Our Best Date-Night Recipes for Two

Herbert M. Pickett

There are plenty of recipes worthy of a special occasion like a date night at home, but most are designed to serve at least four people. While that’s not always an issue—who doesn’t want a lovely leftover meal for lunch or dinner?—there are some times when a home cook may not want the excess ingredients or food on hand. When that’s the case, these recipes for two are exactly what you need.

This collection of two-serving recipes includes cocktails and appetizers to start the night off, several main courses and exciting side dishes to enjoy them with, and a spectacular dessert for a sweet finish. Start with a sip of our very romantic Pink Gin Martini—its rose-colored hue speaks Valentine’s Day, thanks to the inclusion of cherry kirsch. Looking for a drink that offers a little more kick? Try our recipe for a Habanero-Hibiscus Sour; a sweet simple syrup made with habanero chiles and dried hibiscus flowers creates a bouquet of flavor.

When it comes to the main course, nothing says a special date night dinner like a juicy steak served with roasted vegetables or a crisp salad. We have plenty of recipes including a dressed-up Rib-Eye with Jalapeño Butter, as well as a more classic Flat-Iron Steak au Poivre. Serve either with this next-level Radicchio Salad with Chopped-Lemon Dressing. Finish the meal off with rich and decadent Chocolate-Mousse Parfaits. They’re topped with a lightly sweetened whipped cream and crushed spice cookies (yet another reason to dig in).

Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, Valentine’s Day, or just spending some quality time with your partner, these recipes for two are worthy of romantic dinner any night of the week.
