These are the Best Restaurants in Rockford for a Solo Dinner Date
For as long as I can remember, I've always enjoyed eating alone in public. Perhaps it's the solitude and chit-chat free hour that I love, or maybe the confidence boost I get knowing that there's no shame in my solo dining game; whatever it is, I think people should take themselves out to a nice dinner at least once a month.
That opportunity arose for me last Friday night when I got sick of waiting for my boyfriend, Jason, to wake up from a nap. The temps were searing, we don't have A/C and I was hungry; talk about a bad combo. That's when I took it upon myself to say "screw this, I'm taking myself out tonight."
You'd think it would be easy to decide where to go, but I was struggling; there are so many food and restaurant choices in the Rockford area. That's when I asked for your help on Facebook. The question was, "If you were going to take yourself out for a nice dinner in Rockford, where would you go?"
These were the best responses:
- Stone Eagle Tavern
- Tavern on Clark
- Aero Ale House
- Merrill and Houston's in Beloit
- The Butterfly Club
- Deli Italia
- Ciao Bella
- Marc's Fusion
- Rusty Nail
- The Olympic
- Spider Sushi
- Ali Baba
- Fresco at the Gardens
- Kuma's on State
What would you add to the list? Where is your favorite place in Rockford to dine alone?
