PLAN DATE: TUES / JUNE 11
This compact bistro clothed in scarlet hues and warm light just beckons for romance to take place within, and when it comes to succulent French food that deepens the mood, Le P’tit Paris Bistro takes you there. Mussels in white wine, Poulet Cordon Bleu, steak frites, and a super satisfying burger make up the menu, while creme brulee and fraises melba hit the sweet spot for dessert. Best of all? It’s the most reasonably priced French food around, without sacrificing a single bit of quality.
After that lovely, classic French dinner, quell your thirst for fun and games over at Buttermilk Bar. This charmingly straightforward outpost is decked out in sentimental stuff like tabletop Ms. Pacman, pool, air hockey, darts and pinball machines for the kind of nightcap that feels as dreamy and free as teen love, with the drinks turning it up a notch. It’s divey, it’s spacious, and it’s the kind of solid, contemporary bar that is actually cool enough to pull this thing off. Head in with your person for some laughter, excitement and the kind of competition that makes your bond stronger.
