This year was our first having to plan an anniversary dinner around a baby. Meaning we needed something quick enough to get care and needed very little energy in executing. Enter our favorite date night, at my husband’s suggestion: restaurant hopping!
Pick a course for as many restaurants as you want, it can be as quick or as long as you like and as costly or cheap as you like. Something I love about restaurant hopping is that it can allow you to try all sorts of new places with little commitment and it’s a great way to get in to some much nicer places that you could normally not afford. Start early and you can get a few in for happy hour prices. Remember to go light, otherwise, you’ll fill up too quickly for your dinner (or more importantly, dessert!)
Here are some of my recommendations for your next course by course date night!
Margaritas at Criollo
Cocktails at The McMillian
Martinis at Rendezvous
Beer at Historic Brewing Company
Cheese plate at Brix
Garlic Miso Clams at Monsoons
Nachos Brava at Salsa Brava
Sushi roll (my favorite is the Kaptain Krunch roll) at Karma Sushi
Bibimbap at Na D Li
Pizza at New Jersey Pizza Co
Gelato at Kickstand Kafe
Dark chocolate and sea salt covered carmel at The Sweet Shoppe and Nut House
All the pastries at The Tourist Home Urban Market
