February is here, and that means Valentine's Day is lurking just around the corner. Hopefully you've already made plans for you and your special someone, but if you are looking for a little inspiration - here are a few of my favorite romantic restaurants to get you started!
What makes a restaurant a good date spot? Everyone certainly has their own preferences, but you can't go wrong with a cozy table, some candlelight and a good wine list. You'll also want to pick a place with impeccable service. Not only can your server make or break the experience, but on a busy night like Valentine's Day you want a pro who can handle the pressure and still make your date feel like a VIP guest. Don't forget that many restaurants have special fixed menus on holidays, so call ahead and make sure you know what you expect - even if it's a place you frequent often.
