As we mentioned in yesterday’s story
spotlighting Mie N Yu
’s colorful ‘Cupid’s Arrow’ cocktail, 19 of Georgetown’s most popular drinking and dining establishments are partnering this weekend for a playful “Love Potions” promotion, in which $14 buys you and a guest each a special Valentine’s Day cocktail.
Next up on our little romantic neighborhood watch is Wisconsin Avenue’s Paolo's Ristorante
A Georgetown staple since it first opened its doors in 1987, the flagship location of this two-outpost restaurant chain (the second location can be found in Reston, Virginia) has a special treat indeed for couples this weekend!
Billed enigmatically as “dessert in a glass,” Executive Chef Tom Crenshaw
will indulge each guest with a plate of three jumbo strawberries – each injected with a generous shot of Cointreau
, Amaretto or Tia Maria.
The aptly titled ‘Menage a Trois’
cocktail is served complete with chocolate ganache, powdered sugar, and caramel garnishes and can be enjoyed either by itself or as the start to the restaurant’s three-course $55 prix-fixe menu on Valentine’s Day itself.
It’s almost enough to make Paolo’s your second
