If your partner is also your roommate, who eventually becomes a full-time employee, occasionally making a cameo in the background of your video calls (in pajama bottoms and little else), maybe it is time to think about inventive ways to recreate the magic creating the honeymoon phase at home.
Since the IRL six-course tasting menu at Vespertine is probably off the table this year (unless you take advantage of the brilliant take-out experience, of course), we have something just as special – and yet perfectly suited to the time.
They say that the way to a person’s heart is through the stomach. (Whoever “they” are, clearly tasted Cacelin O’Maley’s Pesce all’Acqua Pazza from Food Director.) Complement a candlelit dinner à deux with a wonderful glass of French Burgundy, something elaborate in the oven (GPs duck cassoulett = kiss of the chef)) and a chic, flirtatious top that naturally illuminates your cleavage.
Swingy floral dress. Backgammon game. Ham-butter and ham baguettes lay on a checkered tablecloth. All that is missing in this romantic trope is a romp through a field of wildflowers.
MAKE YOURSELF COMFORTABLE
Go the same page with something steamy on-demand (Love by Gaspar Noé: Prelude to Yourself) and make sure your fancy dress is ready. So when it’s time to break the date night box, you’re ready.
