Gentlemen, pay close attention. Men’s Fitness Magazine just spilled a few little secrets. Namely, “Sure, you might be perfectly fine to eat standing up and could care less about lighting, but if you’re looking to attract a woman, take her to a restaurant that sets the mood for romance.”
Today the magazine named America’s 20 Best Date Restaurants, featuring Circa 1886 Restaurant as a top pick. The list of 20 restaurants comes with a caveat: each promises dishes so “mind-bendingly flavorful”, ladies are likely to leave any 50 Shades of Grey daydreams at the doorstep. If you recognize the title of that book from nearly every woman’s beach bag this summer, then you understand. These restaurants are pretty amazing.
The Men’s Fitness-approved list calls Circa 1886′s romantic neighborhood nook a “charmingly decadent Southern eatery.” Step just one foot in Circa 1886 and the mood is set.
Charleston charm, cozy booths, a beautifully restored space. Then cue spot-on service, glowing candle light, a bottle of award-winning wine and an always-inventive menu. Whether it’s a blind date, a third date or an anniversary, it’s suddenly the perfect date.
Men’s Fitness remarks, “Truffle oil, garden vegetables and ice cream: They’re three tastes you wouldn’t imagine would appear in the same course—yet alone in the very same dish—yet the three manage to mingle seductively on your plate and leave you wishing for more at this decidedly inventive Lowcountry restaurant.”
Lucky for you, Circa 1886 rests on the grounds of the Wentworth Mansion, recently named one of the world’s best hotels (and in our opinion, also the most romantic). So with this, Men’s Fitness leaves one last tip, “make an unforgettable impression on your date, pair your dinner reservation with a stay at one of the property’s impossibly romantic rooms.”
Discover your new favorite date destination. Make a reservation for a dinner at Circa 1886. Interested in calling it a night, or maybe even a weekend? Check out the Wentworth Mansion’s Romance Package, which includes dinner, champagne chocolate-covered strawberries and many more amazing surprises.
