We know Valentines day has been and gone but why only celebrate you love for each other for one day a year? Find a perfect fancy night out for that someone special, ensuring a romantic rendezvous any time of the year.
Setting the tone for a romantic evening, arrive at Andiamo to a glass of Lanson Champagne. Opt to follow with the half dozen Pacific Oysters for a passionate start to the specially designed three-course menu. With two more delicious Italian inspired dishes to complete date night.
If opposites attract book at Pravda. Heroing the best from both land and sea. Opt for the Glory Bay salmon on seasame soba noodle with kimchi salad or try the 200g Taupo sirloin with cauliflower couscous, pumkin puree, broccoli and
Kahurangi blue cheese sauce. Finish the night on a sweet note with a shared dessert platter – choosing between the cheese or chocolate will be the ultimate relationship test.
For romance in the capital, Shed 5 has a menu designed with the truly devoted in mind. Awaken the senses with an amuse bouche to begin before selecting from the a la carte menu and finishing with a dessert to share
For a truly indulgent date night, treat the better half to a four-course menu at Euro. Feast on burrata with eggplant caviar, pistachio and pomegranate and Taupo beef eye fillet with truffle mash and goat cheese butter amongst other dishes sure to delight. Keep drinks flowing all evening long with bottles of Perrier-Jouët for only $99 before sweetening the deal with a choice of pavlova with lemon curd, strawberries and lemon tonic sorbet or a caramel semifreddo with vanilla ice cream, hazelnut panna cotta and caramel popcorn – neither will disappoint.
If the night isn’t quite over yet, head next door for a post dinner tipple at Coley & Punch!
