Sure, overpriced dinners for Valentine’s Day are as much a part of the day of love as candy and flowers, but according to chefs, you’re better off eating at home and celebrating at the restaurant of your choice on any other night. Here’s why eating out on Valentine’s Day is a bad idea:
- It’s overpriced: Restaurants take advantage of the day by hiking up prices … and often lowering the quality.
- It’s never romantic: Every restaurant is crowded and loud, and your meal will likely be rushed because they need to turn the table over for the next reservation.
- It’s out of your control: You might take your date to a restaurant you love but that doesn’t mean the experience will be good. If you make something special at home you can guarantee how romantic and delicious everything will be. (NBC News)
