Meat is sexy. No, not THAT type of meat. I’m talking ribs, charcuterie, sausage, tender cuts of beef. We’re talking all kinds of meat, not just steaks. And Cured is where we go for a sexy, meaty time. The location is gorgeous—exposed brick and soft white lighting. Lovers can start with a drink at the bar and then dine side-by-side at the chef’s table overlooking the kitchen. Even the food is made for pairs, for instance, the cabrito sliders come two to an order, nestled lovingly in a cast iron dish. No need to freshen yourself at home either—the bathrooms at Cured have perfume, hairspray and cologne. So meat up and get to boot knockin’.
