Valentine's Day dining menus and specials

Valentine's Day falls on a Friday this year, which is shaping up to be great news diners and patrons alike.

Unofficially at least, Valentine’s Day is being celebrated in restaurants starting on Thursday, Feb. 13 and going through Saturday, Feb. 15. Restaurants offering special Valentine’s Day menus are making them available not just on Valentine’s Day proper but all weekend.

“The dreary weather has made this winter slower than usual,” said Downtown Partnership of Baltimore president Kirby Fowler. “Valentine’s Day means big business, especially when it falls on a Friday night. We’re hearing from restaurants that they’re excited to follow up Valentine’s Day weekend with the start of Winter Restaurant Week and the ‘Absolutely Febulous’ promotion. The combination of events is should be a perfect storm, figuratively, to make up for the actual storms that have slowed business and kept diners home.”

Most of the fixed-price menus follow the traditional appetizer-entree-dessert format and are priced from about $35 dollars to $75, depending on the restaurant.
