Ah... date night. It’s about taking a moment to show that special someone just how much they mean to you and -- stuffing your faces with a delicious feast. The dinner date may not be the most original way to spend an evening together, but seventy percent of the time it works every time.

In NYC, it can be a daunting task, but not to worry! These unique and romantic date ideas will not only bring you and your partner closer together, they’ll also fill that bottomless hole you call a stomach.
