Top 5 First Date Spots

In reverse order, my top picks for a nice place to take that special someone:

5) Franklin Fountain - This traditional 1920s-style "ice-cream saloon" serves up old-fashioned, homemade ice cream sundaes and floats in portions so huge that they have to be shared. And after indulging your sweet tooth, you and your date can take a leisurely stroll down Penn's Landing for some good conversation (and much-needed digestion)!

4) Aqua - Simple yet sleek, this unfussy Malaysian/Thai BYOB is the ideal spot for a first date, and will fit his budget (nothing is over $15). The row of cozy tables and impressive waterfall add a nice touch.

3) La Fontana Della Citta - One of the few Italian BYOBs in Center City where diners are not squashed together elbow-to-elbow. The warm, welcoming atmosphere lends itself to a relaxed meal over lingering conversation - a recipe for first date success.

2) Cuba Libre - Walking into Cuba Libre is like being transported to Havana in the 1940s - the palm trees, big ceiling fans, and salsa music. The upbeat, tropical ambience will surely quell any first date jitters.

1) Amada - Along with the hip decor, open kitchen and vibrant music, Amada stands apart with its Spanish tapas experience, where the small plates are meant to be shared. Sampling dishes together is a surefire way to break the ice on a first date!
