steak, Italian, cocktails—you name it

Now that many places around the Metroplex have opened up their dining rooms (and some are opening to 75% capacity as of last week), you and your significant other may be ready to safely venture out for a date night sans kiddos.

But what if your favorite place is still closed or doing take-out only? What are some other good date night dining options?

Allow us to make a few suggestions!


Hudson House, Highland Park and Addison – Who says date night can’t happen during happy hour? Hudson House has a killer half-off martini menu and cheeseburgers to die for.

Stirr, Addison and Deep Ellum – With a great happy hour, this is a must. Plus, the Deep Ellum location has a wonderful downtown Dallas skyline view.
