Alright, ladies and gents. Today’s post is all about impressing that special someone in your life. If you want to take your dining experience up a notch (and surprise your partner by taking them somewhere fancy when it isn’t even Valentine’s Day), check out one of these romantic Kansas restaurants that you’re sure to love:
1. Napoli's Italian Restaurant (Pittsburg)
♫ In Napoli where love is king; When boy meets girl here's what they say... ♫ (They say) When the moon hits your eye like this Ravioli with Lobster in a rich red sauce, that's amore!
2. Sake2Me (Hays)
As someone who enjoyed their first wedding anniversary dinner at Sake2Me, I can vouch for both its romantic ambiance (complete with dimmed lighting) and delicious food.
3. Kate's (Dodge City)
Yes, it's a sports bar and yes, it's a little bit of a dive... BUT one visit to Kate's cozy grill with your loved one and you'll be ruined of all other restaurants for life.
4. Harry's (Manhattan)
Quite possibly one of the most romantic restaurants in the state of Kansas is that of Harry's, which specializes in tender steaks, sweet desserts, a fabulous wine list, and fairy tale atmosphere.
5. Rowhouse (Topeka)
Unique farm-to-table meals served in a historic downtown location? Sounds like a major date night win that is sure to earn you brownie points. *Wink.*
6. Cafe Bel Ami (Wichita)
Imagine sharing this slice of decadent black forest cake and a bottle of red wine with your honey... (Or, if you're like my hubby and me, each getting your own slice of cake and bottle of wine whilst sharing the same table.)
7. Martinelli's Little Italy (Salina)
Are you still saving up for that dream trip to Italy? Hold yourself over in the meantime by enjoying the deliciousness that is Martinelli's and their flavorful Shrimp Diablo.
8. J. Alexander's (Overland Park)
Two words: Filet Mignon. (Need I say more?)
9. Cafe Beautiful (Lawrence)
Cafe Beautiful is just that: a beautiful cafe that serves creative Asian Fusion in an intimate and memorable setting. (Tip: Be sure to save room for a gorgeous fruit salad for dessert!)
10. Radius Brewing Company (Emporia)
Do you and your significant other love the finer things in life (such as KU basketball, K-State football, and/or Royals baseball)? Then Emporia's premiere brewery (and pizzeria) is guaranteed to be your ultimate date night!
11. Airport Steakhouse (Hutchinson)
OK, I'll admit that buffets may not be the *most* romantic thing, but when the options are this tasty and are being served in a beautiful restaurant with killer views, it doesn't get much better.
