Valentine's Day is two days away, everywhere's booked solid, and the last time you tried cooking a romantic dinner the fire department showed up, and then stole your girlfriend. Fear not, because Thrillist planned ahead and locked down tables at Embeya, where the contemporary Southeast Asian flavors of chef Thai Deng will ensure your relationship stays spicy.
There is a catch. There's only a pair of tables to be had, so the two cats who lay out the best cases as to why they deserve (or at least desperately need) this last-minute assist get them. Sure, you still have to pay for the meal, but that beats burning down your apartment and your relationship.
