National Kissing Day: Three Top Stops for Smooching

In honor of National Kissing Day, here are three top spots to get cosy in NYC:

Boqueria: There is something about sharing food that brings people together. This Soho staple delivers the best in Spanish tapas. Try the Pimientos de PadrĂ³n — Blistered Shishito peppers with coarse sea salt and Gambas al Ajillo Shrimp, garlic and Guindilla pepper in olive oil to get the party started. And let's face it, a jug of sangria doesn't hurt...

The Boathouse: It's been the backdrop of many a romantic comedy and for good reason. The Boathouse in Central Park is the perfect setting for a smoochy night out. A day trip is actually my favorite way to savor this moment. A glass of wine watching others attempt a romantic sentiment in a dingy is somewhat amusing and definitely a bonding experience. Better yet it is one of the restaurants featured in NY's restaurant week. What are you waiting for?


One of the best happy hours in town, Barbounia features bar seating at it's finest. Whether you want to get cozy with your loved one or are simply happy to socialize, this Mediterranean spot is a bee hive of activity. Catch up over drinks or dine in style, either way it will quickly become a happy smooching memory.
