There’s no pretending that a way to a TGIFguide girl’s heart isn’t through her stomach! We LOVE delicious food, treats and of course, wine. For Valentine’s Day though, we’re always hoping for something a little more special than a been there done that steak dinner. That’s why we were totally stoked to learn about how Los Angeles based Chef and Aphrodisiac Expert, Jeff Torin, is offering something LA has never seen before – an aphrodisiac pop-up restaurant for Valentine’s Day.


 Don’t wait for your man to plan something special, why not surprise him with 17 courses of aphrodisiac tasting designed to heighten the senses… and… your performance. We think we’re in love 🙂

PDA Aphrodisiac will be taking over Lucy’s 51 in Toluca Lake and transforming into the most romantic, tantalizing dining experience LA has ever seen. This aphrodisiac culinary experience is comprised of a 17-course tasting menu designed to enhance your performance and heighten the senses.

Taste of Romance Valentine's Day

The first question that likely comes to mind is, “What makes this an aphrodisiac?” Chef Torin explains, “Each dish includes often overlooked or underestimated ingredients that have been found to contain a variety of sexual performance enhancing properties that produce increased blood flow, heightened nerve ending sensitivity, improved stamina, intensified pheromones, and/or increase sexual appetite. While ingredients such as figs push higher levels of O2 into the blood, and spicy chilies use capsaicin to increase nerve ending sensitivity, others stimulate the senses through smells and taste like licorice, fresh herbs, and vanilla. By combining the sciences of biology, psychology, and nutrition, we can create a delicious culinary outlet to assist in sexual well-being and performance.”

There is only one 7pm seating time left at this one-night affair!!  

Chef Torin encourages foodies to book their reservations in advance.

See you Friday lovers!!
