If you're just as crazy in love with Queen Bey as you are with your significant other, you're not alone. Brooklyn restaurant Brucie has planned an all-Beyoncé-themed dinner, with dishes inspired by the queen herself, her former gal group, Destiny's Child, her hubby, Jay-Z, and even her daughter, Blue Ivy. While we aren't about to go to Brooklyn just to try it out, dishes like the "Drunk in Love" Negroni short rib with farro and a beef heart salad make the menu look more worthwhile than a pricey, pun-laden ode to Sasha Fierce.

Beyoncé fandemonium is peaking since her surprise release album about two months ago, so it's almost not even surprising that a whole restaurant would dedicate its menu to her on the busiest dining night of the year. The online menu proudly announces, "Our Valentine's menu is Beyoncé themed."
From there it lists dishes like "Oysters Rocafella," "I Am Pasta Fierce," "Put a Ring on It," and "Breastiny's Child," a veal breast braciole with pickled fig, sopressata, and goat yogurt. As much as we'd like to completely dismiss this menu as a publicity stunt, which it clearly is since media outlets have been gobbling the story up, there's also a very genuine love of Mrs. Carter that is kind of endearing and some of the dishes actually look pretty tasty.
