5 Sexy Restaurants For Date Night

Top 5 sexy restaurants for date night in Berks County.

Viva Castle Pub 

5311 Perkiomen Ave, Reading, PA 19606, (610) 779-1000  www.vivacastlepub.com

While any of Viva’s 3 existing locations are the perfect date night, I have chosen Viva Castle Pub out of the three since it is the newest and it’s location at the Reading Country Club makes it the perfect night out on the town with that special someone. For starters try the Strawberry Baked Brie, Sweet Potato Pub Fries or the Spicey Battered-Dipped Shrimp. If you are just going for light fare try the Kobe Burger with Wagyu Beef Patty, Melted Brie, Applewood-Smoked Bacon, and Truffled Mustard Aioli. If you are looking for something a bit more substantial we recommend the  Citrus Roasted or Sweet Potato-Encrusted Salmon and possibly the Seafood Mac & Cheese for your significant other. The architecture and the ambiance, what else could you ask for?

Building 24 Restaurant

1115 Bern Rd, Wyomissing, PA 19610, (610) 375-2700,  www.bldg24.com

Building 24 always seems to keep the kitchen fresh with new Chefs and a new menu seasonally.  While you may want to avoid the restaurant during their weekly Saturday night dance party due to overcrowding, every other night of the week there is a culinary delight in a beautiful atmosphere. I recommend the PA Maple and Chili Glazed Wings with Smoky Buttermilk Blue Cheese Dressing, Toasted Pecans for an appetizer. The main course brings such delights as Porcini Dusted Filet Mignon, Roasted Lancaster Chicken, and Korean Marinated Pork Loin. Chef Ryan McQuillan keeps the kitchen flavor fresh and the specials tantalizing each week.

Willoughby’s  On Park

305 N Park Rd, Wyomissing, PA 19610, (610) 816-7473  www.willoughbysonpark.com

Berks County’s version of the classic Steakhouse and Raw Bar. Elegantly designed and featuring one of the best menus in Berks County. For appetizers, you have to try the Beef Carpaccio, Wasabi Thai Calamari and the Lobster Tempura. Main courses to enhance your evening are the Lobster Ravioli with a whole Lobster Tail, 26 oz Porterhouse or the Kobe Waygu Tomahawk for two. A great wine selection and dessert selection add to the atmosphere. Try Wednesday nights when DJ Evolution spins an eclectic mix of soothing sounds to hint at a party atmosphere.

 

Knights Pub @ Stokesay Castle 

141 Stokesay Castle Ln, Reading, PA 19606,   (610) 375-6100,   www.theknightspub.com

If one castle wasn’t enough we have yet another one to add to your date night list. The Knights Pub located at the top of the mountain in Stokesay Castle is a culinary delight. To start, try the Portobello French Fries or the Wonton Wrapped Wasabi Shrimp. While they have a great selection of burgers and sandwiches I would hold off for the Wild Boar with a Juniper berry demi, asparagus, and feta mashed potatoes. You may also want to try the Chilean Sea Bass with roasted corn and crab salsa with a Sherry cream sauce.  Those less adventurous can try the more traditional Surf & Turf. 

 

Dan’s @ Green Hills – 2444 Morgantown Rd. Reading, PA 19607   www.dansatgreenhills.com

Dan’s makes the list for those of you who are simply foodies. Nothing like an excellent meal to get your night started off right and you really can’t do much better than the menu selection at this fine dining establishment. Take a trip up Rt. 10 to the Flying Hills exit and you will be able to find such superb dishes as the Pan Roasted Nordic Wolffish that is Pistachio Encrusted with Apple Fig Risotto & Orange Glaze. Try the  “Prime” Filet Mignon of Beef Roasted with Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Chipollini Moscato Jam & Red Wine Demi or the Asian Encrusted Tuna Wasabi w Thai Peanut,  Soba Noddle Salad Carrot, Red Pepper & Snow Peas. 

For starters look for the Sweet Potato Soup flavored with Apples, Pretzel Dust, Spiced Whipped Cream, Sunflower Seeds & Thyme or the Lump Crab Cake w Roasted Pumpkin Salsa, Pumpkin Seeds & Cranberry Aioli.

 

These 5 restaurants should quench your thirst for culinary delights on your next evening with someone special!
