“A fresh take on food will always pique a millionaire’s interest. Wealthy men often gather at restaurants that provide an unconventional, yet extraordinary dining experience,” says Brandon Wade, Founder and CEO of SeekingMillionaire.com. “Millionaires choose locations that not only boast top-notch food, but also attract quality clientele. Beautiful decor, combined with even better company, set an overall astonishing frame of mind.”
Over 2.5 million New Yorkers are single. Restaurant Week enables everyone to go out, discover new dining options, and indulge in the very best culinary experiences that the city has to offer.
“Remember to dress for the occasion. You may only spend $38 for the pre-fixe menu, but your attire should imply that you are spending much more,” states Wade. “It’s important to make a great first impression, as millionaires are attracted to women who look the part.”
