Do you have a go-to restaurant for date night? Or perhaps you like to try a new place each time? It can be hard to know where to go. The perpetual “I don’t know what do you want to do” followed by “no not that”. One of my favorite things is to write down the places we want to try, put them in a jar, and draw one out when trying to make plans. Keeps it interesting and lets you try all the places you’ve been wanting to. But what is the best date night restaurant in North Carolina?

Well, you’re going to have to take a road trip to experience it. According to a list by LoveFoodBlog, the City of Oaks is home to the best date night restaurant in North Carolina. It is in fact one I’ve tried, though not on a date. I’d highly recommend brunch in addition to dinner. However, they don’t take reservations for either meal. Beasley’s Chicken and Honey is located in the heart of downtown Raleigh. The menu features the restaurant’s signature fried chicken dripping with honey. They also have some fantastic sandwiches, salads, and southern favorites like pot pie, meatloaf, and fried catfish.
