HOUSTON – Impress your Valentine with a romantic meal at home.
Tanji Patton of Goodtaste TV is sharing her favorite local spots for takeout and a tasty pasta recipe that uses an entire bottle of red wine for the sauce.
But first, let’s talk bubbles!
For Valentine’s Day, Tanji recommends Lini Lambrusco Scuro (about $17) and Josh Rosé Prosecco (about $15).
These 3 restaurants offer a great takeout menu for Valentine’s Day.
1. B.B. Italia on Memorial Drive.
For $85 per person, their meal includes Lobster Bisque, Osso Bucco, and Grandma’s Ravioli.
2. The Refuge Steakhouse & Bourbon Bar in The Woodlands.
Dinner for 2 includes Lobster Bisque Filet Oscar and a Chocolate Dome for $140.
3. Étoile in Uptown Park.
They’re featuring a special for $78 per person, that includes an Arugula Salad Seasonal Fruit, Salmon Tartare and a Tenderloin Truffle Mashed.
Date night pasta
If you rather cook at home for Valentine’s Day, Tanji recommends her Pasta with Red Wine Ragù.
The secret to this dish is the sauce, made with an entire bottle of red wine (such as Pinot Noir or Chianti).
