A Romantic Dinner for Two...

From the land

A vegetarian option.  A starter omelet, filled with onions, potatoes, and saffron egg custard starts the meal.  Soup follows, a savory blend of peas, beans, and artichokes. The entrée featrues deliciously caramelized eggplant topped and roasted bell pepper, onion, tomato ragout and feta. A beet and tamarind salad from Syria nestles between the entree and the dessert crumble.

A simple cheese and fruit offering starts the meal.  The soup blends the sweet and lightly bitter tastes of chard, kale, and spinach. The herbs and nuttiness of the rice pilaf enhance the bold flavors of mushrooms and Marsala in the main course in this Italian classic. Dessert is as unflinching-a rich slice of cheesecake with berries.

surf & turf

Land meets Ocean.  Almost.  While surf & turf usually pair the two in the entrée, this menu splits them across courses. A corn chowder, reminiscent of seafood chowders and corn-fed beef bridges the lobster sliders and shortribs.  A seasonal apple pie from Julian rounds out the meal.

A dinner straight from the steakhouse with 20+ oz Porterhouse steak for two.  A simple cheese board starts the meal, followed by a seasonal cream soup. The entrée showcases a steak for two served on a platter to share. An old-school favorite salad follows, leading to a classic crumble for dessert.

An intimate dinner is an inviting, blank screen upon which to project the shared, private story of two people.  In a restaurant, it evokes the thrill of a private experience unfolding against the backdrop and timing of a public tableau. At home, the story slows and the everyday recedes. The intimate dinner becomes one of your own timing and location. You move from course to course when you’re ready, eating perhaps on an impromptu table in the bedroom or in the kitchen itself. Couch Potatoes is proud to offer these fun and romantic dinners for two.
