If you don’t have a plan for Valentine’s Day, now is the time to get one


- Alexis Larsen

Finding a romantic meal doesn’t need to be reserved for a special occasion or a Hallmark holiday, but to make romance a priority a good game plan is key.

And for a good dining game plan, a reservatio­n is an absolute must.

In honor of Valentine’s Day, here is a list of some of my favorite restaurant­s in town that have menus and atmosphere that can add to the love potion vibe and romantic feel you are trying to convey. I’ve included phone numbers so you can jump on those reservatio­ns in case you have fallen short in the planning department.

This is a list of spots that can be enjoyed at any time during the year with your sweetie, as well as to mark those special occasions that deserve celebratin­g.

However you decide to enjoy your special meals this year, never forget to raise a glass and toast moderation in all things — except in love!
