In addition to given options, we asked readers + followers to submit their ideas. With answers ranging from chain restaurants to locally-owned shops, here’s what you said: 

“Something creative/unique. Something that’s fun to go to when you have guests visiting or a special occasion like a birthday.”Sara O.
“Adult restaurant, not a pub or sports grill. Noise quiet enough to talk; we don’t need racket to think we are in a hip joint. Good basic home cooked food. Not everything fried in grease. Grillsmith is the closest to that. I’d love to hear other options. Not a chain is even better.”Charlene B.
“Soul food.”Robyn F
“A good diner like the ones in the north east.”Megan M.
“Fondue!!!! That would be awesome and so much fun!!!”Victoria C
“Ukrainian.” — Yvonne P.
