    This is an exercise in worth. Lets say you were going to take the guy above you out on a date... You pick the place to grab dinner... where will you take him?

    Is he a Burger King date... or will you spluge on some Red Lobstah?

    Fancy Itallian Bistro or McDonalds with the coupon book?

    Cheep date or expensive date? All depends on how bad you want to get into his pants..and want him to get into yours. icon_lol.gif

    Have fun.

    I would go for a popular gastro-pub - something sleek and modern with an interesting menu...

    For our first date, my ex took me to Don Pablo's (The Mexican Cantina). It became our regular place. It overlooks the river. My gay bestie told me that it was a lame place for us to have a first date, but I loved it. We enjoyed many taco's there.

    My favorite first date (I guess it was technically our second date) restaurant was a dark, intimate fondue place. All the courses were fondue, so you had an appetizer course were everything was cheese fondue, the main course were you had the burning oil at your table and you cooked the individual pieces of steak/lobster/scallops/shrimp yourself and had an array of sauces to dip them in after, and the dessert fondue where it was all chocolate. We sat close together and fed each other through all the courses. <3

    Wow, fondue is like prom night material! He must've really liked you, LOL

    This topic couldn't be more timely asTODAY...I had a FIRST DATE with a guy I met about 10 days ago!

    Our schedules are completely the opposite: He works for one of the airlines, so his off days are Tuesday/Wednesday, where I have the traditional Saturday/Sunday days off. I work until 7 PM each night, except for Friday, where he works 12:30-9 PM.

    Given that, we met for breakfast this morning at an upscale diner food type place. The food was good, but the company was even better. Afterwards, he went on to work and I floated home on a cloud of euphoria.....**sigh**

    I know I sound like I'm lovestruck, but hey.....

    An RJ buddy of mine suggested we do something "interactive," and I really like that idea as it's different than the "dinner and a movie" kind of thing. There is a place locally where you can literally cook your own dinner (he and I both love to cook) and recently, my office did a corporate afternoon out for fun at Dave and Buster's. I only knew of Dave and Buster's and had a fantastic time playing arcade games and enjoying a great lunch. It might sound a little different, but D&B could be a good idea, and something very different and out of the ordinary, for a date....first one or whatever.

    We'd need a time machine since it's gone now, but I'd go with La Fortuna on the Upper West Side.

    Glad your date turned out well.
    But if anyone took me to Dave & Buster's that would be the end. I don't mind the idea of a food/games combo place, but the food there is worse than the Mai Kai.

    I have to wonder if you actually have functioning tastebuds.


    I knew I never should have mentioned the Mai Kai......Jeezus, that one is still coming back to haunt me. I actually had a decent meal at D&B's. I didn't expect much from the place, but it exceeded my expectations. I have had better out there, but this was not bad at all.

    Orlando is seriously lacking in "fine dining" establishments. The idea is since the area caters to so many tourists, they can trot out a plate of shit and figure if anyone complains...the restaurant never sees them again anyway. There are a few in town that are really pretty good, but away from the tourist corridor (I-Drive). A couple of those would be good for future dates for us.

    Yeah, I have fuctioning tastebuds....I like my OWN cooking better!! And I am truly a damn good cook too.

    None. Dinner is awkward for a first date... a better first date is going for a walk and grabbing a tea.

    Breakfast is a nice idea too. Worked for me.
