Our Favorite Date Night To-Go Dinner Deals for Two

Date nights may look a little different lately but are more important than ever to bring you and your partner closer together. Making recipes at home is an awesome way to connect, but takeout is also great for those days that time doesn’t allow for cooking. To level up your usual takeout and make it feel even more like a special occasion, several Orlando restaurants have introduced to-go dinner deals. These specials are mostly geared for 2 and include everything from tapas and prime rib, to Greek and French cuisine.

Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse

Any time I mention going to a Brazilian steakhouse, my husband has already picked up the keys and made his way to the car. Now, you can have that same experience at home thanks to Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse. Their date night grilling experience serves two and will cost you $125. However, the amount of food you’ll be getting is well worth the price tag. Not to mention how much fun you’ll have preparing and grilling up your food together!

Pick your choice of two between Boneless Ribeye, Filet Mignon 8oz steak, or Atlantic Salmon. You’ll also get potatoes for mashing (1lb with butter and cream), and ready to serve items such as Pão de Queijo, Mozzarella Caprese, Chocolate Brigadeiro (1 slice), New York style Cheesecake (1 slice), and your choice of any Fogo Tribute Wine.

Additionally, each experience comes with a Stölzle crystal Generous Pour wine glass per entree and a take-home guide, which grants access to private short films starring Dave Phinney and filmed exclusively in celebration of the 2020 Generous Pour. 

For another takeout option, The Capital Grille will also be offering Steak Grille boxes from The Capital Butcher, their online marketplace for dry-aged, uncooked steaks. In your box, you’ll get four uncooked steaks, along with The Capital Grille’s signature steak sauce and seasoning. You can select from Bone-in Dry Aged New York Strip, Bone-in Prime Ribeye, or a combination of the two. Add mashed potatoes or lobster mac n’ cheese to complete your feast!
