Yesterday we told you about the ultimate Valentine’s Day dinner — a five-course free-for-all centered on the ingestion of distended duck’s livers. If you can’t make it to that pinnacle of passion, you’re not out of options. We’ve put together a Valentine’s 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.
Pay no attention to that couple behind the curtain. Photo: Julie Mack
