Tick-tock, it’s about time you start planning for Valentine’s Day! While we believe everyday is a day to celebrate love and food, Valentines Day has a certain weight attached to it. It’s one of the busiest days in the restaurant industry (after Mother’s Day, as it should be) and tables fill up fast.
Looking for something truly special for that special someone? Here’s where we wish we were being taken this year.
For those who can’t make the 14th work
Got a busy schedule? Miijidaa in Guelph is putting on a special three course menu from February 10th – 14th making it easier then ever to treat that special someone to a locally sourced meal.
For those who want something seriously special
Iron Kettle B&B
Normally, you’d have to spend the night to dig into Chef Ben Leblanc-Beaudoin’s food at The Iron Kettle. Valentine’s Day is different. There’s two seatings available at his table and it’s an experience you won’t want to miss.
For those who want to splurge
Spend the night at Langdon Hall, book a massage for two before sipping cocktails at Wilks Bar. For dinner, indulge in a the chef’s tasting menu — which changes almost everyday. The next day, tuck into their country table breakfast.
For those who want to make a weekend of it
Le Chien Noir
Le Chien Noir is running a lovely contest for lovebirds. Head to their Facebook page for a chance to win a one night stay at the Residence Inn Marriott Kingston, PLUS dinner for two with two complimentary glasses of procescco. Sounds delish!
For those who want to cook it themselves
Sanagan’s Meat Locker
To quote Peter Sanagan: Valentine’s Day is “like Christmas for people who see each other’s private parts“. What better way to honour that idea than to pick up a couple really good steaks? Sanagan’s has you covered with locally, ethically raised pork, beef and even venison steaks.
For those who are so over it
Every week in FeBREWuary, Borealis will be featuring a different Beau’s beer — plus, for every pint purchased they will donate $0.50 to the Grand River Conservation Authority. That sounds like a pretty sweet deal.
