In case I’d forgotten that it’s Valentine’s Day on Friday my Inbox is filling up with media releases from restaurants keen to promote their Valentine’s Day menus.
Now I’ve had good Valentine’s Day restaurant dates and one that was an absolute shocker – if you’re crying in the car on the way to the restaurant that’s not a good sign, is it?
Generally, though, a date at a good restaurant can be a very romantic way to spend an evening. There’s no shopping, prepping, cooking or washing up, for starters. Plus you can hold hands across the table, play footies under the table and whisper sweet nothings to each over dessert.
