Date nights are few and far between for some of us, but other couples enjoy date nights regularly, not just on a first date. I admire those couples who schedule a date every Saturday night, or the second Friday of each month.

You might think seafood restaurants were high on the list, but while we love our seafood, especially our delicious New England lobster rolls, most of the places on the list are good old "one size fits all" kind of restaurants.  Fancy, specialty dining venues are not necessarily the best kind of places to have a relaxing date night.

The number one restaurant mentioned in the crowdsourced post was a restaurant I had heard about for years, but never noshed in.  Given the number of positive posts about this eatery, it's on my list, and should probably be on yours as well.
