Dining Outside the Home: Deep Lagoon Seafood in Naples, Florida! What is “Real Florida”, you wonder. Ummm, good seafood. Whenever a restaurant is crowded, we default to a seat at the bar. Rule Number #1, the drinks come faster and Rule Number # 2, you can order food from the menu. Here’s another secret, bar space at most restaurants has become de facto dining. Singles love it, couples are intrigued, and bartenders become your new best friend. That was our first experience at Deep Lagoon. No matter how rushed and harried a bartender may appear, grabbing a drink is easy, ordering a snack is fun, but eating a full dinner is elation. The guy on the stool next to you attests that the Chilean Sea Bass is phenomenal. “You should get it.”, he says. Decision made. Grilled asparagus comes with it; like icing on a cake. Be friendly, but not over eager and you’ll create memories that are worth writing about.
Dining Outside the Home: Trevi in Las Vegas, Nevada! There’s something about having dinner on an outdoor patio at the edge of “The Fountain of the Gods” in Caesars Palace. The romantic atmosphere makes everything taste better, which isn’t really a far stretch of the imagination. Classic and Italian dishes are superbly prepared with artistic expression. This is called “attention to detail”. The Roasted Chilean Sea Bass was so buttery and rich it practically melts in your mouth. Take time to enjoy the food, the way Italians do. Soak up the ambience. Order Illy blend espresso at the end of the meal, along with an incredible dessert worthy of sharing. Remember, this is Date Night, and it’s worth it.
