Where Should You Take Her? Here are my date suggestions for every occasion.

In my newsletters, I include a section called “Table for Two” to give you ideas on where you can take your LEVEL dates.  For quick reference, I’m housing them here so you can check back in whenever you need a suggestion.

CLASSIC AND IMPRESSIVE

You can’t go wrong with a restaurant she knows and the city loves.  The trick is to choose one that isn’t too loud and has good food.

NEW RESTAURANTS

New restaurants are a great date because they offer so many things to talk about!  The atmosphere, decor, menu options,  table set up, and the food. Of course, it’s challenging to choose a new venue because you can’t be sure it will be as extraordinary as the reviews promise.  Below are the most raved about chef-driven restaurants right now.  Bon Appetit!

COZY FIREPLACES

There’s something magical about a fire.  It’s not only charming but also disarming.  Place the flames amidst an upscale hotel social setting and your conversation should warm up quickly.

MARINA VIEWS

While the beach is packed with people, marinas are a quiet and beautiful outdoor space for a date.

BEAUTIFUL BARS

If you’re not meeting a buddy, ditch the dive bar.  Impress your date or colleague with one of these beautiful bars.

TABLE FOR TWO…WITH A VIEW

Take advantage of the warm summer nights and keep it casual with a beach picnic.  Have your favorite deli prepare tapas and cheese for two, chill a bottle of wine (don’t forget the corkscrew), grab a blanket, and you’re all set.  No reservations needed and you’ll have the best view in the house.

SUN DAY LUNCHES

Enjoy the beautiful, warm daylight with your date as these restaurants with beautiful patios.

THE EXPERTS RECOMMENDATIONS

For suggestions, Eater is my first resource.  They have “heat maps” for major cities to tell you what’s popular per season.  Check out their list for Los Angeles and San Francisco. The SF edition is brilliant! This extensive list offers first date, second date, long-term relationship options and organizes them by neighborhood and price ranges.

FITNESS DATE

RAISE YOUR HEART RATE IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE
Dinner dates can be stale and awkward so why not switch it up? It’s easier to see what a woman is really like when you do something active or outdoors together, plus it lends itself to a more natural conversation. To plan, here’s what you need to consider:

Play To Her strengths: She likes to be active, but make sure she’s comfortable with the activity. You don’t want her to feel weak when you are just getting to know each other.
Deciding On The Workout:  Opt for private studio classes instead of working out i nthe gym: SoulCycle, yoga, Barry’s Bootcamp, etc.
Let Weather Be Your Guide: Hikes are a great way to be active and get to know each other. Remember, it’s not her endurance you’re looking at. Use this opportunity to laugh, relax and take the pressure out of dating.
Transition Your Date: If you enjoy your workout date, have a place in mind to grab a bite afterwards where she’ll feel comfortable in her workout gear. Better yet, if you know the date is going to be successful, ask her to bring a change of clothes just in case. Women want to look good for you!
