Depending on your source, the sexiest thing you can do on a date varies quite a bit. Your current Ms. or Mr. Thing may be pleased with some high heels or a new top, while that high-maintenance type you met on OkCupid expects a blowout, professionally done makeup, and unscuffed Louboutins.
And then there's Anthony Bourdain. He just wants you to eat a good meal.
A perfect date is with a person who eats without fear, prejudice, or concerns about his or her appearance. I remember one of my first dates with my wife: She ordered a six-pound lobster. I sat there, enraptured, watching her suck every bit of meat from it — she got a standing ovation from the floor staff. She's the kind of woman who will order filet mignon as an appetizer followed by a T-bone steak. Her fearless, open-minded approach to food is completely alluring.
Furthermore, he advises you avoid hoity-toity restaurants with white tablecloths and tasting menus. Hit up a dive spot instead for an indulgent but not-too-refined dining experience. He makes a good point — especially if it's a first date in need of an icebreaker, a crazy meal is definitely something to talk about, and can spark conversation about past and future experiences. Plus, if you're getting sick of that weekly date-night rut (read: rent a movie, order pizza), this might be just the thing you need to spice things up.
