Where did everyone go for Happy St. Valentines?!!?

Osteria del Teatro in South Beach did the trick for us again after many moons. Lucked into a table and the cuisine, service and ambiance were just as I remembered. We went with our old standbys for entrees: Black Ink Raviolis in a Lobster Cream Sauce + my favorite Osso Bucco with a Risotto Milanese...nIIIce!!! How about you, any standouts this year? Truthfully, I rarely go out on St Valentines Day due to gauging, poor service and mediocre menus, however Osteria is still bringing their A game after ? years. Our waiter has been there for 25 years so at least that long now. Come on I want all your gory and good details! and btw...HAPPY SAINT VALENTINE'S DAY 2 U & yours albeit an hour late!

    I'll bite......dry aged ribeye steaks and South African lobster tail all in the comfort of home on our schedule. No wait at the bar, no lame service, no interruptions.

      Thanks FDUUUUDE, That's what I'm talking about! I dunno how I suckered myself into a VDAY outing, it is so unlike me...I guess I felt bad for abandoning my Significant Other all weekend due to a friend's visit. It worked out, I have to admit, purrrfectly! I show up at one of the Top Italian Restos in SOBE without a reservation, get my pick of three 2 tops, along with stellar service and cuisine...not bad if we don't count the 2 bills I dropped! At Osteria you will pay, but chances are very good you will be glad to have done so.
