I just had an amazing lunch at Empire State South and thought “What a great place for a date!”
Great food, good atmosphere and…
Bocce ball! (Click for directions on how to play.) I can’t wait to go back and try one of their crafted cocktails (work always gets in the way of the fun).
I think games are such a great way to break the ice and help minimize those moments of silence that we all want to avoid.
And while we are on the subject there are other great restaurants/date spots that have games as well. Try The Optimist for putt-putt and Ormsby for darts, shuffleboard, and bocce ball, both are on the West Side.
