Get Ur Valentine’s Dinner via En Route and Spend some QT with Ur Cutie

10 Feb
It’s almost Valentine’s Day and you’re in a bind. See, you can’t cook for crap or even know how to boil water properly, but you still want to serve up a killer meal for your sweet lil’ Valentine. Order Chinese or pizza delivery? Umm, no, not on 2/14.  Instead, why not check out some meals prepared by En Route of Amanda Smith Caterers, based out of Darien? They are offering up three meal choices for two that feature foods and ingredients that are known to be aphrodisiacs and will get you all hot and bothered. Just place your order by ordering here or calling them at (203) 202 7669 then picking up your meals at 1480 Post Road either on 2/13 from 3-7 or 2/14 from 10-1. Get your choices in, though, because orders need to be placed by this Friday, 2/13 at 3 pm.

Now, look at these sexy meal options:

DECADENT: $78

Lobster Niçoise – steamed lobster tossed with fingerling potatoes, haricots verts, fennel and champagne vinaigrette
Beef Wellington – seared filet covered in mushroom duxelles with foie gras and wrapped in puff pastry, served with wild rice medley and bordelaise sauce
Death by Chocolate – nothing but chocolate in this flourless cake with luscious cherry coulis


HOT:  $76 

Shrimp al Ajillo – wild shrimp sautéed with crispy garlic & piquillo peppers
Mole – pomegranate marinated loin of pork with 3 chili chocolate mole sauce and jasmine rice (or chicken)
Ginger Pear Tatin – upside down pear tart with spicy candied ginger


SULTRY: $74

Napoleon – roasted beet, caramelized fennel & warm goat cheese with chocolate red wine reduction
Chicken & Roses – rose petal walnut sauce over organic free range chicken breast with mashed potatoes and haricots verts
Chocolate Mousse – the classic with chocolate covered pomegranate seeds

All of the above meals are for two and feature carefully sourced and local ingredients. And, if you dig picking up your meals and being able to easily reheat them, then you’ll want to check out their regular En Route service. Each Sunday they post up and send out their weekly dinner specials. From there you can order, pick up at the store or even arrange for home delivery.
