Lots of Wine-ing on Valentine’s Day

Bar Zepoli
Bar Zepoli offers American-Italian fare focused on seasonality. While the dining room is striking, you may not notice, distracted only by the vibrant dishes in front of you.
What’s the Deal? Bar Zepoli whipped up a very special four-course Valentine’s Day menu for $85 per person, which includes one 1 complimentary glass of wine. An optional wine pairing with each course is also available for +$55 per person. While you know I’m a savory gal, I can’t help but dive into their delicious desserts including Nutella Cheesecake, Espresso Mousse Cake, Tiramisu, and Seasonal Sorbet Trio.

Two for One

My MYX Creative Kitchen
It’s no secret I’m obsessed with MYX. From it’s beautiful interior, to healthy, delicious options, it has me signed, sealed, and delivered. Customizing the salad and grain bowls is a bonus—I can create what I’m currently craving or select from one of their pre-designed options. Don’t miss out on the avocado-chocolate pudding! Because avocado and chocolate are both great for your heart!
What’s the Deal? Promo alert! Director of operations Rey Santos was recently on the radio show and offered a stellar two-for-one deal! Simply mention IntoxiKate at checkout and one of you receives a free bowl!

Washington Prime is more than just a stellar steakhouse (check out their tapas!). The eatery’s interior is stunning, bringing natural elements indoors, providing a beautiful backdrop for any ocassion. And I have yet to find a craft cocktail on their menu I don’t like.
What’s the Deal?  Swing by Washington Prime for a special, three-course Valentine’s Day menu, chock full of aphrodisiacs! For $65 per person*, you can dine on dishes like the Oyster Trio, Roasted Duck with Balsamic-Fig Reduction, and the sharable Flourless Chocolate Cake. For a $40 upcharge, steak lovers can even enjoy a 50-oz Porterhouse for two. View the Menu

Three Ways {To Celebrate}

Roger Sherman Inn
If you haven’t been to the Roger Sherman Inn recently, put this new England bed and breakfast at the very top of your list. While you may be saving your visit for a special occasion (ahem, Valentine’s Day!), you should treat yourself with dinner or brunch during the week (hey, you deserve it!). With Chef François Kwaku-Dongo at the helm, every meal is magical.
What’s the Deal?  Treat your significant other to a delicious, seasonal menu specially prepared by Chef François. Start with the Black Truffle Tagliatelle with Shaved Black Truffles and Parmigiano Reggiano, but save room for the Prime Côte de Boeuf for Two with Perigord Sauce and Aligot Potatoes. We also have decadent desserts to choose from, including the Chocolate Mousse Dome and Chocolate Mille-Feuille. The multi-course dinner is $95 per person exclusive of tax and gratuity. Chef François is also preparing his  signature house made Chocolate Truffles in three different varieties—chocolate with cocoa powder, sea salt caramel dark chocolate, and white chocolate champagne. Each $35 box contains a dozen truffles. And (if that wasn’t enough!), RSI offers a romantic weekend package including the Valentine’s Day Dinner for two (details above) excluding beverages, an overnight stay package, and a half dozen chocolate truffles. The package is $379 per couple, all inclusive tax and gratuities. For the overnight stay, simply select any date from February 14th to March 31st.
