NYMag.com and HowAboutWe Launch a New Dating Site

Today, NYMag.com is launching a new dating channel in partnership with HowAboutWe.com. Here's how it works: You post the date you want to go on (i.e. "How about we get ice cream at Chelsea Market and walk along the High Line?") and then find someone to go with who shares your interest. And who knows the restaurants, bars, museums, spas, and free activities of the city better than NYMag.com? Just point your browser to nymag.howaboutwe.com, peruse your dating options, and find the kinds of people who like to do what you like to do, in the greatest city in the world. We're back in the love business!

To kick off the partnership, HowAboutWe let us in on a little secret: the top ten restaurants and bars that are picked as potential romantic locations by their users. The list might surprise you. Are these your top ten first-date spots?
