Pete Davidson says he takes women to good restaurants so that if he is a bad date, the food redeems their experience.
Speaking to host Ruthie Rogers on Tuesday's episode of iHeartMedia's "River Cafe Table 4" podcast, the 28-year-old "Saturday Night Live" ("SNL") comedian spoke about the role of dinner dates when pursuing a romantic interest.
"It's also like if you go to a great restaurant, even if I'm a shitty date, it's like at least the food was great," he said. "So, she can go home and be like, 'He paid, and I ate.'"
Elaborating on date formats that he thinks are easy, he said: "I've always found that or a movie is so easy because you don't have to talk, you can just be like 'Woah, did you see that explosion?'"
"Or you can just laugh at the same thing and look at each other for a second," he added.
When asked by Rogers if it is a dealbreaker when a date is rude to restaurant staff, Davidson said "I hate that," adding that such behavior would immediately write off any romantic prospects.
"Yeah, I don't like the 'excuse me,'" he added. "It's just like, wait for the guy to walk by."
In early November, fans speculated about Davidson's dating life when Page Six reported that he arranged a private rooftop dinner with Kim Kardashian West, 41, at Campania, a Staten Island-based Italian restaurant that Davidson said was one of his favorites in a 2019 interview with Paper magazine.
Insider's Rachel Askinasi previously reported that Campania has a "relaxed tone" with an "extensive" menu including clams oreganata, half-and-half pizzas, and handmade pasta dishes.
Askinasi wrote that she could see why Davidson would choose the restaurant for dinner with the fashion mogul, because it had "great service and truly solid food."
Davidson and Kardashian West were first spotted holding hands on a roller coaster at Knott's Scary Farm in Buena Park, California, on October 29, People reported. A source dismissed the rumors and told the publication: "It's just friends hanging out."
