Valentine's Day - Chapel Hill/Durham
- cheinonen Jan 29, 2009 05:29 AM
I'm wondering if people know some restaurants in Chapel Hill or Durham (and the surrounding area) that have special Valentine's Day menus. Price matters a little, so Fearrington House would be a little too expensive. Thanks.

I would contact Bonne Soiree in Chapel Hill. My gf and I ate here on Dec. 30, and it was hands-down the best meal of my life. We had an 8-course tasting with wine pairings, and each course was different for the two of us, allowing us each to try a broader spectrum of dishes. Tina, who runs the front, is very enthusiastic about wine and an excellent host, and Chip, the Exec. Chef, is fantastic in preparation and flavors! I can't reccommend this place enough, and I'm sure if you contacted them, they would be more than happy to arrange a special menu or tasting for Valentine's Day!
Another one to try is Nana's in Durham - the gf and I had our New Year's Eve dinner here and were quite impressed...the fallow veal was incredible, and the sea bass was the best I have had...
Could be expensive, though...check it out
Talullas, an upscale Turkish place on West Franklin in CH, has a special V-day menu. And their lounge-y, opium den vibe is kind of romantic, especially if you sit in the little room in the back with the throw pillows and the curtain. Provence in Carrboro is a quiet, romantic little family-run place that specializes in the seafood of the South of France - don't know if they have a special Valentine's menu though.
