From Hashtag Currency Restaurants to Romance-Inducing Cafes

These social dining experiences are for foodies who also like a side of adventure with their meals. These restaurants, pop-up eateries and chains combine their meals with cinemas, interactive technology and other experiences that will make the food not the only thing worthy of talking about after patrons have left the table.

When it comes to the Internet's influence on dining, some great notable eateries include the Picture House by Bird's Eye and the Weight Watchers Feel Good Cafe, which share good food with diners, and treat them to a free meal if they return the favor by sharing on social media.

Even if you're without a dining companion but are looking for an interesting experience, the Moomin Cafe in Japan will set you up with a stuffed animal so that you're not totally lonely during dinner.
