In Southern California, there are many different ways to have a romantic night
out, until you realize there are some occupational hazards -- high parking
fees, no-parking zones, surly valet people, dress codes, waiting lists and
the occasional waiter who really wants to direct. There is also the romance
of eating in, without the commute or distractions. However, many of even the
biggest foodies among are armchair travelers in the Food Network universe,
and deep down, we know Trader Joe's (as much as we love it) still may leave
a little something to be desired in the romance department.
