Having worked for most of my adult life in restaurants – both in the front of house and in the kitchen – I can honestly say – NEVER GOT OUT TO A RESTAURANT ON VALENTINE’S DAY. Most restaurants will force you into a prefix meal where the items have been par cooked earlier that day, you will be charged out the nose and the waiter will be rushing you so he can turn over the table quickly. My advice is to cook at home even if you can’t cook! It shows effort and you can make it a team event. It will create a more intimate evening where you don’t need to compete with a crowded restaurant, it will cost you a quarter of what a restaurant will and you can drink really good wine at a fraction of the cost. So, grab your Slavo Salt and get going! Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
