Or try the Romano Spinach Dip, served hot with artichoke hearts, cheese and tortilla chips. Also on this classy appetizer menu are Barbeque Prawns, a French Dip Sandwich and Mesquite Chicken Rolls with barbeque sauce and sour cream.

Desserts are just as decadent. There’s Turtle Cheesecake and Lava Cake, but of course, if it’s a date night, you’ll want to get the Chocolate Fondue for Two, served with pound cake and strawberries.
