Prom season may have come and gone. For some, just a month or two ago. For others, a decade, or two, or maybe three (or so), in the rearview mirror. For those of you still carrying emotional baggage because the date didn’t go quite as planned, or perhaps didn’t go at all, we have a suggestion. At least for folks lucky enough to live near a Public School restaurant location, that is. Why do we say this? We say this because Public School is one of the country’s restaurants most likely to lead to a second date. This according to the experts at Hinge. So for example, if you live in Atlanta, consider Public School 404 as a remedy for your prom-induced dating anxiety.
Located in the heart of Midtown, Public School 404 is a chef-driven gastropub serving exclusively craft beer and delivering an education in the art of food and beer. Public School uses only the freshest quality ingredients, sourced from local farmers markets whenever possible. And the spot has games and activities to entertain guests; think darts, giant Jenga, and giant Connect 4.
The eclectic, seasonal menu includes favorites such as the PB&J Burger, Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese Salad, and the infamous Bacon Cheddar Tots. “Recess” (aka Happy Hour) is held Monday-through-Friday, and boasts items such as Ahi Tuna Poke, Crispy Naked Wings, and Crispy Buffalo Cauliflower. And the bar features a vast selection of seasonal, artisanal cocktails and sommelier-selected wines.
And of course, you needn’t limit your Public School experience to an intimate date. The spot can accommodate a variety of private events of all shapes and sizes.
One word of caution, however, if you do elect to impress that special someone and you want to keep the good vibes going: Maybe use a fork--not your hands--when digging into that calamari dish.
