If you think your spouse is cheating, you might want to check Morton’s Steakhouse.
Online dating service AshleyMadison.com, which connects married individuals looking to having an affair, found in a recent survey that chain restaurants are the top locations cheaters go to meet.
The website polled 42,890 of their users who admitted which restaurants they most often frequent with their lovers; Morton’s Steakhouse topped the list, The Huffington Post reported.
“Steakhouses are always a popular affair destination since they’re not only dimly lit but also commonly found in business districts, close to hotels where these types of dates typically end,” said Ashley Madison Founder and CEO Noel Biderman.
Popular chain establishments including Chili’s, P.F. Chang’s, The Cheesecake Factory and Red Lobster also made the top 10. Biderman said chain restaurants are popular among the affair-driven crowd, stating that those polled said they prefer to bring their dates to locations that are located at least 20 miles away from home.
“Chain restaurants are larger and more conspicuous,” said Biderman, telling The New York Post that small mom-and-pop restaurants are seemingly off-limits to cheaters.
Other restaurants that fell short of making the top 10 included Italian restaurant Cipriani, and upscale seafood joint Blue Fin in Times Square, N.Y., that Biderman said are also ideal places for working adults looking to congregate.
“You can put it on your credit card and not worry about your partner seeing that you went somewhere romantic like Per Se,” he said.
AshleyMadison.com made its debut in 2002 and has since attracted more than 18 million users across 26 countries.
