Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and the way to someone’s heart is their stomach! Below is a list of hot spots which I adore and set the romantic mood!
Eddie V’s-The place is elegant and the food is delicious-I love sitting on their rooftop patio. With a live jazz band playing and a gorgeous ocean view, I’ve had an amazing experience every time.
Bencotto-Italian food is one of my favorite types of meals and this Little Italy hot spot has high quality in both their food and service. I always have to get their black ink squid pasta, and I haven’t found a place that has done it better.
Ironside Fish & Oyster-The restaurant has a quirky and fun nautical-themed interior with a very eye-catching bar, might I add! I die for their fresh seafood and their buttery lobster roll is perfection.
Craft & Commerce-The great atmosphere, the bookshelves, the delicious craft cocktails and the seasonal menu, are a few reasons why you should go here. Chef Ted Smith did such a fantastic job creating the new menu-my favorites being the bone marrow and their burger. Make sure to visit their tiki bar False Idol after!
The Hake-The waves are literally crashing below you while you’re sitting in a sophisticated dining room and eating some great seafood. Does it get more romantic than that?
Tidal-I highly recommend sitting outside to enjoy the beautiful water of Mission Bay. I love their tom kha soup and their Hawaiian rolls. They do have prix fixe entree menu for Valentine’s Day, which includes pink peppercorn smoked 14-ounce New York strip steak and truffle tremor raviolo, YUM.
Pushkin Russian Restaurant-This classy Russian restaurant is filled with traditional Russian foods and the ambiance of the place is perfect for a romantic date. A must-try are there lamb racks and of course, the honey cake for dessert.
Bankers Hill Bar+Restaurant-The interior is chic and modern, with yummy modernized American foods. Their seasonal bruschetta is fantastic and the deviled eggs are a great starter.
Costa Brava-The best Spanish tapas in town. With live music, fresh sangria, great atmosphere and mouth-watering tapas, this sure will make a great date night.
