Things To Consider When Choosing A Date Night Location

Maybe this is biased advice, as it’s coming from a food writer, but choosing the right restaurant for your date is a make-or-break decision. What are some things to consider in making the right choice?

I. Choose a restaurant that will enable you to have warm, uninhibited conversation.

II. Pick a restaurant with a diverse menu, ensuring that there is an option for both party members.

III. Dine at an institution that will set the mood for the evening: casual, swanky, fun, intimate? It’s contingent on the goal of the date.
