First impressions are lasting, and when it comes to impressing your food-loving date, there's no better place to go than The House Brasserie. The restaurant's covered outdoor patio features strings of twinkling lights, while the interior boasts luxe patterned wallpaper and a collection of elegant but weathered mirrors. With all the charm from the surroundings it's impossible not to fall in love — with the food, at least. Chef Matt Carter's menu includes memorable plates with international inspiration such as the seared diver scallops with popcorn purée, bacon XO sauce, and cantaloupe. All the entrées are delicious, but suave daters will order a selection of Carter's small plates and appetizers. There's nothing more romantic than splitting a plate of Berkshire pork belly with kimchee and udon noodles or a dish of Arizona-made ricotta cheese with Sicilian pistachio toast.
