Hungry for the Fifty Shades of Grey film release?

In anticipation of the erotic bestseller’s theatrical debut on February 15, the real-life hotel that’s featured in the book is offering special Fifty Shades-inspired food, drink and vacation packages.

Portland, Oregon’s Heathman Restaurant & Bar — where Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dorman) share many romantic trysts — is giving guests a glimpse into the world of Grey.

Get in the mood for the movie with a dinner for two (grey-tied servers included). On the prix fixe menu: Aphrodisiacs, of course. Pacific oysters, wild salmon and an array of chocolate-y desserts, plus steak frites, bacon wrapped venison and a specialty Fifty Shades cocktail (handcuffs also included). And, an added bonus: Dinner comes with two theater tickets.

And for those who get, um, tied up, the elegant hotel offers a two-night stay complete with a bottle of white wine, Fifty Shades book and grey tie. The packages begin on Valentine’s Day weekend and are offered the following weekends in February.

For those who want to get a jump on the premiere — or want some sipping material as you plow through the steamy trilogy — see below for Heathman Restaurant & Bar’s specialty cocktail.
