Top Restaurants Picks From Around The World For Foodie Couples

What is it about food that makes it so important and necessary for every celebratory occasion? Other than the fact we need food to live, there are a lot of psychological reasons on why we eat. A lot of times, we eat when we’re sad, happy, and nervous. At times, we eat simply out of boredom!

The great thing about food is that there isn’t just one kind. The types of cuisines around the world are endless, and if you were to spend your whole life trying to get a taste of it all, it’d be downright impossible. Every food comes with a rich history and culture. You may not think much of it as you’re munching down your second burger, but the food is what unites us and is the only thing capable of gathering loved ones around one table.

Paging all foodies, paging all foodies!

Other than being awarded the Best New Restaurant in America in 2014, Peche Seafood Grill is your seafood heaven.

Yoshihiro Narisawa is the head chef of this two Michelin star restaurant in Tokyo. Narisawa spent most of his twenties working in prestigious kitchens in Europe before opening his own restaurant in 1996. His strong connection with nature and the world around him influences the food presented on his menu. Because his surroundings inspire most of his creations, expect to see names such as “Bread of the Forest” and “Evolve with the Forest” as you order.

This one is for all my carnivores out there. If you’re a fan of smoked meat and inexpensive, delicious food, this is the place for you. Head chef, Luke Powell takes pride in his smoked and cured meats that are cooked in a southern pride smoker.
