I’m with you on the high quality seafood, or steak12
What Girls & Guys Said
Something with seafood (salmon, prawn, crab etc). If the restaurant has a really nice aged rib eye on the bone then i would normally order that aswell with some nice vegetables and au jus on the side23
It depends on what kind of restaurant. My wife and I love ethnic foods - Italian, Thai, Korean, Middle Eastern, Indian, Japanese, you name it. Chinese or Mexican, especially if they aren't run of the mill.
I like southwestern and love BBQ and Cajun.
We love interesting "fusion" cuisine.
I enjoy a really good steak on occasion. But steak dinners have become really expensive. If I eat steak, I'll usually grill it myself. With it, I like garlic mashed potatoes with butter or a baked potato with butter, sour cream and chives, and organic corn on the side.
I'm very partial to seafood, myself. It's my favorite. If I lived on the east coast, I'd eat lobster regularly.
I love crab cakes, scallops, muscles, shrimp, and moist, tender fish both ocean and freshwater.
Japanese, of course, has great seafood. I love Italian seafood like cioppino or something like linguine pasta with steamed mussels, white wine, gorgonzola and light
cream sauce. And I do love a good Caesar salad for starters.
Our 25th anniversary is coming up on the 6th and we plan to go out tomorrow night to celebrate. There are a couple of places not to far from where we live that are in old Victorian homes, have nice atmospheres and really good food. I'll probably have some kind of seafood. They have some really tasty wines, too.
If it is not listed on the dish I would have had them remake it. I did that with brussels sprouts and a Yardhouse. I'm not a fan of a lot of sauces and these were sitting in a pool of this sour white sauce like a doctored mayo of some sort.
For fancy I will usually go with a steak, filet mignon, rare (blue rare if they offer it) or salmon or a tuna steak. A potato dish for the starch, depends on what's offered, I like a good baked potato as long as they don't brine them first. I like the skin and I'd prefer it not taste like a salt lick. Steak or tuna tartar as an appetizer, a salad will usually be something with blue cheese if offered (same with sauces for the steak above), Brussels sprouts if they have them for veg, otherwise greens are good, not fancy but I love me some collared greens (and I'm not even from the south). I avoid asparagus it makes my pee smell.13
I dont go out for fancy meals, the not fancy meals i go out for tend to be steak and chips though last time it was fish and chips.
The waitress asked me 'would i like to try some vinegar?'
Hmm, maybe this more fancy than i thought, I guess they make their own vinegar or something here?
When she came back with store bought vinegar i was forced to conclude that she was either the victim or was making me the victim of some sort of marketing bullshit, buzz word type nonsense or perhaps she was just a crazy person?
I dont know, its hard to say, maybe there really are people out there who have led such sheltered lives than they have never tried vinegar?
Well thats an instant classic for a running inside joke now.
Would you like to 'try' some vinegar?11
Depends on where we are. If we are at home, it almost always has steak or bacon in the dish, we are in other parts of the country that are known for particular styles, that’s what we go for. I had salmon caught in a river that morning at a restaurant in Portland a number of years ago. Absolutely amazing11
Whenever i go out for a nice or "fancy" meal it's always different. I don't usually eat at the same "nice" restaurant more than once..
So depending on the menu i might get chicken, beef rarely, mac n cheese, crab legs, rice, soup... depends.
But never salad. I refuse to eat out at a nice place and just get a salad unless its a small side.11
Like my father I'm typically a pasta guy (but I'm not a spaghetti fan, more fettucine, tortellini and cappelletti ). If you take me to a stakehouse, there's an 85% chance I'm gonna order a pasta.
I also tend to order clubhouses a lot.
My true secret all-time favourite food is stir fry.13
Im really picky so i dont actually eat anything fancy. I do like this one restaurants grilled pork chops tho. It comes with a side of mashed potatoes and limas which are oh so yummy. And its like $40 just for that 🤣 I’m more of a fast food person. I dont eat salmon and I’m not as crazy about steak as i thought. What other fancy foods are there? I prefer soul food14
Well, "LoverDover" when you order, order for me too. When I go out to Pelican Hill or somewhere here nice, I would order something similar, or the same. I never order red meat etc or high cholesterol shell fish.
'If you will send me that link again, I will send you a link for Pelican Hill Resort and you can browse through it and see where I/we go. You and hubby will enjoy seeing it. Do you play golf, or does your hubby? The Pelican Hill course is a National caliber course.11
Steak house -KC or NY strip, medium well, baked po with the trimmings, onion ring of baked skins app, decent dinner roll
Mexican - Quick- Ham and cheese torta, Lemon Jarritos. Dinner- Taco, quesadilla, burrito plate, empanada for dessert. or. - Veggie fajitas, sour cream and guac, chips. I can make most of them.
Chinese- Beef pea pod, sweet-sour chicken. (I can make both). Pork sub gum (I can't make that one yet).
Italian- Almost anything that isn't fish. ( I can do most of the pasta dishes and some of the soups. ) Cannoli or a girl for dessert.10
As a former chef i really don't like eating out. The quality of the food or knowing what goes on in the kitchen turns me away.
There are few good pizza places here and barbeque venues i like to visit in the middle of the night, after workout for a snaccident.😗21
Rib-eye medium rare. A baked potato w/ grated cheddar and 5tbl spoons of melted butter on the side. Steamed broccoli, baby carrots, and cauliflower.
(the butter is so I can make my own mashed potato, and even some supposed fine dining restaurants will serve dehydrated mashed potato).10
If we are doing Italian, I might order chicken parmigiana or osso bucco or chicken piccata. At a steak house, I would usually get a T-bone but pork tenderloin is a good choice for me. I try to stick with low carb options.13
My day was fine. The weather was crap but apart from that it was okay. I didn’t do much today except feed my cats 🥰34
Most fancy restaurants don't have anything I want or they do but don't make it so that it's something I'd want to eat. I used to work at one and the only thing I ever ate there was the buns with butter and a couple pieces of chicken. They're also way too expensive!! Vincent's Pizza will do me just fine!!10
Maybe a mixed grill if I like all its parts
If I go Italian I will get antipasto then pasta then a meat course and maybe a dessert if I like the sound of it all washed down with various Italian liqueurs12
I am a picky eater and often don't like the ingredients on fancy food.
I'd rather eat KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco bell (no lettuce or tomatoes) or breakfast food when going out.13
Last time we went out for my birthday and I got a breaded fish stuffed with lobster. It was really nice. I like sea food and a fresh salad or Cesar.21
I’m a steak guy when I go out for a nice dinner.. a nice filet cooked medium, a baked potato, and a tomato and mozzarella salad to start makes me very happy.11
I'm the worst, I'll usually get the cheapest thing to offset what my wife orders. Except when i take her to a sushi restaurant. Then i get five rolls to share, and we decide based on name of the dish.14

I usually order one of the specials of the night, you're guaranteed fresh ingredients and care put into the dish.
That is a really good point! I hope they have a good seafood special tonight. 😊
There you are! I got the salmon special. It was very good!
Glad you enjoyed it! ☺️
