#KoolKeeperSummer Date Night Destinations

Whether your version of a date night out is spending quality time with a sibling, parent, best friend or significant other, nothing is better than catching up over an incredible meal.

Personally, I’ve been lucky enough to spend my summer exploring Austin with my boyfriend, Sam, who is likewise working in the city. And perhaps even luckier for me is the fact that the two of us share a common love for Austin and a desire to enjoy every moment we have in this fun, eclectic and lively city. With that in mind, what better way to familiarize ourselves with Austin together than through food?

Sam has been my regular companion as I set out on my restaurant adventures in Austin, and together we’ve discovered what have become our favorite date night destinations. While diverse in their formality and cuisine selection, our top picks satisfy every hankering from a casual weeknight dinner to a dressier, celebratory weekend out. Hope you enjoy scrolling though the photo gallery to see some of the dishes we enjoyed.So grab a friend, family member or partner and head to my picks below for the best date night spots in Austin!
