Experiential dining restaurant rekindles date night with a dedicated weekly night of romance
Entering a new decade creates an opportunity to look back at the evolution of dating over the last ten years. Online dating is now the norm, social media is transforming how we engage in conversations, and texting, direct messaging or swiping right has often replaced the need for a phone call to initiate a date. What hasn’t changed is how important date nights are to the success of a relationship. For over four decades, Melting Pot®, the world’s premier fondue restaurant, has provided the backdrop for significant romantic celebrations and continued love stories. From date nights to proposals and anniversaries, the experiential dining experience at Melting Pot helps turn moments into memories and creates genuine connections between couples whether they have been together for 20 days or 20 years.
Melting Pot believes that the romance doesn’t
have to stop after Valentine’s Day. According to findings from “The
Date Night Opportunity,” a report from the University of Virginia’s National Marriage Project that
surveyed over 1,600 married couples aged 18-55, regular weekly date nights can
help keep a relationship
healthy. Couples who dedicated at least one time each week to just each other
were 3.5 times more likely to report being “very happy.”
Starting on March 5,
Melting Pot will be turning up the heat on date nights by making every Thursday
a Thursdate. Thursdates take the planning out of
date night—simply make a reservation and let Melting Pot take care of the rest.
“The perfect date comes down to the details,” said Bob Johnston,
CEO of Front Burner, the restaurant management company for Melting Pot. “Upon
arrival, rose petals and candles will be on the table and couples can sit back
and enjoy quality time together over four delicious courses, perfectly paired with
our decadent Thursdate drinks.”
The special Thursdate four-course menu will begin
with artisan cheese fondue, followed by a fresh salad course and premium entrée
course including tender filet mignon, Atlantic salmon, savory teriyaki sirloin
and more. Couples can take their Thursdate to the next level by adding a
lobster tail to their entrée. Romance won’t stop there as couples indulge in Melting
Pot’s most decadent dessert, Sparkling Chocolate Fondue.
are several benefits to having more regular date nights, as outlined in “The
Date Night Opportunity” report.
