April 25, 2008 - Restaurants to Rev Your Engine


It's Spring time and just like spring flowers, hot new date spots are sprouting up all over town.

Take advantage of the new blossoms and invite your significant other somewhere new this weekend.

Here are just a few new romantic dinner locales across the country:

San Francisco
Waterbar: Ambiance is what this San Fran eatery does best. Aside from the savory shellfish and whole fish on the menu, the restaurant boasts a picturesque view of the San Francisco skyline. Inside the restaurant, gaze at the 19-foot tall, floor-to-ceiling, circular aqariums filled with the fresh catches of the day or the hand-blown glass "caviar" chandelier.

Chicago
Mercat a la Planxa: More tapas have come to town! Chicago's new Catalan destination on Michigan Ave. provides an array of delightful Spanish small plates. It is best to accompany your meal with a pitcher of fruity sangria or sparkling Cava.

Austin
Cibo: Inspired by the "tri-Veneti" regions of Northern Italy, celebrity chef Will Packwood has crafted a menu for you Italian-lovers. Fresh ingredients, elegant and unpretentious cuisine make up this new romantic spot's assortment.

Your date will be delighted that his or her sweetie is so in-the-know on the sexiest new spots in town.
