Valentine Dinner in New York

When you meet your mate, don’t let her(him) get away. (Your creative juices will flow forever). Having a mate who understands and contributes mightily to your ethos of life and work is a blessing beyond measure.”
-George Lois’ book “Damn Good Advice”

Our Valentine’s night was more than I could ask for. My wonderful fiancĂ© by my side and I am so appreciative of all the efforts he put into arranging it so beautifully.

With the help of George Lois, America’s number one Advertising communicator, he got us reservations at Loi Restaurant on the Upper West Side of Manhattan serving Greek Food.

I would say you’ve got to have Greek food in New York because being a melting pot to many immigrants, New York offers the most authentic food one can ask for.

Known as the “Greek Martha Stewart”, Chef Maria Loi welcomed us with Greek hospitality and I am so impressed with how excellent the food was. And I’m not easily impressed. I worked for years at Five Star and Boutique hotels, I know exactly what good food is.

They served a four course Valentine’s dinner. With each dish that arrived, it got better and better. There was an element of surprise in it, too: Under layers of my salad, I found sweet figs that finishes my meal with satisfaction hard to describe. My dinner accompanied by Greek Cabernet Sauvignon that is smooth, full bodied and rich in taste.

We ended the night with a long big hug under the Manhattan sky agreeing that it will be a night we’ll remember for the rest of our lives.

Happy Valentine’s Day
