Biloxi named most romantic city in America
If you celebrated Valentine’s Day in Biloxi, you can now say you have celebrated your love in the most romantic city in America as of 2018.
OpenTable, an online restaurant-reservation service company, named Biloxi number one in their ’25 Most Romantic Cities in America List.’ The list was calculated based on the percentage of restaurants rated ‘romantic’ according to OpenTable dinner reviews, the percentage of tables seated for two, and the percentage of people who dined out for Valentine’s Day in 2017.
News 25 spoke to Andrea Osman, a part-owner and manager at Mary Mahoney’s, who tells us how she feels about this recognition. “It’s a wonderful honor and the city definitely deserves it. We are very proud and we feel like we’ve done our part in this community with the ambiance of our restaurant. Can’t tell you how many people, every night, it’s someone celebrating their anniversary, just a couple of months ago, I had a couple in here that was celebrating their 50th anniversary and the husband had actually proposed to his wife here at the restaurant 50 years ago.”
Baton Rouge, Louisiana was also amongst the top 25 romantic cities, coming in at number six.
