While a scenic view adds romance to a meal, it lowers the chances of seeing the shocking alternative ending to Casablanca miraculously appear on a perfectly cooked porterhouse. Tempt the gods of cinema with today's deal: for $30, you get $60 worth of fine fare and drinks at Jayne Marie on Cross Lake. Voted one of Shreveport's most romantic restaurants on Urbanspoon, Jayne Marie sates the appetite of tummies and eyes with contemporary American cuisine in a scenic eatery. Yawning picture windows overlook Cross Lake and provide canoodling couples with an enchanting view. Bust stomachs out of hunger jail by deploying a convoy of four-cheese tortellini ($13) or lobster ravioli concealed in marinara, pesto, or tomato vodka sauce ($24). Heartier fare includes Chilean sea bass in a sake ginger glaze ($30) and USDA Prime hanger steak in a pineapple-soy marinade ($22). Calm needy ears with live entertainment, or enjoy the jangly ice-cube choirs harmoniously clinking in a cocktail from Jayne Marie's full-service bar.
