A romantic dinner by a roaring fire is best enjoyed in a restaurant and not around the neighbor's emblazoned wicker man. Retain your amorous appetite with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale dinner fare at Zee's Grill, located in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Chef de Cuisine Jamie Smith's whimsical menu unlocks locally sourced and seasonally inspired recipes to please taste buds while the eyes feast upon Zee's Grill's stunning dining room. Make up for missed marriage-proposal opportunities by placing a demure Woolrich goat-cheese parcel, with heirloom tomatoes, a basil parcel, local greens, and ver jus dressing, into your beloved's eager maw ($10). The pan-seared diver scallops puttanesca invites handmade tagliatelle pasta, capers, olives, and heirloom tomatoes to its house for dinner and then attempts to frame each fresh ingredient for murder ($32). Herbivores are kept entertained by the vegetarian tasting platter, which hawks three sides from any of the associated entrees, including fresh garden-pea cassoulet, truffle-potato hash, or hazelnut-goat-cheese soufflé ($24).
Lounge long enough to partake in one of Zee's many lush desserts, imbibe in a spanish coffee, or sip a 2-ounce port as Zee's spectacular dining room and patio wrap their stupendous arms around you and bestow a braided friendship bracelet.
- The atmosphere was very relaxing which made the meal that much more enjoyable. The food, the service, the wine were all excellent. – blucrackers, TripAdvisor
- We tried it with another couple and both found the food to be excellent, was served hot, nicely presented and not your 'run of the mill' fare. – OpenTable reviewer who dined on 30/10/2010
