With June comes warm weather and sunshine filled days which is usually a clear sign that you’re favorite season is here: Summer. Now the streets are filled with girls in crop tops and short shorts, while any green space or beach is now covered with babes in bikinis. It’s truly the most magical time of year.

Not only is summer the ultimate ogling time, but it’s also the best season for you to get a little romance going. So in order to start summer off on the right romantic foot, head over to Tria Fitler Square for your first date with that new fling.

Tria Fitler Square is the newest addition to the Tria Café family, and it’s certainly the best one because instead of just serving sandwiches, they serve actual entrees too, which is great for that whole date thing. Plus it’s located right in Fitler Square, which means not only is the setting pretty romantic for you there Romeo, but you’ll also be able to see and hear everything going on in the park, making it the perfect people watching place. What makes for better awkward small talk than watching a dude train for a marathon while juggling?

Anyway, while you chat the night away and gaze into each other’s eyes, you’ll get to enjoy scrumptious snacks like Truffled Egg Toast with Fontina Fontal, and Apple Tree Goat Cheese with Basic Pesto Bruschetta, before some amazing main plates like Braised Beef Short Rib with Potato Gnocchi, Burrata Cheese and Onion Angrodolce. Seriously could it sound any more tempting? And to answer our own question, yes it could because we haven’t even gotten to the dessert part yet.

Yep, after you fill your belly to the brim with short ribs, cavatelli and octopus, you get to dine on decadent desserts like Flourless Chocolate Torta with Blackberries, Espresso Custard, Coffee Crumb and Saba, Semonlina Cake with White Chocolate Mousse and Rhubarb Moscato Sauce, and Cheesecake with Glazed Blueberries, Amaretti Streusel and Sangaree Wine Syrup. Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my chin.

So head over to Tria Fitler Square for all of your dates this summer, especially if you’re looking to impress; just don’t line them all up back to back bro, you know that’s just a recipe for disaster.
