Romance! Plan The Perfect Candlelit Dinner
Memphis’s award-winning Restaurant Iris serves incredible French-Creole cuisine in a modern, intimate setting. Their menu changes frequently to highlight seasonal ingredients, but features boldly flavored dishes, like Seared Moulard Breast with Death Valley Shrimp & Duck Jambalaya or American Kobe Short Rib with Roasted Poblano Grits & Charred Tomatillo Salsa.
Romance factor: As its name states, this sky-high restaurant, which rests on the 21st floor of The Ritz Hotel in Sea Point, actually turns on its axis (one revolution every one hour and 15 minutes), so sweethearts can dine while taking in 360° views of the city and her peaks and waters from way up above the ground. Needless to say, this one-of-a-kind venue will make duos feel like they’re on top of the world, in much the same way as their love does.
Rent a luxurious car, maybe one with a convertible top, and plan a route that has beautiful views. During the fall, you can take a ride to see the colors of the changing leaves. In the winter, you can drive to see snowcapped mountains. In the spring, you can visit meadows of wildflowers or botanical gardens, and in the summer months, take a cruise along the beach front.
Romance factor: This long-time Kloof Street restaurant may be most famous for its vibey Tuesday live jazz and deep house nights, but unbeknownst to many, it also makes for a mean date night spot. Drawing on the whole of The Orient for inspiration, the decor whisks visitors on a sensual journey east to the exotic lands of India and Thailand. Warm lighting, flickering candlelight, plush couches that wouldn’t be out of a place in an Ottoman palace, sexy music to round off the inviting ambience, and food made for sharing completes the big picture. Not to mention, there’s a massive cocktail list, much to the delight of those who need a little social lubricant to get the good vibes flowing.
It’s a special occasion and you want to impress the love of your life with the ultimate dinner for two that is romantic and sexy. First, plan the menu. As you plan, think of sexy foods that you both enjoy. Start with an appetizer that will knock his socks off. Caviar served on lightly toasted triangles. Remember to keep the caviar chilled and the tin on a bed of ice for caviar at its best. Caviar contains zinc, which gives male testosterone a boost.
This roasted leg is quite delicious. It is also very easy to prepare. You do not have to stress yourself out with complicated recipes when you can always serve this dish for the main course. The meat is aromatic with the scent of garlic, mint, and a lot of other simple spices. It is packed with flavors and unique taste. The recipe calls for coriander seed which gives the dish a nutty, woody and earthy scent and flavor. Garnish it with cilantro or parsley.
GQ recommends you order the beautiful truffle infused hand rolled pappardelle as a starter – don’t worry, with minimal sauce, it’s light and delicate enough to be starter appropriate (£21.90). Pair it with a glass of champagne or a glass of Malagousia, 2014. For mains, GQ shared the Wagyu Beef for two (£39.50 pp), for the ultimate romantic experience and killer flavour. The beef comes with crispy duck fat chips, firm tenderstem broccoli and béarnaise sauce and is perfectly paired with a glass of Pinot Gris, Alsace. Although the beef may sound heavy, shared between two it leaves just enough room for pudding. Thank god.
