Preparing for a date, whether it’s the first with a special new person or a night out with a longtime significant other, can be both exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. A delicious meal is often an important part of creating a memorable date, but deciding where to go and what to eat can be challenging.

To make your next date night extra special, choose a restaurant that offers lobster – the hallmark of a special occasion. While some may be hesitant to crack a whole lobster when on a date, there are a variety of other ways to enjoy lobster while out to eat. 

“Lobster is a great choice as part of a date night meal because of its versatility,” said Chef Dustin Hilinski, Executive Chef and Director of Culinary at Red Lobster. “A lot of people don’t realize that there are a number of different ways to enjoy lobster besides whole steamed or grilled.”

Here are some great ways to order lobster on your next date night.

Choose Lobster as an Ingredient. If you’re looking for a way to incorporate lobster into your favorite dish, ask for it as a topping. Lobster meat is a great topping on fresh fish, steak or even a creamy pasta.  

Enjoy a Flavorful Combo Plate. For seafood lovers who crave variety, look for a lobster tail as part of a combination plate. Pairing lobster with another seafood, like salmon or shrimp, is a delicious way to enjoy a variety of your favorite flavors all on one plate.

Try a New Twist on the Tail. A lobster tail is a great way to make lobster the star of the plate, but there are more ways to enjoy it than you may realize. At Red Lobster’s Lobsterfest, which is happening now, try a new twist on the lobster tail with the Lobster Mix and Match – featuring the choice of two Maine lobster tails prepared four different ways – Creamy Shrimp-Topped Lobster Tail, Seafood-Stuffed Lobster Tail, Steamed Maine Lobster Tail or Grilled Maine Lobster Tail.

If you want to wow your date with an impressive selection of lobster preparations, plan your next date night at Red Lobster during Lobsterfest. For a limited time, guests can enjoy the largest variety of lobster dishes all year. To find a location near you, visit redlobster.com.
