3.5 hours from Chicago. There are a bunch of little gourmet-esque places that have recently opened up: L.May on Main, Pepper Sprout (also on Main, I think).
Where in Iowa were you thinking?

Django is in downtown Des Moines, minutes from the courthouse. Amazing food & even have a private room for parties…would highly recommend.
