The Central Market Valentine's Day Dinner for Two package comes with candles and a movie. The movies available aren't all that exciting — there's your choice of A Good Year or Serendipity. For some sexier cinematic suggestions, check out the "Top 10 Food and Sex Scenes in the Movies" post on the Eating...Our Words blog on the Houston Press Web site.

The actual dinner starts with a salad of field greens, poached pears, pecans and goat cheese. Then there are four entrée choices. First there's the grilled beef tenderloin with herbed shrimp for two that we sampled. Then there's also a grilled tenderloin in a mushroom demi-glace for two. Canadian lobster tails with basil butter are $80. Chicken saltimbocca is $60. These all come with the boursin potato soufflé dome, chewy grilled asparagus and brioche rolls. You also get the boring fruit-garnished cheesecakes for dessert. (Consider getting something else, too.)

Eating in on Valentine's Day can be romantic.
