My Valentine's Day Plan

I got it. I'm going to order lobsters from Maine Lobster Direct. We got married up in Blue Hill, Maine, so lobster is romance to us. We actually did this last year but traditions are good for relationships.
We'll go for The Captain's Feast
It includes:
1 Medium Lobster per person (avg. weight 1.35 lbs)
1/4 lb. JUMBO Shrimp with Cocktail Sauce
8 oz. of Clam Chowder or Lobster Bisque
"Jewell Island" Cheesecake
Maine sea salt, Metal shell cracker and seafood forks, Bibs, Wetnaps, Gift Message and Cooking Directory.

The lobster is terrific too--it's superfresh and they send you seaweed and sea salt for the water. And bibs. We had a lot of fun cooking it up, much better than eating out, amateur night anyway out there. I'll stop into Whole Foods in Union Square on the way home and pick up some oysters as well and to Trader Joe's for a bottle of Cava. Feel free to steal this idea. You won't regret it.
