Your table is ready online
Thanks, Foodie Report readers Tom and Brian for your help with this story. Westender just posed a great question: What do you think about dining out on Valentine's Day? As he rightly says, it's a night that draws a good number of rookie diners -- people who tend not to eat in restaurants very often. Is service affected? Is quality? Sure, it's the second-busiest night for restaurants. Managers are quick to point out that that doesn't mean the restaurant is at capacity. Most reservations are for two people, so those big tables are unused and four-tops become two-tops.
Will you treat your sweetie to a special dinner or night on the town? Or do you have horror stories from V-Days past?
An interesting aside: In Korea, there are two "Valentine's Days." On Feb. 14, women dote on their sweeties; a month later, on White Day, men reciprocate. And singles and those who eschew the holidays celebrate Black Day on May 15.
