Valentines Day is coming up my friends and while I love eating out, I usually recommend staying in and just cooking for that special day. BUT if you absolutely need to go out and deal with the masses, here are some great Valentines date pairings to help keep things simple. These pairings are focused on a cozy, full service restaurant(s) paired with a good bar. And when I mean bar, I mean, cocktails! On a special day like Valentines Day, I think it calls for cocktails or maybe a glass of wine. It’s a classic combination like champagne with strawberries or red wine with dark chocolates. And of course, the pairing must be walkable and within a block or two.
I’ve included links to full reviews when available. Good luck and buono appetito!
