Whether you are hitting the town with a new love or are escaping for a night out without the kids, we have rounded up a few haute ideas for your special date night. Here’s a look at some of Boston’s best date spots.
1 Top of the HubTop of the Hub
Whether you are coming here for a first date or to pop the question, The Top of the Hub is the place to get some romance on. The restaurant with floor-to-ceiling views of Boston and beyond from high atop the 52nd story of the Prudential Center serves up lunch and dinner daily (with brunch served on Sundays). Executive Chef Stefan Jarausch creates a selection of daily specials that may include cured salmon with avocado and chili oil; or seared scallops served atop creamy risotto topped with beurre blanc. Standout favorites include crispy calamari, enormous Maine mussels and seared Atlantic salmon served with roasted potatoes and vegetables. A visit here would be remiss without sharing a slice of carrot cake.

There is no better way to win a girl's heart over than by way of chocolate. On Saturdays from September to June, Cafe Fleuri at The Langham Boston is transformed into a spectacular Chocolate Bar chock full every decadent white, milk and dark favorite imaginable from hot chocolate and chocolate ice cream to a chocolate fountain for dipping pretzels, marshmallows and fruit. The all-you-can-eat buffet features more than 100 offerings each week from Executive Chef Mark Sapienza and Executive Pastry Chef Ryan Pike.

One of the best ways to break that awkward first date ice is with a comedy show. Laugh Boston in the Seaport District features some of the biggest acts coming to Boston.
