Hyde and Seek

The bar/lounge area in the Hyde Park Steakhouse on the Cap is the very embodiment of Valentine's Day. I mean, it could have been designed by a team of scholars with PhDs in matchmaking.

It's swanky, curvy, dimly lit, and drenched in rich red tones from carpet to overhead fabric. What's more, this sexy-looking upscale palace is equipped with plush couches, a fireplace and wide, secluded semi-circular "love booths" that'll enable you to easily huddle up next to your cuddly date.

And I haven't even gotten to the coddling, opulent and pampering food yet. Actually I won't rush that, because I suggest you start off with flowers for your paramour. Forgot 'em? No problem. Opt for Hyde's Elderflower Martinis - they're fruity and sweet, but pack in a little love bite of citrus and hooch on the back end.

Next up, it has to be oysters, Casanova's favorite. They really do the bivalves right here - super-fresh, glimmering half shells come embedded in a sea of sparkling, crushed ice cradling all the expected accents and accoutrements.

After those luscious slurps of ocean-kissed delights, it's time for your affair of the heart - the Hearts of Romaine Caesar Salad, that is. It's tossed in a rich and creamy dressing and is accessorized with wonderfully crunchy, garlicky croutons.

Now, I think it's time you play Hyde, the beefsteak. I suppose Hyde's famous Steak Woody would be a good choice here - it's named after the high-scoring OSU coach and comes tricked out with a bunch of bacony add-ons - but, frankly, I'd opt for something less filling that won't weigh you down later on.

So I'm going to recommend you go with the Twin Filets - two beautiful three-and-a-half-ounce slabs of seared and juicy love draped in a silky bearnaise sauce.

Sharing those modest but mighty mouthwatering pieces of meat could send you straight to bed, but they won't put you to sleep.
