There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking a date night to In ‘n Out. If that’s what you like, or what you have time for, go for it! But we’re making a case for some foodie date night experiences. These recommendations go beyond just a meal. In some cases, it’s a class, in others, it’s a sleigh ride to your dinner destination! We promise, you won’t be disappointed.
Studio 5 Foods Producer Chelsea Fairbourn shares her top five picks for an over-the-top date night experience. The price on these events ranges from $20-$200 per person, a little more than your average burger joint. But, the memories will make it all worth it.
