The grandest foodie gesture you can give your loved one is an omakase sushi experience, and a meal at Oribe will be one for the books. Be sure to secure seats by the counter for the best view of the sushi-making process by the master. P.s If you’re here celebrating a special night, let the team know, and they'll likely fix something up for you.

Nothing spells romance like warmly lit dinners over Italian grub. The restaurant exudes a welcoming vibe, and the classic Italian dishes are more than satisfactory for two — wood-fired pizzas and pasta dishes for the win. Portions are rather generous, so we suggest turning this night into a double or triple date night out. The more the merrier!
