In honor of Valentine’s Day, we wondered if you couldn’t be with the one you love, which celebrity you’d love to dine with. In a new survey, OpenTable diners revealed that top celebrity dream dates include George Clooney, Eva Mendes, and Oprah Winfrey. Clooney was the most popular choice for women diners, snagging 44% of the votes, while Mendes is male diners’ top pick (35%). Winfrey, idol to millions of women, proved her influence as the third most popular pick for female diners overall, finishing behind Ryan Reynolds. With their smoldering good looks, it’s easy to see why Clooney and Mendes are the most desired dinner dates, but after 25 years on the air, Oprah Winfrey feels like every woman’s best friend, and who wouldn’t want to share a meal and girl talk with a close confidante — or someone who might give you a show on the OWN network?
Valentine’s Day is to dining out what New Year’s Eve is to drinking — Champagne, or anything else for that matter. As you may imagine, then, it’s been on our minds for quite some time. Even if it’s not yet on yours or you haven’t already made your reservations, we’d love your opinion on a few fun topics, including which celebrity you’d most like to dine with (if your s.o. weren’t available that evening, naturally).
