Outside of choosing the right partner, choosing the right restaurant may be the most important decision for any date night. One Upstate New York destination has got ya covered after being named the best in the state.

What makes for a great date night? Number one, it is all about great company. A great time, great conversation, and great memories flow from spending time with the right special someone.


But having the right atmosphere is key to helping all of the above happen, am I right? Let's be honest - if you go to a restaurant with terrible food and atmosphere you and your date will be more concerned with getting the check to leave than with making said memories.

That is why choosing the ultimate date night spot is of the utmost importance. Something romantic and cozy with amazing food. Luckily for you, Love Food, a popular foodie website and food blog known for finding great culinary destinations for any cuisine and occasion has determined the best date night restaurant in every state. New New York's is right in our backyard!

The next time you are planning a meal out with the one you love, you may want to make a Catskills eatery your dating destination of choice.
