Hello everyone,

In everyday standard English, can we say " She invited me to Mike Tony's steakhouse to have dinner."? Compared with “she invited me to dinner at Mike Tony's steakhouse", which sentence is more common and more proper?

Thanks and regards

The way they are worded I would go with #2. But in #1 I would change it to, "She invited me for dinner at ......."

I would be a bit more likely to say "dinner at Mike Tony's steakhouse." (Is that a real restaurant? Should the S be capitalized?"

Many thanks for your time​. [STRIKE]!!![/STRIKE]

I shouldn't be having to correct these basic errors for you, Sky. You can write better English than that.
