Where are YOU going for valentine's day?

  • n

It's just around the corner guys, wanted to know where you were going?

We went to Turner New Zealand last year. It was good, but looking back I'd rather pass on the tasting menu and go for a la carte. It was not cheap either - 125pp.

  1. I never, EVER go out on Valentine's Day. If I'm going to spend $100+ per person at dinner, I will do it on a night when not everything has been pre-cooked and stored in a cooler for a night or two.

    I will be making finger foods and creating a nest for my loved one. We're probably going to go to Napa Rose the following week, though.

      How is Napa Rose? Worth the trip from SFV, or am I better off going to an upscale place closer?

        Ditto.

        Going to Providence on Tuesday...

      2. Staying home...picking up live lobsters (and maybe oysters) from Fish King that S.O. will steam. Probably serve with some sort of potato dish and spinach. Possibly making Meyer Lemon Sorbet for dessert.

            But I like Pastis on Beverly for the understated romance.

            1. Not being a couple -- I'll likely go to a bar for a few drinks and probably a no-fuss dinner at home or at a lower-key restaurant that's not doing some V-Day prix-fixe dealy (which, as others noted, tend to be overpriced and suffer in quality).
