Being a home cook can make you a real homebody. Perhaps better described as a grouch. Who wants to eat out at a great restaurant with someone frowning over the food, thinking, “I could make that better at home”?
For fear of just this situation, Alex and I have often skipped dinners out in favor of eating at home, both simple food and not-so-simple food. But where’s the romance in staying home? Unclear. So when HowAboutWe for Couples contacted me to see if I’d like to try out their date-planning service, I knew we were headed out to eat (despite being oddly attracted to some of the non-food dates, like learning archery together in Queens….). The site is all about helping you plan dates, so whether you’re busy or simply looking for fun, new experiences that don’t cost as much as a weekend out of town, you can go off on cool dates with your significant other without a lot of research or preparation.
As we came down from travel and the general headiness of summer, Alex and I chose our first date and journeyed off into the TriBeCa night. Our destination? SuiteThreeOhSix, an all-vegetarian supper club at a studio space on Franklin Street. We had never been to a supper club, and I loved the idea of having a restaurant-like experience, only not at a restaurant. Maybe I’d be less grouchy.
We ate six courses of some of the most creative vegetarian food I’ve ever had, and we got a chance to chat with some of the other couples at the studio’s one long table, making this a more social date than most. Here are a few pictures from the night. (All photos thanks to Liz Clayman.)
We had a great time trying new foods, watching the chef work her magic, and getting to know some fellow New Yorkers out on the town. Can’t wait for our next HowAboutWe foodie outing!

I went on this date and wrote this sponsored post in partnership with HowAboutWe. Thanks for supporting the sponsors that help inspire BGSK’s content!
