A romantic dinner can encourage flirtatious conversation, create shared taste-based memories, and expose a partner's deep-seated fear of salad forks. Take relationships to the next culinary level with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of dinner fare at Lulav, located in the Mathis Building on West Sixth Street. Dinner is served nightly from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Lulav pairs an amorous ambience with a rotating menu of Mediterranean-inspired California cuisine. Past appetizing show-starters have included the Lulav signature crab cake, bursting with classified spices and herbs ($13), and the mussels arrabbiata, which flex their savory selves in a tomato-and-chorizo reduction ($13). Pasta offerings include the pasta sicilia, which ropes in taste buds with oven-roasted chicken, roma tomatoes, and leeks lassoed by traditional noodles ($14). The pan-cooked pompeii lamb ($36 for a half-rack; $49 for a full rack) tempts retired shepherds back into service with tasty coatings of dijon mustard and pecans in a mint demi-glace, accompanied by flocks of rosemary hash browns and fava beans. Desserts such as The Italian Princess, a Frangelico-infused chocolate torte with Godiva mint-chantilly cream ($8), make average sweet teeth feel like royalty and queenly molars feel like dental emperors.
