It depends who you are trying to seduce. My wife - anything chocolate.

this may sound strange to some of y'all, but inviting a young lady over for breakfast and cooking the following:

soft, flaky biscuits & shrimp in a delicate broth with some super smooth, creamy grits.

works every time...

I like finger-type foods. And it doesn't necessarily have to be ACTUAL finger foods. For instance. If you make a salad you can either keep the leaves large and dip in the dressing. You can take romaine leaves and at the sturdier end have a fairly finely chopped Caesar salad, or have a mixture of strawberries, blueberries, red onions, lettuce, in a white wine vinaigrette on the end.

Candles, music, Champagne (or sparkling) certainly don't hurt anything! Sushi wouldn't be bad either! Vietnamese Summer Rolls. These are just more of those finger foods.

Milkii,
For Sunday morning, I find fluffly scrambled eggs with truffles plus Melba toast and smoked salmon canapes, all washed down with a mimosa a nice way to start the day with your significant other.

Oops, I realized now you are asking for a romatic evening.
Please consider my suggestion the menu for next morning if everything goes OK that evening.

kitchenelf,
What is that face suppose to mean? LOL
I had that breakfast treatment in Salzburg but what completely embarrassed because I was the only one in the hotel restaurant with jeans, old navy t-shirt and running shoes.
Everyone else, even my significant other, was wearing a suit and tie or a nice dress.... oops.

lol wysi, from your avatar, salzburg looks pretty steep! next time remember to wear a dress to breakfast, ok?

i'd go with a frenched rack of lamb, haricots verts, and an aromatic wild rice mix.
frenched rib chops are tasty but are also dainty and fun to eat. no sawing away at a hunk of meat, no having to crack a shell or splatter things.
same goes for delicate string beans. and you need a starch, so anything wild sounds good.


then make something decadently chocolatey for dessert. just make sure charlie is working that night.

(just kidding charlie!!! )
