What is your favorite restaurant? Where would you most likely take someone on a date once you get past the coffee phase? I would have to say that I would take someone for some sushi if they were into that. I love sushi and while it is more expensive, it is something I would like to share with someone.
I would asses his tastes and personality and choose a restaurant accordingly. I live within walking distance or a short drive of several excellent restaurants. -- If he isn't really a restaurant kind of person, I'd pick up a pizza or some burritoes from a food truck or some tasty "hole in the wall" type joints I know, pack a cooler of beer/wine or other beverage, and head to the beach to watch sunset or the colors change in the sky. No one to bother us, and we could chat the evening away.
I used to meet men for a first date at a bar-b-q place on Cave Run Lake, near Morehead, KY, followed by a hike up to Lockegee Rock, and an easy rock climb to the top.
That way I didn't waste my Saturday day off, and got in a nice birding hike. Any men not up for such things were easily noted and eliminated from consideration.
