NOLA’S PERFECT DATE FOR FOODIES
Planning a date can be tricky –especially if it’s the first. You want to impress your special someone, without looking too eager (/desperate). Here are a few ideas that might help you out.
While this place might seem a bit pricey at first, you’ll be happy to know that they serve 25c martinis for lunch during the week. Now, that’s a good deal. Sadly, they have a 3 per person limit.
Every Friday, this divine upscale creole restaurant offers a 3-course lunch menu for $23. This is honestly one of the city’s most delicious spots, so don’t miss out.
Since cocktails here are to die for, their $6 happy hour is a pretty good deal. We particularly like the St Rose Sour, but to be honest anything on their menu is incredible. #TrustTheBartender
From 3-6pm enjoy half off wine, cocktails, beer AND half-off their wonderful (!!) artisan, oven-cooked pizzas. We especially recommend the Gorgonzola, speck, honey and apple pizza.
Every Wednesday-Friday, enjoy some delicious $4 tapas while listening to some lovely music.
Step into a wine shop, grab a bottle, choose your cheeses and take a seat at the outdoor terrace, under the fairy lights by the stage. Listen to jazz and fall in love.
If you’d like to break the ice, order some deliciously messy ribs and dig in! If she digs it, then you know she’s a keeper.
This one won’t be cheap, so make sure he/she is worth it. Order the surprisingly romantic “Champagne and fries” ($50/$90), which comes with either a glass or a bottle of Laurent-Perrier. #OppositesAttract
While these guys are all over the US, they’re headquartered in NOLA. For a $125 annual membership, this exclusive members-only supper club allows you to partake in incredible dining experiences concocted by up-and-coming chefs. Take a seat at a communal table in a warehouse type setting. Best part: the after-dinner scorecard!
Order their big $45 seafood platter to share –with a bottle of wine (or bubbly). The platter includes oysters, shrimps and delicious seafood salads, which would make any foodie happy.
TUESDAY DINNER & DRINKS
For some local cuisine in a groovy setting, take your date to Jacques Imo’s. Make sure to order their watermelon mojito! After dinner, head straight to the Maple Leaf Bar to watch the Rebirth Brass Band. If that won’t get you laid, we don’t know what will.
Monday – Friday : $10
Saturday & Sunday : $15
After 5pm Daily : $8
Whether you decide to go for lunch, dinner or drinks, bring your swimsuit with you and enjoy the pool, sauna and Jacuzzi.
