A date in hip and beautiful BGC is a no-brainer, easy pleaser. It’s the place to be, especially when you’re looking for the perfect weave of urban life and natural scenery. It doesn’t hurt either that tons of fresh, new culinary concepts sprout around here on the regular. But, let’s face it—for the average yuppie, the most popular BGC restaurants and bars will leave your pocket holding just a little more than parking fee.

Still have toll and gas to worry about? Okay, start praying. Or looking for where to dine a little harder.
