Courses include Pan Seared Scallops, Shrimp and Mussel Ciopino or Chermoula Marinated Beef Tenderloin Filet, and for dessert, Lemon Basil Strawberry Shortcake. Tickets are $150 per couple of $125 each and include complimentary glasses of sparkling wine.

  • The Granary ‘Cue and Brew is offering a three-course pre fixe dinner on Valentine’s Day from 5:30 to 10:00 p.m. for $55 per person (+tax/tip). Each guest will choose Welcome, Savor, and Stay Courses from a specially selected menu for the evening including items such as Smoked Pork Belly, Barbecued Duck Breast, Buttermilk Chess Pie and more. Select wine and sparkling options will be featured during the evening. Reservations are not required, but strongly suggested and may be made online. The Granary also has a new seasonal beer on tap, ideal for chocolate lovers: Imperial Mocha Stout.  

 

  • Downstairs at The Esquire Tavern– Grab your honey and get cozy downstairs! Buck the norm and celebrate V-day a day early at their Tuesday (FEBRUARY 13th) Fried Chicken and Champagne night. This place has enough dark corners to cuddle with your honey in and great food and drinks. Call to make a reservation 210-222-2521.

 

  • Vodka is my Valentine – Valentine’s Day for Singles at Paramour is technically not a food idea but hey, some of us prefer to drink our day away. Happening Valentine’s day from 6pm to 12am come and celebrate being single and ready to mingle. As they put it “Who needs a Valentine when they have Vodka?” grab your other single friends and party the night away! Nothing says Valentine’s like a vending machine filled with champagne right? Reservations

 

  • Another great option for V-Day is The General Public. They are offering chocolate from Ms. Chocolatier throughout the day as well as a FREE champagne flight with the purchase of a meal (do you get the theme here?). Throw in live music and you’ve got the ingredients for a romantic night that’s sure to prove to be very special. Make reservations for dinner to enjoy with all your peeps or your lover. Happy hour starts at 3pm,  just saying.
