The Valentine specials keep rolling in, so we've gathered several more for your romantic culinary delight. Here are 19 more Valentine's Day specials in Metro Phoenix.
Earnest Cost: $75 per person The three-course dinner served at Earnest on Valentine's Day (and the day before) will be a sound option for those with dietary restrictions and those without. While the rest of us will be able to dine on sea bass, beef tenderloin and tomato bisque with prosciutto, vegetarians will have options such as pappardelle pasta and a baby beet salad (as well as all three desserts, obviously). Several gluten-free options are available as well, including some of the $6 optional appetizer choices. A sparkling beverage is also included in the price.
Roaring Fork Cost: TBA While Roaring Fork won't be offering a whole lot of choices on Valentine's Day, the offerings they do provide are sure to be of the highest quality. The special Valentine's Day appetizer is a ground shrimp and grits dish, while the dessert is a Bananas Foster rum cake with vanilla gelato. For entrees, you'll be able to choose between a filet with a shrimp and crab cake and poached black cod with vanilla bean parsnip puree.
North Italia Cost: $55 per person If you're looking for a romantic Italian option this Valentine's Day, North's three-course prix fixe menu will be something you'll want to consider. You and your partner will each get to start with an appetizer, such as bruschetta or arancini, chow down on hearty entrees like prosciutto-wrapped pork tenderloin or grilled branzino. Of course, no Valentine's dinner would be complete without dessert, which includes a salted caramel budino and a tiramisu.
Little Cleo's Seafood Legend Cost: $50 per person Phoenix isn't known for its great marine delicacies, so if you're looking to take your date out for a nice seafood dinner, your options will be limited. Little Cleo's will be one place where you'll be able to get your ocean-based fix, starting with their signature shellfish combination of oysters, poached shrimp, king crab, and lobster. Other menu items include hamachi crudo, lobster bisque, and two types of scallops.
True Food Kitchen Cost: $25 per person In order to keep both your body and your financial situation healthy, True Food Kitchen is offering a three-course meal full of their healthful options. With offerings such as edamame dumplings, steak tacos, and spaghetti squash casserole, there's sure to be something for every palate trying to stay healthy. For dessert, they'll keep it as healthy as possible with a flourless chocolate cake, pomegranate yuzu sorbet, and a super berry tart.
Spinato's Pizzeria Cost: $29.95 per couple If you're in the mood for pizza on Valentine's Day, head over to Spinato's for a special menu just for the big day. For under $30, you and your valentine will split an appetizer, a salad, a bowl of garlic tomato bread stew, a small specialty pizza, and a special dessert.
SanTan Brewing Company Cost: Varies by plate Though there's no fixed menu, SanTan Brewing Company will be offering several special dishes for Valentine's Day. Items like bacon-wrapped filet mignon ($28) and amber ale brined pork porterhouse ($19) will set apart the entrees from other days, while the double chocolate brownie ($7.50) is sure to satisfy even the most discerning dessert-lovers.
The Upton Cost: Varies by plate Whether you're in a relationship or not, the Upton has you covered. There's a sharing menu for people who may be spending Valentine's Day with friends instead of a special someone, and then there's the three-course "Just for You and Me" menu that features options such as short rib ravioli and Mediterranean mussels for those who are coupled up. Regardless, everyone gets a dark chocolate soufflé at the end to make you feel better about whatever your romantic situation is.
Gertrude's Cost: $190 per couple (includes a bottle of Chainier Rose Brut) For one of the fancier Valentine's meals in town, check out Gertrude's, which will be serving the three-course menu every evening during Valentine's Day weekend. Appetizers include lobster bisque and a shrimp cocktail, while the main course options cover everything from chateaubriand to escargots. Dessert will present the options of a crepe Suzette or a chocolate soufflé.
EVO Cost: $65 per couple Not every relationship works on a traditional schedule. That's alright, because EVO will be serving its Valentine's Day menu until 1:30 a.m. from February 13 until February 15. The three-course meal will include appetizers such as EVO's signature salad, entrees like braised pork and Atlantic salmon, and a dessert choice of a chocolate torte or panna cotta.
The Herb Box Cost: $89 per couple The Herb Box's "Honey and Date" prix fixe menu will be five courses of delicacies featuring local ingredients. For under $100, you'll start with a spicy chowder, choose between a date-balsamic roasted chicken and lamb lollipops, and have a honey date cake for dessert, plus more.
District American Kitchen and Wine Bar Cost: $57 per person This three-course menu only includes one dessert (a chocolate flourless cake), but contains many options for your appetizer and entrees. While your appetizer choices hold everything from sweet potato bisque to bacon-wrapped dates, the main courses can be picked from a "District Lovers Duo" (beef tenderloain and Dungeness crab), a striped bass, or something even more creative, like vegan scallops.
Different Pointe of View / Pointe in Tyme Cost: $110 per person / $49.95 per person Different Pointe of View will be serving up a special five-course menu for their Valentine's Day, featuring pan-seared diver scalops, duck confit salad, poached Maine lobster, and venison strip. Pointe in Tyme will be taking a slightly more relaxed route, with a three-course menu including seared sea bass, asparagus bruschetta, and a chocolate volcano cake. Either way, you'll be hard-pressed to go wrong with the two restaurants inside of the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort.
Bink's Cost: $66 per person Though the two Bink's locations will be serving up different four-course menus, they'll both cost the same price (plus an additional $21 for seared foie gras). Bink's Midtown's menu includes gnocchi gratin, goose leg confit, and a spiced chocolate panna cotta. The Scottsdale location, on the other hand, presents a starter of beets, an entree of tomato braised lamb, and dessert of dark chocolate mousse.
