New Yorkers don’t necessarily covet cuisine when it comes to choosing a restaurant for an extra-marital rendezvous. According to a new survey from AshleyMadison.com, in a city full of Michelin stars and AAA diamonds, food is the fourth most important factor in the restaurant choice of would-be adulterers. The dating site designed for those already in relationships polled 4,852 philanderers from the tri-state area and discovered the majority of cheaters prefer to chow down at chain steakhouses including Morton's and the Palm.
According to AshleyMadison.com’s Founder & CEO Noel Biderman. “Steak houses are a popular affair destination, no matter the city. They're dimly lit and can be more easily excused as a business meeting if necessary.” NY's top spot for a restaurant rendezvous is the W Hotel's Blue Fin, while Morton's and Cipriani- whose own website boasts of their venue's ability to create ‘an effortless affair'- rounded out the top 3.
1) Blue Fin
4) Ruth’s Chris
5) Del Frisco's
7) The Palm
8) Beauty & Essex
10)Blue Water Grill
A national survey of 43,280 respondents, reveals that most adulterers prefer to make reservations for Wednesday nights, typically prior to 6:30pm. See attached for complete survey results.
