What makes you decide to go out for a meal?

Why you decide to eat out of home?
For a change?
Tempted by some delicious dishes that gave you good memories?
A treat?
A romantic evening out with your lovers?

Because it makes a nice change from time to time. And today was OH's 65th birthday - so it was a nice treat.

Re: Why you decide to eat out of home?

Its just jolly pleasant to go on a hot date with your wife every now and then!

And besides, you need to celebrate the fact that its a Wednesday (or Thurs/Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon/Tue). It only comes around once per week!!

Why going back to the same restaurant?

I constantly and repeatedly visit the same restaurant.
Does this happen to you also?

Do you know why?

Re: Why you decide to eat out of home?

because somebody invites me...

or because I want to spend some good time with friends, without having to cook myself.

Re: Why you decide to eat out of home?

Because I don't buy everyday-a-new-dress! instead I prefer to take time out for myself or with friends or hubby , as it is quite monotonous to cook every day

Re: Why you decide to eat out of home?

One day a week we should all swap partners, then we would get a change of set meals!

For all the reasons you mention apart from the last one.

A dinner invitation from a nice, male friend is also a good reason...

Re: Why you decide to eat out of home?

Because my husband gets tired of eating healthy lunches at his desk cooked by me of course and on the weekends I announce we ran out of food and the shops are closed
Not too impressed so far...

Oh yes I know why! Because many, many, times I have spent a lot of money eating rubbish! I usually stay at home now and buy some expensive ingredients from the supermarket.

Re: Why going back to the same restaurant?

There's an Argentinian restaurant I've been taken to several times. It's expensive but the food, wine, decor and ambiance are superb. Can't wait until the next invitation...

Re: Why you decide to eat out of home?

I usually do it for a treat, sometimes I pay, sometimes my husband pays but we do it to spend some quality time together and do something different. We usually go to different places, maybe nothing fancy but just different...

Of course Bertrand - but sometimes it is also that the staff are really nice and there is a great atmosphere.
