A romantic dinner by a roaring fire is best enjoyed in a restaurant and not around the neighbor’s burning wicker man. Retain your amorous appetite with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get an upscale dinner for two at Eileen’s in Summerville (up to a $79 value). The dinner includes:
- One appetizer (up to a $9 value)
- Two entrees (up to a $29 value each)
- Two glasses of house wine (a $6 value each)
Eileen’s head chef and graduate of the Culinary Institute of America Sean Sheehan pilots a foray into epicurean noshes in collaboration with his sister and brother-in-law. The menu muffles overactive maws with one of six appetizers, including pan-seared scallops in a lemon-garlic drizzle. Diners can launch a sneak attack on growling bellies or lazy napkins by bombarding them with a bordelaise-laced new york strip steak with buttermilk mashed potatoes, or a rack of lamb accompanied by prosciutto and mozzarella. Cooks scour gardens for artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes to gussy up the farfalle pasta, which brims with feta and parmesan cheese like a love note from a dairy farmer.
Candlelight illuminates romantic dinners, where glasses of house wine glint in the atmospheric glow and fuel jovial chatter. Mother Nature stars in paintings that colorfully accent a dining room interspersed with white linens, and regretful masonry-school dropouts jealously ogle a rustic brick exterior from the restaurant’s outdoor patio.
