First Date? Where To Take Your Prospective Bae {Based On Your Mood}

    So you just met your perfect date {maybe on Truly Madly}. You like each other, decide to meet, but can’t figure where to go. While we cannot make you fall in love with each other, we can at least ensure that you fall in love with the place you choose for the date.

    From a pricey seven-course meal in a private dining room to a pocket-friendly, caffeinated encounter in a tiny cafe, we’ve narrowed down the sweetest first date spots in the capital for you.

    In The Mood For: A Perfect Combination Of Drinks And Food

    Where: Fio Country Kitchen & Bar

    Let’s just start with one inarguable fact: Wine is an aphrodisiac, which makes Fio Country & Bar, given their assorted collection of spirits, perfect for a date. Pass that awkward ‘getting to know each other’ phase over some Toscana Grilled Fish, Fig Glazed Pork Chops, Stone Grilled Tiger Prawns and Warm Apple Crumble.

    California Pizza Kitchen

    California Pizza Kitchen

    DLF Cyber City, Gurgaon

    Where: California Pizza Kitchen

    For a super fun pizza date, head to the lively California Pizza Kitchen at Cyber Hub, Gurgaon. With sufficient private corners and intimate seating, they make sure your conversations aren’t affected by other people. Perfect for a no-frills lunch date, or even a romantic dinner, this place has an impressive menu of appetisers, sandwiches and {of course} pizzas, along with a varied range of drinks.

    A word of advice; if your date does not like pizza, walk away. You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life.
