It’s a Date! — Valentine’s Day Dine-In/Takeout Round-Up

Local Restaurants Sweeten the Pot with Special Valentine’s Menus


Whether it’s a low-lit night out for two, or a stay-at-home, sweetheart’s supper with the whole family, NEPA’s restaurants got you covered this Valentine’s Day.

There are so many ways to spoil that special person in your life on Valentine’s Day. Some go the simple, yet traditional route and pick up a bouquet of lovely flowers. Others might go big with a special piece of jewelry. And, still, there are those who truly know the way to their darling’s heart – chocolate… lots and lots of chocolate. Still, some brave souls decide to skip all the sappy, romantic formality and show up with a heart-shaped pizza.

You do what works for you, I guess. But if you just can’t help yourself, and you need to shower your loved ones with gifts, go for it. It is, after all, the one holiday that encourages going overboard with affection. The least you can do is get it right. Bring home some local beer. Spend the evening mixing up cocktails with homegrown NEPA spirits. And, of course, a bottle of local wine paired with some incredible desserts will always score you serious points.

And, if you really want to dial up the Valentine vibes, plan an evening out at a local restaurant. Plenty of NEPA’s finest dining destinations are creating special, festive menus as we speak. Just don’t wait. The holiday weekend is fast approaching and limited tables are filling up. Make the call. Reserve that sweet Valentine’s Day to remember at a NEPA restaurant.

Of course, you could always get it to go and enjoy a romantic pajama takeout party. We’re not judging. Either way, we’ve collected a list of local hot spots offering special holiday menus all across the region. Check it out.
