Getting together over a bounty of food and drink to celebrate a joyous occasion or the marking of a milestone is an age-old tradition. There is something about sharing a meal that makes people feel immediately comfortable, naturally opening up a channel for conversation to unfold. It is an opportunity to strengthen bonds and reacquaint with old friends. No wonder restaurants are such a popular setting for first dates, meetings, birthdays, and other important events – it’s a safe choice. Eating is something everyone does regardless, and it’s always better when you’re in good company. Many of life’s best memories will be made over the course of a lunch or dinner. A restaurant may be the place where you fall in love; the eventual backdrop for your proposal; and the site of your anniversaries to come.
The Wilmington, Delaware area has an abundance of restaurants to suit every palate and fit any budget. Explore the world through food as you experience new cuisines for the first time, or revisit familiar favorites that remind you of home. Whether the reason is a celebratory gathering or simply to avoid doing the dishes, dining out should be a pleasurable and relaxing activity. Plan ahead to ensure your outing goes smoothly. It doesn’t have to be a complicated affair but consider a few things before stepping out the door:
Where is the restaurant, and will there be sufficient parking nearby? Depending on the time and day of the week, restaurants can be quite busy – doubly so on holidays such as Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day. While many restaurants have ample private parking, you may have to rely on street parking or parking garages for others. This can be a hassle if you are running late for your dinner reservation. The last thing you want to do is walk several blocks from your car to the restaurant if you’ve dressed up for the occasion (high heels and two-piece suits are not conducive to excessive physical activity). Don’t show up to dinner sweaty and flustered… Take a taxi instead. Our driver will drop you off right outside the restaurant so you can walk in feeling calm, cool, and collected.
Will you be doing any drinking? Many people enjoy pairing dinner (or lunch, we suppose) with a glass of wine or a beer. After all, why not? You deserve it after a long week, and dining out is all about indulgence. All too often though, one drink can become a few drinks as you get caught up in the moment with your dining companions. This leaves you with a dilemma if you’ve brought your own vehicle to the restaurant. You may be tempted to drive home – despite knowing that you shouldn’t – simply because you don’t want to leave your car behind. The best thing to do is take a taxi for the night if you intend to drink at all. This allows you to freely enjoy yourself without worry, knowing that you have a safe ride home when you need it.
With these things in mind, give our taxi service a call when you’re ready to head out to the restaurant. Or, you can book a taxi in advance for added peace of mind when it comes to those especially important dinner engagements. We are able to accommodate groups, large or small. Just let your driver know where you would like to go and you’re all set! Don’t hesitate to pick your driver’s brain for the latest scoop on the restaurant scene during your trip as well… They’ll undoubtedly have a few recommendations for you. Focus on having a great time and making lasting memories – we’ve got you taken care of.
