So you’ve got a date. Congratulations! You might just be one step closer to finding that person to spend the rest of your life with – or not, of course. Regardless, if you’ve decided you want to go out with them, you probably want to make the date as romantic as possible, and charm their socks off.
For something classic with a twist…
£10 Steak at Flat Iron
Steak is classic date food, but it can cost a pretty penny. Not at Flat Iron! With only one permanent dish on the menu, a £10 flat iron steak cooked to your liking, there’s no going wrong at this restaurant. Order a side of creamed spinach and chips and a carafe of wine, and settle in for a romantic evening.
