How to Pick the Perfect Restaurant

Deciding where to go for dinner isn't just a question of what you want to eat — it's a question of who you want to be.

If you buy something from an Eater link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics policy.

Helen Rosner and Greg Morabito, hosts of the Eater Upsell podcast, explore the different personalities we put on and take off at restaurants, which depend largely on whether the plan is a first date, a too-cool-for-school dinner, or a quiet supper with your parents. Plus, Helen shares the scene-y restaurant she finds herself recommending most often.

As always, you can get the Eater Upsell on iTunes, listen on Soundcloud, subscribe via RSS, or search your favorite podcast app. You can also get the entire archive of episodes — plus transcripts, behind-the-scenes photos, and more — right here on Eater.
