Restaurant reservation website OpenTable and dating website Bumble teamed up to post a list of the ‘100 Best Restaurants for a Date in America in 2021.’ Locust Point’s Limoncello and South Baltimore’s Papi Cuisine made the list, and were the only two restaurants from Baltimore City selected.

The list said selections were “voted by OpenTable diners.”

Limoncello, which serves Amalfi Coast-style Italian in the Anthem House building, and Papi Cuisine, which serves Afro-Latin fusion in the 2 East Wells building, both have 4.5-star ratings on OpenTable after receiving hundreds of reviews.

Both restaurants are relative newcomers to South Baltimore as Limoncello opened in 2019 and Papi Cuisine opened in 2020.

Limoncello also has a location in St. Michael’s. Papi Cuisine opened in South Baltimore after relocating from Fells Point.
