You can show the love with a fancy French dinner, a traditional steak or decadent amounts of chocolate that will make this a great Valentine’s Day.


Bouchon Bistro

As a humble tribute to French cuisine, Thomas Keller's Bouchon Bistro in Yountville is a perfect spot for a romantic dinner. On The Best Thing I Ever Ate, Tyler Florence wishes he had concocted Keller's Salmon Rillettes, a buttery spread of smoked salmon served with fresh bread.

Bread & Chocolate
For a date night dessert that's out of this world, try Chef Eunice Feller's Boston Cream Pie. It's the bakery’s specialty, but you'll find plenty of European and American specialties to share with your sweetie.

Chicago Chop House
If you want a classic meal in a timeless Chicago environment, the Chop House is where to go. Giada loves the petit filet and gets a kick out of the photo walls: one with all the town's mayors, one with all its gangsters.

Hog Island Oyster Co.
What could be more romantic than a plate full of succulent oysters and a bottle of champagne? How about eating outside, right on the water with a perfect view of the Bay Bridge? Hog Island's oysters are as fresh as they come, and Tyler Florence can't get enough of them.

Mercadito Midtown
For a seriously hot drink that might just turn out to be a love potion, head to Mercadito Midtown in Miami and have a Vato Loco. Stay for traditional Mexican food mixed with seasonal and local sensibilities, and you've got a perfect date night.

Sweet Cheeks Baking Company
If you're looking for a healthy treat for your sweet cheeks, Pat and Gina Neely recommend the chewy chocolate cheeks, a healthy cookie full of antioxidants and fiber. Don't worry though; Pat ensures they don't taste like they're good for you.
