We all remember when Lady and the Tramp shared that spaghetti noodle together in the candlelit alleyway—and the adorable meatball nudge that preceded. Or when Richard Gere’s character ordered champagne and strawberries to educate Julia Roberts’ character on the art of fine dining in Pretty Woman. Fine dining is often at the core of romantic moments because food is often an expression of love, or at the very least, lust. An elegant ambiance sets the stage for a variety of indulgences, divulgences, and kisses. There’s just something about soft lighting, crisp linens, and gourmet meals that enhances our ability to be sweet with each other. There are of course the aphrodisiacs that can be found in a find dining experience as well: oysters, champagne, truffles, chocolate—just to name a few.
Dr. Meryl Rosofsky, a noted aphrodisiac expert in New York City, says that even the act of eating oysters is seductive since the texture and shape requires that you suck, slurp, and eat them out of your hands. Oysters are high in zinc, which is thought to increase testosterone as well. In the spirit of this month of love, Seek Spot is offering a fine dining experience giveaway at an authentic French bistro in Hawaii, Brasserie Du Vin.
