Valentine’s Day dinner in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach 2013

Valentine’s Day is three weeks from today, Thursday, February 14. You’ve been warned, you’ve been put on notice. There’s no reason to forget unless you want to.

Today I’ve put together my ubiquitous roundup list of restaurants in the tri-county area serving Valentine’s Dinner. This list undoubtedly will grow as restaurants begin to put their menus together and make them public; (see you’re not the only one who waits to the last minute, I was actually told today by some sweetheart who answered the phone at a restaurant to call back the week of Valentine’s to get the information I needed. They won’t make this list. My phone calls are done. And no I didn’t tell them who I was, sad, this is the response they are giving to prospective reservations.)

If Valentine’s Dinner out on the town and deep in the pocket isn’t your scene, check out the article on Champagne, I wrote last week should you be planning your own celebration of love at home. Or if you’re thinking of going out of town click here for a list of romantic Valentine weekend getaways in Florida and my favorite, the roundup of lavish and luxurious Valentine getaways.  So until my next Valentine brainstorm post, happy Valentine planning.
