Valentine's Day Dinners in Palm Beach
It's not too early to make those rezzies for you and your honey to get all sloppy and romantic over Valentine's Day dinner (which, for those of you who don't want to be sleeping on the couch for the rest of the month, is Monday, Feb. 14). So here are a half-dozen Palm Beach County restaurants where you can play footsie under the table while someone else does all the heavy lifting.
In addition to its namesake oysters (those luscious little seafaring aphrodesiacs) City Oyster & Sushi Bar in Delray Beach is dishing up several V-Day specials, including Wagyu meatballs with romesco sauce and veal medallions with Maine lobster.
At companion eatery City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill,
the regular menu is on tap for the big day, along with more oysters and
specials like ruby baby beet salad and bistecca Fiorentina. And you get
a complimentary chocolate-covered strawberry at the end of the meal.
Delray Beach's nouveau supper club, Prime,
has exec chef Peter Masiello offering a three-course dinner for $75 per
person, which includes live music and the chance to cuddle over
martinis like Nick and Nora Charles. (Go ahead and google it.)
Down around Boca way, the Pavilion Grille
presents a four-course dinner for $29.95 or $39.95 per person,
depending on your choice of entrée. There's dancing too, beginning at 9
p.m. so put on your hoofin' shoes.
Stick your fork into a
Valentine's Day dinner of USDA Prime filet mignon and cold-water lobster
tail, plus a romantic Chocolate Lovers Dessert at Boca's III Forks meatery. It will cost $150 per couple.
And if getting hammered on tequila sounds like your idea of Valentine's Day, Rocco's Tacos in West Palm and Boca Raton can make that happen and more, with specials like oysters ceviche, paella for two and Mexican chocolate tres leches cake.
