Keeping romance alive is easy when couples make time for each other. Catch up with your spouse heading out for a date-night bite to eat. Or get to know your new special someone by sharing a late-night dinner at one of our favorite restaurants.

Get cozy at Acqua Pazza California Bistro. Eat here as late as 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday; 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday. The bar boasts an array of specialty martinis, wine, and beer. Or let down your hair by sampling any number of its tequilas. Feed your date skewers of peppered filet mignon strips or lightly fried oysters. You supply the dessert.
