How Do You Say "Afternoon Delight" in Mandarin?

In my current Mandarin lesson, the recording features a conversation between a man and a woman regarding where they would like to go for lunch. The man asks, "Where would you like to go to eat lunch? To a restaurant?" After the woman answers, "Yes, I'd like to go to the Beijing restaurant," the recording then takes a turn towards the sensual when she changes her answer to, "No, I'd like to go to your place."

MAN: "To my place? I too would like to. But later, okay?"

WOMAN: "Not okay."

Wow, Chinese ladies don't play, son.
