More Valentine’s Day Treats

As fast as my fingers will fly (I was busy getting you flowers, see? XOXOXOXO).

Here are some restaurants to consider with Valentine’s dining specials.  In no particular order…..

Ristorante Nicola and Nicola’s Ristorante Italiano are offering special Valentine’s dinners.  Mama Mia!  That’s amore!

Villa-O, 214-780-1880

Rafain offers a couples special $90 for all 16 cuts of meat, salads, special desserts, and a glass of wine.  Call 972-733-1110

The new digs opening February 24th

Say goodbye to Morton’s Dallas downtown. Valentine’s weekend is it for the iconic steakhouse. They will be closing their doors afterthe last Valentine’s Day diner is served, and opening their brand new Uptown location on February 24th, at 2222 McKinney (this is where Grotto was for about 20 minutes–across from the Ritz-Carlton). Phone 214-741-2277 for Valentine’s res. The number will stay the same.

Oh, speaking of the Grotto (the original and real Grotto), Morris Salerno’s popular spot in Highland Village has a special Valentine’s menu with music. Call 972-318-0515.

Remember, tickets to Savor Dallas will increase your love quotient exponentially.  Extend the romance and join the fun March 18th and 19th.  It’s something you both will enjoy.

Scroll down for previous Valentine’s suggestions posted a couple of days ago.  And, for some great Valentine’s wine suggestions, and the secret to pairing chocolate with wine, read on!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
