You’ve seen one, you’ve seen... enough to know that they make the best oyster-eating backdrops.
So chart a course for Ocean2000, a ridiculously sleek date spot with briny bivalves and glorious seascapes, now open at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale.
Okay, so it is in Fort Lauderdale. But hey, certain things are worth traveling for. Good barbecue. Springsteen concerts. Open-air terraces that jut out over the Atlantic and impress the hell out of dates.
But before you get to that balcony: dinner. For that, you’ll head toward the circular leather banquette in the back left of the turquoise-lit dining room. That’s the best table for keeping an eye on the shoreline. And for enjoying chipotle-béarnaise-dipped lobster tail.
Then, when it’s time for dessert... well, eat dessert. Don’t skip that. There’s a warm chocolate brownie topped with bourbon ice cream on the menu. But after dessert, yes, that’s when you bring things (in this case, your date and your nightcap) out onto the whitewashed wooden terrace. Hey, look, it’s the ocean. And a sunset. And a sailboat.
Congratulations, you just won at dating.
