One Small Dinner, So Many Possibilities...Exciting New Small Group Dating Service Launches in San Diego

May 8, 2012

An interesting new company has decided to make its national launch right here in San Diego. DinnerDate is a small group dating service that’s making San Diego restaurants the main ingredient for singles seeking new relationships. Below is a full description about who they are and what they have planned for America’s Finest City. Since their April launch, they have had over 1500 people sign up with a profile and DinnerDaters are already meeting one another at restaurants and events!

Last year, Travel + Leisure ranked San Diego as one of America’s best cities for foodies; just a year before that, it named the same city as one of America’s most romantic. Both of these factors may have inspired Robert Earl, Founder and CEO of Planet Hollywood, to make “America’s Finest City” the official launch place for DinnerDate, his newest venture that pairs the business of food and dating.

DinnerDate is a fun and exciting modern approach to dating that brings the focus back to the dinner table where savory food, artful ambiance, and lively conversations come alive. As an innovative small group dating service that actively introduces like-minded singles OFF-line, DinnerDate encourages individuals to meet face-to-face over hosted group dinners at the city’s top-rated restaurants. Singles can now step away from their computers and back into the real world — all while enjoying San Diego’s top-rated restaurants!

Here’s how it works: DinnerDate organizes a dinner for 6 to 12 like-minded singles at the city’s best restaurants. Members, also known as DinnerDaters, are invited to mix and mingle with a group of potential matches while dining on a tantalizing prix-fixed menu in a fun, safe, and social environment. One of the DinnerDaters will play the role of host to ensure the best possible interactions amongst everyone.

The inherent benefits of DinnerDate are many! The group dynamic helps to avoid the awkwardness associated with one-on-one dates; the “live” interactions ensures an end to online communication that often proves fruitless; and, because DinnerDaters don’t see members’ pictures prior to the event, the notion of romance is alive and well. DinnerDaters rest assured that everyone attending fits their specified criteria of interests, and at the end of the night, are guaranteed to go home with a smile on their lips — at least for the food!

It’s easy (and free) to sign up; there’s no monthly subscription fee. To attend any of DinnerDate’s many events, members pay just $5 in addition to prepaying for the meal online. Frequency of participation is completely up to each member’s whim. And, dinners can even be shared amongst single friends, who are encouraged to sign up as well. Once the dinner takes place, attendees are free to contact other attending members online, or simply in person while still at the dinner.

DinnerDate is exciting news for San Diego’s singles, as well as the city’s blossoming restaurant scene. The company will inevitably shed light on noteworthy restaurants from downtown to Hillcrest to North County and beyond. Now, dinners and dating in America’s most romantic city is more enjoyable than ever before!
