Do you think the French call a chaste kiss "le Americain smoochez?" Probably not. We'll continue to give them credit for the best kisses, fried potatoes, and takes on toast. French cuisine is also the sexiest. Begin with dishes generously basted in butter and a tray of briny, fresh oysters. Combine that with elegant surroundings, outstanding service, and a killer bar program, and you have the perfect recipe for a romantic date night. While the restaurant has expanded, Meritage continues to feel like a quiet, secretive place where couples can whisper sweet nothings.
