The Valentine’s Day four-course menu this Friday at popular Manhattan restaurant LuLu & Me is inspired by Venus (the Goddess of Love) and the 36-year partnership of the restaurant’s owners. Chef Karen Fohrhatz Miele and her husband/manager Michael Miele will help anyone zing a lover’s heart for just $55 per person at their establishment at 253 Fifth Avenue near 28th Street.

“The love of great food and drink is often the recipe to bring lovers together,” said the Mieles, who opened the eclectic new world restaurant just two years ago. “Venus will be smiling as you’re dining on the menu which includes such romance-inspiring ingredients as raspberries, vanilla, pine nuts, salmon, avocado, pomegranate, lemon, arugula, ginger, chili peppers and chocolate.”

A Dinner For Lovers

The specially created LuLu & Me Valentine’s Day dinner menu includes a variety of choices and flavors.

  • Course One: Sparkling wine toast – glass of Prosecco with three-cheese and pine nut shortbread.
  • Course Two: Appetizer choice of fresh Maine lobster (frisee, arugula, avocado salad) or fettuccine (porcini and shiitake mushrooms).
