On the afternoon of 14 February or earlier if it’s more convenient, give yourself and your beloved a little treat, something out of the ordinary, a tiny taste that will make a huge impression: Come to the Café Vienna on the Athenaeum InterContinental’s ground floor, make yourselves comfortable and order the red fruit gelatine dessert with Champagne foam, or pink velvet raspberry biscuits with cream cheese and berries, or a brownie with salted caramel, caramelised pecans and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Let the flavours take your taste buds to new heights and let the conversation drift pleasantly along, to plans without deadlines and dreams without obligations.
In the evening of 14 February climb to the stars at Première on the Athenaeum InterContinental’s terrace, sit close to one another to gaze at the Acropolis and set off on a journey of gastronomic delights with a celery root velouté soup with green apple and scallops, followed by roasted crayfish, filleted sea bass or beef fillet with mashed potatoes and sweet Port wine. Allow the flavours to flow over the palate as you relax and enjoy. For dessert, give in to the temptation of chocolate and passion fruit and remember that moments of pleasure are intervals in life that we should enjoy uniquely each time they occur.
