ATLANTA, GA — Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and if you’re still looking for a restaurant to take your loved one to on Feb. 14, a new list from OpenTable can help. The company released its list of 100 of the most romantic restaurants in the country Tuesday and two of those restaurants are right here in Georgia.
The list was compiled using more than 12 million verified reviews submitted by OpenTable diners for over 26,000 restaurants across the country. According to OpenTable, American flavors dominate at these restaurants but Italian and French cuisines are also popular.
North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia had the most number of romantic restaurants on the list, with eight each. OpenTable says their list "features an assortment of intimate restaurants located on charming properties that provide the perfect backdrop for the occasion."
The Georgia restaurants that made the list are:
Babette’s Cafe, Atlanta. Says OpenTable: Dining at Babette’s Café is like stepping into Chef/Owner Marla Adams’ home. She is equally as known for the incredibly creative Rustic French, Spanish and Italian cuisine that she creates, as she is for her welcoming personality. Marla has turned her apron over to Chef Justin Kurtz who has taken the reigns in the kitchen. Together they dig deep into the food history and traditions of Europe and bring them to Atlanta with nuance, respect and artistry.Frog Hollow Tavern, Augusta. Says OpenTable: Chef Sean A. Wight’s vision of an affordable yet stylish dining and social club is born in Frog Hollow Tavern. Located on the 1200 block of Broad Street, the space is a modern "Restaurant meets Bar" where a diverse crowd of people enjoy the company of others paired with a comfortable atmosphere, detailed service, and exquisite affordable cuisine.
