On a date: Sure, you could go to an upscale French place, but there’s also lavish Lebanese, swanky Scandinavian and other underrepresented cuisines that are eager to please.

Impress the boss or the parents: Grand interiors, refined cuisine, and blinding wine lists make up these schmancy, fail-safe crowd-pleasers.

With the buddy brigade: Pile into a boisterous eatery, crash a trendy spot or snicker in the corner at a ridiculously gourmet lunch.
