What makes your date night special? Is it the food? The wine selection? The atmosphere? The company? Usually, it’s the perfect combination of all of the above. With the right mix of deliciousness and romance, your date is sure to be swept off their feet.

At Next Door Food & Drink, we see many couples snuggle up in booths for a special date night with us, whether it be first dates or 50th anniversaries. We love having the opportunity to make those moments magical for you! We want to make sure that each date has a perfect enchanting evening, so we’ve asked our Executive Chef, Matt Smith and our Pastry Chef, Evey Post for some of their best date night dining suggestions.

Take it from those who know the language of love through food! Let us know if you follow their suggestions or if you have some favorites to add from your own perfect date night experience with us!


next doorFrom Chef Matt:

For a date night I always like the idea of sharing multiple dishes and really engaging with your date. Tapas would be a great way to do so, and without sounding too corny, the dates are amazing on a date. They are stuffed with Spanish almonds and wrapped in bacon. As much as I love them, I am planning on a new version that I think will really surprise people!

I recommend the Peanut Butter Pie for a date night. It’s decadent and comforting at the same time. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had someone tell me “Oh, I took home a Peanut Butter Pie for my Wife/Girlfriend/Boyfriend/Husband, and they loved it!”
