We've been to Providence, L'Orangerie (closed) Bastide, and other places for Valentines but we're looking for something new, romantic, innovative and with a free table. Any of you lovebirds out there have any ideas?

    Don't go to a restaurant on Valentine's day! They are way to busy and the food isn’t as good as when everything isn't that hectic (and everything isn't reserved already). Cook something special, and make a romantic dinner at home...

        That's a great idea! I was there a long time ago and remember it as very romantic
