We set up two busy professionals on a blind date in Sunset Harbour. Did sparks fly for these Miami singles? 

The Drinks: Soul Tavern

Elizabeth
“We met at a table and were running a little behind, but it was all good. The place inside was pretty, but we sat at a table outside, which was nice, too. I ordered an old-fashioned really enjoyed it.”

Jason
“I ordered a Don Julio at the bar. I usually drink Scotch, but people always give me shit for being an old man and drinking Scotch. We stayed at the table where she was sitting. We ordered another drink, chatted and then realized we were late and should probably go to dinner.”

The Dinner: La Moderna

Elizabeth
“We seemed to have the same tastes and agreed on a burrata salad and grilled octopus to start. We ordered different pastas (I think his was the carbonara) and tried each other’s—both were good. We were definitely full by the end.”

Jason
“We were both big on the burrata and started with that. She was trying to decide between two pastas—I think one had mushrooms and truffle oil—so I ordered one and she had the other. It was her first time at La Moderna, but I’ve been there before.”

The Verdict

Elizabeth: ♥♥♥
“He was a really nice guy. We got along well, but I couldn’t read him. I couldn’t tell if he was interested in me romantically. I didn’t feel an immediate spark but would hang out with him again.”

Jason: ♥♥♥
“We didn’t exchange information, and I felt kind of bad about that. She lives super far away, and I never really leave the beach, so that seemed like a tough starting point. She was nice, and it was an easygoing night, but I don’t know that we’d go out again.”
