1. Back Bay Bistro
Waterfront dining equals romance—it’s an equation Back Bay Bistro has figured out for sure. The proof: a special five-course meal, plus an amuse-bouche to start and a decadent dessert to finish, created in the name of love. Think Chilean sea bass with sundried cherry risotto and pistachio beurre blanc, and a chocolate tower with raspberry garnish. It’s available Feb. 10 through 12, and Feb. 14.
2. Del Frisco’s Grille
Cozy up in a private booth and order sumptuous tastes like the dry-aged bone-in rib-eye with fried oysters or Maine lobster stuffed with jumbo lump crab. Normally offered only on weekends, these dishes will be available Friday, Feb. 10 to Tuesday, Feb. 14. And be sure to heat things up with a cocktail. Our pick: Flirting with Ginger.
This popular Newport Beach restaurant will teach you how to shake things up at home with a special pre-Valentine’s Day cocktail class Feb. 10, from 7 to 8:30PM. Beverage Director Jason Eisner will show you how to make a few of his favorite love potions. Cheers!
