Dining at fancy restaurants can impress a date, especially when you can recite the night’s specials in iambic pentameter or fold napkins into the shape of Steven Spielberg's beard. Re-create the magic of five-star table settings in your living room with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a catered romantic dinner for two from Dining Delicacies (a $150 value). The meal includes an appetizer, a salad course, entree, and dessert. Home delivery, service, and cleanup are also included.
Dining Delicacies delivers fully prepared, exquisitely presented cuisine directly to your home. Meals can be customized to fit any special occasion, dietary preference, or stage in the lunar cycle. A sample menu could include an appetizer of pan-seared lemon-crème scallops with a main course of savory lamb flank rolled in a sherry-garlic-mushroom medley and topped with a port-reduction crème sauce. Or you could court luxury with an entree starring filet mignon medallions braised in a port-wine-and-cherry sauce and sidekicked with three-cheese bacon mashed potatoes and baby carrots. Each meal ends with a dessert delicious enough to make your loved one forget about the time you accidentally glued the parakeet to the coffee table.
Dining Delicacies prepares its fine platters to order using fresh local and organic ingredients, and expert gourmands personally select all meats. Call at least two weeks in advance to give the chefs enough time to craft a tiramisu that can see into the future.
