“Gourmet Tray” is a food enthusiast and blogger who takes pride in finding the best places to eat and dine out in and around the city of Houston. This week, G.T. shares the best places to meet singles during COVID.

If you are looking for a spot to meet up with your girls and take in the scenery, then Bloom & Bee is the best place! The restaurant is located at the Post Oak Hotel and the decor is absolutely beautiful, which makes it perfect for Sunday brunch on the patio surrounded by the beautiful garden.

Another great brunch spot is Toulouse in River Oaks. The French-inspired decor has become a selfie hub for women, and we all know where the girls are — the boys will go! The food is a wide variety of seafood and French comfort food and the staff is very strict when it comes to COVID-safety protocols, requiring all guests to wear masks and adhere to temperature checks.

If you are looking for something a little more casual, don’t worry. Gourmet Tray left no stone unturned. HER Hooka Lounge is great for a girls, guys and LGBTQIA night out. The lounge is decorated like a selfie pop-up and has become a favorite of young influencers looking to socialize, enjoy delicious cocktails and hookah.
