If you think about it, Valentine’s Day is all about boxes. Chocolate comes in ‘em. Diamond rings come in ‘em. And, if memories of health class serve us correctly, so do straight guys.
And for many people, a successful February 14 is all about the perfect dinner.
Sure, you could go out and spend upwards of $75 per person to have a nice dinner in a nice restaurant filled with not-so-nice people who have spent their scratch-off winnings for a night on the town. But in this era of staycations and DVD nights, eatZi’s is giving budget-conscious foodies a reason to stay at home.
For just $99.99, you’ll get an entire multi-course meal for two in a convenient box, what we lovingly call a Very Happy Meal. And it even comes with a prize — a split of bubbly.
But save that for dessert.
The meal starts with Tasmanian Smoked Salmon, followed by a refreshing herb salad. Both are perfect for enjoying while your oven is playing host to the main course of “Twice Baked” Lobster and Petit Beef Filets, along with Horseradish Whipped Potatoes and mixed vegetables.
Then the evening ends (or in our book, begins) with Espresso Pots de Crème (a favorite of Michael Phelps, we hear) and a sparkling wine toast.
And for one final touch, a single red rose. Perfect for holding between your teeth as you crawl naked to the bedroom on all fours growling like a tiger.
Funny, that’s the same way we carry documents to the fax machine at the office.
Call ahead or stop in to order for pickup on February 12, 13, 14 or 15
