10 Romantic Date Hotspots For BAE

 

Sure, you could Google the most expensive restaurant in town and simply spend your entire paycheck on an overpriced meal in a predictable setting… but, is that what’s really going to impress BAE (the person you put Before Anyone Else)? NOPE. Of course, the food has to be amazing, but the ambiance is what’s going to give your sweetie the feels.  Memorize these ten delicious hotspots filled with special touches to woo your boo. 

 

1 Parts of Paris, Safety Harbor

Don’t worry – this place has the delicious French fare your amour desires without the stuffiness that usually comes along with it. Snuggled inside a bungalow-style house, the highly acclaimed cuisine and friendly service creates smiles brighter than the white linen tables.

2 FarmTable Cucina, downtown St. Pete

If your plus-one is a self-proclaimed “foodie”… honestly, who isn’t these days? Then sign yourselves up for the FarmTable Experience, which is an eight course chef’s tasting dinner for up to 10 guests in their private dining room. Taste new foods, make new friends and win major cool points!

3 RumFish Grill, St. Pete Beach

Nothing is more impressive than feeling like you’re dining inside a massive 33,500 gallon fish tank without getting wet. The tank covers the entire western wall of the restaurant, so ask for a table right next to the aquarium to get the full effect. Kick it up a notch and have a diver deliver a personal message on a sign from inside the aquarium… epic marriage proposal idea anyone??

4 Caretta on the Gulf, Clearwater Beach

Is the sunset kind of a big deal for your snookums? Then before-dinner drinks on the Gulf Patio are a must: picture a little bubbly, fire-lit tables, and swanky lounge furniture overlooking a perfect Clearwater Beach sunset. Inside, request a table for two by the window – more stunning views with impeccable food will make the heart grow fonder.

5 Pia's Trattoria, Gulfport

A little wine, fresh pasta and authentic Italian music paired with the most adorable outdoor patio under twinkling lights will make your sugarplum feel like you’re dining in the Tuscan countryside. The romantic feelings will be flowing without damaging your cash flow.

6 The Living Room on Main, Dunedin

Because sharing is caring, your honey will feel your affection with each dish at this chilled out tapas restaurant. Order a few different plates to take a culinary adventure, but leave room for their signature chocolate dessert, the Mary Margaret Marquise. Trust – just like BAE, it’s worth the wait! Also, live music is a nightly affair, so practice your sway just in case.

7 Lanna Thai and Sushi, St. Petersburg

Your babydoll has been nagging you about a trip to Thailand, but your bank account only has enough to get you to Georgia? We got you. This place isn't super impressive from the outside, but you'll feel like you’re stepping into an authentic Thai temple. Seize the opportunity to show off your chopstick skills!

8 The Mill Restaurant, downtown St. Pete

If you’re all about the titles, then your pookie will swoon when you announce you’re going to the Golden Spoon awarded “Best New Restaurant in Florida.” The excitement doesn’t stop there. The food and drinks are top notch for sure, but the repurposed rustic décor will keep your eyes wandering – wait til you see the bathrooms!

9 Maritana Grille, St. Pete Beach

Because every princess should get to dine inside a beautiful pink palace. (Feel free to use that line.) Nestled inside the infamous Don Cesar Hotel on St. Pete Beach, you just can’t have a bad meal when you’re surrounded by southern hospitality and historic charm.
