The Perfect Couple

by jfuller | DC magazine | February 7, 2011

Jack and Jackie. Michelle and Barack. Brad and Angelina. DC loves its power couples, not to mention power-dining. On Feb. 14, we can add power-shopping to the list and in one reservation tackle all three. Michael Mina’s BOURBON STEAK is pairing up with another Four Seasons favorite, M29 LIFESTYLE boutique, to offer a turnkey Valentine’s Day evening. You haven’t bought a gift yet? No matter. When you dial up your dinner reservation, you’ll name the price ($50, $100 or $200) for a present that reflects your level of commitment, such as Only Hearts lace tanks and bottoms, Soixante Neuf’s heart-shaped necklaces, or Calypso’s candles and perfumes, and the personal shoppers of M29 will deliver a nifty gift tableside. Once the oohs and aahs subside, Mina’s swoon-worthy five courses of fare (think Maine lobster risotto, Chateaubriand and warm milk chocolate fondant) will satisfy all your senses. Don’t worry, the secret of how you pulled it all off is safe with us.
