I think the subject of “date night” is a bit tired. Obviously it’s a great idea, and is perfect “us” time…we all get it!
I do have one tip: get dressed up! If you are going somewhere for dinner that has linen tablecloths it’s acceptable to get “all decked out” (my mom’s way of saying ‘super dressed up’).
Shawn will wear a tie or jacket (never both), and I pull out a frock I wore one time to a wedding or got on sale that was fun to buy and haven’t had the opportunity to wear yet. Saying “Ciao” to the babysitter in a pair of heels just feels fantastic.
One more tip: order at least one martini.
P.S. I highly recommend Gramercy Tavern in NYC, and don’t skip the bread basket.
