Jeffery Johnson had a whole date weekend planned for his wife Candace Johnson - complete with dinners, concerts and reservations in a nice hotel - but their plans were left in tatters when coronavirus hit as the world was told to self isolate.
But that wasn't going to stop Jeffery, from Minneapolis, Minnesota, from wooing his wife. Instead, he hatched a plan to bring the restaurant to them.
Jeffery, a self-taught chef, began by telling Candace he was popping to the shop to buy loo roll, but instead he headed to his nearest supermarket to see what was left to create a menu with.
One he got the ingredients, he typed up a menu and Quarantine Grill was born. Ingenious.
"The morning of my planned date night I went and got her fave coffee drink and flowers," Jeffery tells Tyla. "Later, I got her fave adult beverage and I told her to close her eyes and put the menu I printed on the kitchen table."
Jefferey then told his wife to open her eyes, and her reaction was everything he'd hoped for.
"She saw the menu and got so happy and was filled with joy," he said. "I told her date night isn't cancelled, it's just altered, we are having it here and this is the menu."
Jeffery then told his wife to be ready at 7pm, and per his instructions, Candace was all dressed up and ready on time to enjoy their meal, made up of dishes such as cajun-stuffed salmon, garlic herb mash potato and strawberry cheesecake.
"We watched a movie and had a full date night during this time - it was only right I called the restaurant Quarantine Grill," Jeffery said.
