It’s just a few days away, and San Diegans are getting ready for V-Day – or at least the females are getting ready for it. Here are some of our favorites pics for a romantic Valentine’s Day weekend with your significant other – but make sure to call in today, as this is bound to be a serious wait list already.
Searsucker is the brainchild of Top Chef finalist and resident Brian Malarky, who decided to leave Oceanaire and open his own restaurant in the Gaslamp District. Dedicated to the crustacean and unusual meat, Searsucker is one of the hottest restaurants downtown.
Addison is another favorite that has prepared a six course meal from Chef William Bradley. The menu offered includes baby sea scallops with wild sorrel, uni and toasted sesame priced at $195 per person with wine pairings.
Extraordinary Desserts is an all-time favorite of any local, especially on special occasions. If you don’t want to spend a wad during dinner, hitting one of the Extraordinary Desserts locations is ideal – grab a coffee or specialty tea and one of their extravagant desserts, perfect for any sweet tooth.
El Bizcocho has prepared a four course meal perfect for two, featuring oyster shooters with yuzu minonette and a whole spectrum of flavors and unusual cuisine. The signature red velvet valrhonoe chocolate and rose inflused ganache with white chocolate cream ends the evening perfectly.
Alexander’s is an alternative favorite, where the plates aren’t as pricey but the ambiance is still there. Nestled in the middle of North Park, it’s a hidden gem whether you’re looking for romance or not, and with a three course meal that still satisfies the taste-buds, it’s a worthwhile trip.
