the sweltering heat of the summer months sets the best tone for seduction. whether it be a new or steady romance, a jaunt to the popular lower eastside haunt, les enfants terribles, can only help kindle love’s frolicking flames.
the modern french restaurant is definitely not an ideal setting for amical anecdotes, with tables in close quarters and exotic, sensual moroccan and brazilian decor. the animal prints, dark woods, lit candles and small tables would definitely send the wrong message to someone who was there under pretenses of friendship.
start by whetting your appetite with the goat song refrain and the camarao grelhado. then, let sparks fly over dishes like the zanzibar pistachio-crusted salmon, les enfants terribles savory couscous and ghanian salad. experience a culinary culmination with delectable desserts such as ouled kbah chocoalte mousse and afro coconut soup.
then go home and behave like les enfants terribles with your partner in crime...
