If you’re in the mood for a romantic meal that appeals to all of your senses, book a table at luxe eatery Patina this Valentine’s Day.
The Michelin-starred restaurant has partnered with French fragrance company L’Artisan Parfumeur for a sensory celebration of romance this Feb. 14.
Executive Chef Charles Olalia will prepare a three-course menu inspired by select scents from the Parisian perfume houses’s Explosions d’Emotion collection; a six-course Valentine’s Day tasting menu will also be available.
Taking a cue from the designer perfume line’s Déliria fragrance, which features notes of toffee and apple, the first course of Nova Scotia Salmon incorporates citrus-cured apple and grain mustard. The second course includes guests’ choice of Atlantic Black Cod, served with carrots and roasted garlic fumet, or the Omaha Beef Tenderloin with smoked potato mousseline and Bordelaise syrup, both of which are inspired by the saffron, whiskey, lavender, and rose bouquet found in L’Artisan’s Skin on Skin.
The Passion Fruit Crémeux with Valrhona chocolate and coconut sorbetisa play on the line’s Amour Nocturne, which features notes of hot milk and caramel. All of these fragrance notes are specially designed to evoke memories of love.
The three-course menu will be available for $80 per person. Guests can also enjoy complimentary fragrance samples, along with a voucher towards a future L’Artisan Parfumeur purchase.
