Grab a glass of wine, and let’s dive in….
With a whopping total of 35 dates these last two weeks, Atlanta is clearly our #1 city. If you’re a regular reader of my blogs, you’ll know that Ziba’s Bistro is no stranger to the FROME limelight. With a jaw-dropping 9 dates in a single week (yes, you read that correctly), it’s clear that they’ve mastered the art of romantic ambiance. But let’s not forget about a close contender, Barcelona Wine Bar. With 4 fabulous dates and counting this week, it’s certainly giving Ziba’s a run for it’s money. So, whether you’re an Atlanta native or just passing through, these two hotspots clearly promise to create some amazing memories.
New York is proving to be a force to be reckoned with, hosting a total of 14 fantastic dates over the last few weeks. And guess what? Two unlikely contenders have risen to the top, showcasing the diverse range of dating experiences the city has to offer. First up, we have the Art Bar—a hidden gem tucked away in the heart of the city, where creativity and charm collide to create an unforgettable ambiance. But wait, hold the phone— is that a Starbucks I see ? Yes, you read that right! The iconic coffee shop has unexpectedly become a go-to spot, hosting 6 dates of its own. Who would’ve thought that chatting over a cup of coffee could lead to such a fun and fulfilling date? New York never ceases to surprise me with its endless possibilities for romance.
The historic charm of Boston is casting its spell on our First Rounds On Me daters, and the numbers don’t lie—11 fantastic dates and counting! Love is truly in the air as this city becomes a rising star in our dating scene. Leading the charge is the delightful Roxanne’s ( a FROME favourite ), capturing hearts with its warm and inviting ambiance. With a unique blend of sophistication and coziness that makes it a perfect setting for building connections that stand the test of time, this hidden gem has witnessed 4 enchanting dates this week alone. But that’s not all, because right behind Roxanne’s, we have ( for the second time today ) Barcelona Wine Bar, forever proving that love and great wine go hand in hand. The relaxed atmosphere creates an environment where connections can flourish and love can blossom. Clearly, as this romantic haven has hosted 2 captivating dates this week.
Philadelphia showed its dating prowess with a total of 6 remarkable dates this week, proving that love is very much alive and thriving in the heart of the city. Among the standout venues, Morgan’s Pier stole the show, setting the stage for 3 of those unforgettable dates. With its scenic waterfront views, lively atmosphere, and delicious cuisine, this place creates the perfect setting for romantic connections to blossom. And as for the sunny and star-studded streets of Los Angeles, they’ve had a slower week in the dating department with only 3 dates (come on, LA, let’s step it up!). However, we’re confident that more exciting connections are just around the corner. And Gran Blanco emerging as the hotspot for our LA Fromie’s this week proves it. Known for its trendy ambiance, mouthwatering cuisine, and carefully crafted cocktails, this Aussie place provides the perfect setting for an intimate and stylish date night. This charming and inviting venue hosted most of the week’s dates, proving that when it comes to love, LA knows how to pick a great spot.
