Influenced by Italian and Spanish flavors, Milonga Argentine Steakhouse aliments appetites with an authentic menu of certified Angus beef grilled over imported Argentine wood and house-made pastas. Servers seat diners beneath the wooden beamed ceiling and coax out appetites with openers such as the homemade empanadas ($5 for two) that employ the heat of a rustic brick oven. Visible from the open kitchen, chefs shuttle around work stations, positioning slabs of meat atop open flames fueled by the imported quebracho wood that infuses its savory flavor into selections such as the signature skirt steak ($17 for half; $25 for full) or the brochette de lomo's skewered chunks of fillet, fresh pepper, and crispy pancetta ($19). Ladles scoop house-made pastas such as spinach and ricotta canelones ($13) or the pappardelle scarparo's fettuccini doused in fresh tomato basil sauce ($14). Afterwards, guests can sip coffee or hot tea ($2.25), coupled with house-made desserts including argentine shortbread ($5) or chocolate mousse topped with whipped cream and fresh berries ($8).

True to its name, The Teahouse at Asian Arts offsets its exotic Asian concoctions with a Silk Road-inspired ambience of traditional Asian artwork and décor—right down to the mahjongg you can play at your table while waiting for your food. Your journey to the East begins with two items from the appetizer menu, such as crabmeat dumplings or yodofu, a tofu and vegetables mix that comes with dipping sauce and a clean bill of karma. From there you'll be free to pick your entrees from a massive menu of sandwiches and wraps, specials such as Hannah's wasabi mussels in miso broth, and soups and dumplings, which come in beef, crab, Mothra, and vegetarian variations. End your excursion with two sweet desserts, such as a warm pear crumble or ice-creamy Japanese daifuku mochi. In between bites, The Teahouse at Asian Arts will delicately hose down dirty palates with an Around the World flight of five infused sake shots; seasoned sake-sippers, meanwhile, can order an eight-ounce carafe of their preferred varietal. For added fun, a seasoned chiromancer will give you and your date a mini palm reading that determines your romantic chances, the number of kids you'll have, and exactly how many Shriner cars will be involved in your death tomorrow.

Though he couldn't have known it at the time, Adam Caldwell arranged what arguably could be considered one of the most successful first dates in modern history. He not only ended up marrying his date, Danna, but also had such a memorable time with her in the frozen-yogurt shop that the two of them were eventually inspired to start their own. They opened Menchie's Frozen Yogurt in California in 2007, and within just a few years, found themselves with a family of hundreds of thriving stores sprinkled all around the world. ? As the Menchie's brand grew, Adam and Danna kept a simple mission in mind: to make their customers smile. An adorable cast of animated characters is featured throughout the stores, including on the colorful spoons, and customers can have fun creating endless frozen-yogurt combinations. There are almost 150 rotating yogurt flavors, and the selection includes eight versions of vanilla. Of course, there are plenty of toppings as well, displayed in help-yourself bins filled with fresh fruit, nuts, cereal, and candy. ? The yogurt is made from fresh milk from a California dairy, and it is free of the artificial growth hormone rSBT. All the yogurt is kosher, and certain flavors accommodate vegan and gluten-free diets.
