Spring, with its abundance of whimsy and wildflowers, is a perfect season for a cute date. Whether you're meeting a new prospect or treating your forever boo, the park should be your first port of call. But don't worry about organising all of the park paraphernalia (rugs, picnics and the like) because Good Food Month has you covered, hosting a pair of events for the lovers amongst you.
Date Nights, running on the 13th and 20th of October, pair gourmet food with classic rom coms. You can expect balmy spring nights in Hyde Park watching either '80s cult-classic When Harry Met Sally on October 13 or The Wedding Singer on October 20.
Food is being provided by Ume Burgers and Gelato Messina. As well as your choice of bevvy, you can choose between the classic Ume Burger (made up of beef pattie, American cheese, mayo, tomato and lettuce), the fish katsu burger (served with tartare sauce, lettuce and cheese), or the kakiage burger (veggie fritter, nori mayo, cabbage and tonkatsu sauce). Of course, a burg wouldn't be complete without fries and they're serving 'em up with their iconic Umami seasoning.
And to polish off a fancy (but fun) evening, chow down on a Messina choc top and a recline in the park with a very contented date on your arm.
