Dinner with a view at Friday's | Valentine’s Day

What’s more romantic than a Saturday night dinner date by the waterfront? A waterfront romantic feast inspired by Italian and Sicilian cuisine with matching Italian wines and beers, of course. Friday’s by the river are offering up a two-course feast for you and your dearest to get excited over, so if you don’t have plans yet, you might just be tempted to make some. Start your night of wining and dining with a glass of Prosseco or a Peroni while you work up an appetite to indulge in an entrée of fresh local beetroot risotto with truffle oil and shaved manchego, or crispy pancetta panzanella salad with love croutons (ooh, saucy). Friday’s have a selection of four mains to choose from, so you can order two different plates and enjoy the flirtation of sampling each others linguini al grachio with sandcrab, chilli, parsley and lemon zest, or roasted lamb shoulder stuffed with olives and raisins with ratatouille. All this and a spectacular view? It’s enough to make you fall in love all over again. Friday’s are offering up this delicious two course menu for only $60 per person or $85 with matching Italian wine and beers, so you’ll still have plenty of dosh left over for a box of chocolates to really seal the deal. Head to Friday’s website for more information or to go right ahead and book yourself a table. Words by Lucille Burkitt
