22 Ideas for Great Dinner Dates Around Boston

Whether it’s your first date or your 100th, your first anniversary or your 50th, you’re probably thinking about how to incorporate food into the event. From very fancy tasting menu restaurants to casual neighborhood joints, this guide covers a range of food-related dating ideas in and around Boston (with some bonus day trips outside of the city if you’re looking for a longer date).

How to navigate the guide: A few select stories are highlighted in the photo blocks at the top of the page, and the entire collection appears in the table of contents below the blocks, broken up into several categories. Looking for Boston’s best restaurants for late-night dining, for example? You’ll find that in the “dating scenarios” section, while the city’s best steakhouses and seafood towers are under “specific foods.”

Bookmark this page — the guide will grow over time — and reach out to the Eater Boston team via email if there are other dating-related topics you’d like to see covered in future updates. You can also join the Eater Boston Restaurant Recommendations group on Facebook to trade tips and recommendations with Eater Boston staff and readers.
