PLAN DATE: WEDS / SEPT. 18
Needing a zen moment with your lover? Head to T Shop, a cozy tea house that keeps it soothing and minimalist with simple white walls, a wooden counter, and teapots in muted tones. They have an incredible selection of teas at a range of prices, so you can loosen your cash on some high quality loose leaf or keep it simple with a more common tea. For a real boost, try their oolong tea and prepare for an oooo long relaxation (sorry, we had to!).
Babs keeps the warm and welcoming vibe but adds a dose of chicness. This European restaurant has amber marble columns and delicate place settings mixed with cozy booths and soothing art to keep you feeling fancy yet comfortable. Their food is influenced by Vienna and Basque Country, with a specialization in seafood. Try the creative Crab Salad Hash and Divorced Sea Bream or keep it classic with a great lobster, all washed down with regional wines.
