See also

On Friday, Feb.14, 2014 at Michael's on Main, lovers can begin with two glasses of liquid romance - bubbly laced with strawberries, or choose from an extensive list including local Santa Cruz Mountain wines such as Alfaro Family Vineyards Rose of Pinot and Pinot Noir, Storrs Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Bargetto, Sones Cancion del Mar 2010, Cinnabar and Thomas Fogarty Skyline.

Appetizers to set the mood…choose one

Baked oysters with spinach and bacon

Oysters restore lift to lagging libidos and are brimming with zinc

Half artichoke stuffed with creamy crab dip

Artichokes: increases powers of seduction

Prosciutto wrapped asparagus…go ahead, be naughty. Eat them with your fingers

Asparagus: packed with vitamin E - French lovers dined on it the night before their wedding

Followed by a little culinary foreplay…

Michaels House Salad - Spring greens, cranberries, apples, candied pecans, and blue cheese in a yummy tarragon vinaigrette

And for the main inter-course…

Pine nut crusted salmon topped with a mint Hollandaise sauce

Pine nuts: enhances nesting instinct and increases fertility

Or

Petite filet in a pomegranate sauce

Pomegranates: associated with virility and passion as well as anti-oxidants

Or

Eggplant Napoleon

A non-carnivore option

And then a tiny nibble of succulent apricots soaked in Port and served with Farmstead cheeses

And finally, the cresendo’ing climax

Triple chocolate mousse accompanied by a raspberry coulis

Mysterious Montezuma reportedly drank 50 cups of chocolate each day to better serve his harem of 600 women….

Chocolate contains phenyl ethylamine, the very same molecule that courses through the veins of those in LOVE!

A Valentine’s dinner note: A chocolate dessert can be packaged for enjoyment later in the privacy of your home or hotel room. Please ask your server.

Michael’s on Main Valentine menu will be also served on Saturday Feb.15 to extend the love…
