Love is in the air, and at many local restaurants it’s also on the menu. Valentine’s Day is this month, so I figured it was high time that we feature some of my favorite romantic date night spots. While I’m often more comfortable eating wings in a dive bar with friends or ordering delivery from my couch in my pajamas, there’s something to be said for getting dolled up and hitting the town with the one I love.
What’s the recipe for a perfect date night outing? In my book, it’s a semi-formal restaurant usually nestled in a residential neighborhood. A good date spot has charm, romantic aesthetics (hello candlelit tables – tough for photographs, but oh so perfect for gazing into your loved one’s eyes), delicious cocktails, and dishes that can be shared during heartfelt conversations.
Singles, please don’t despair. These restaurants are also wonderful outings for a friend date or a place to go and treat yourself. Everybody deserves a romantic date now and then, and who better to spend your time with than someone as wonderful as you?
