-Chef Paul Luna-In Europe, the way people relate is a little different than it is in the states. For example, when two people go out to eat, they get dressed up. They're beginning a seduction. They're not simply "fueling up," they are beginning a dance that may continue through to the morning. A little sprucing up, a different cologne, a backless gown, suggestive conversation, these are the ingredients—ingredients that touch upon every one of the senses—to an experience that all play a role in an evening out. The very act of sharing food is seductive.
Check out this quote from the Cliff Bostock Creative Loafing article where Cliff discusses the similarity between food and erotica... I love everything about Chef Luna, and Lunacy Black Market. Awesome article!
