Yesterday we told you about the ultimate Valentines Day dinner a five-course free-for-all centered on the ingestion of distended ducks livers. If you cant make it to that pinnacle of passion, youre not out of options. Weve put together a Valentines Day guide for the smitten that includes a rundown of restaurants owned by couples, with recipes for their romantic dishes; a patently unironic guide for free-spending sweethearts; our picks for the best chocolatiers, wine stores, and dessert spots; and even a few things not directly related to the ingestion of food.
