AF’s Picks for Dining Out on the Hallmark Holiday

It’s coming up...the hallmark holiday that some love but many dread. That's right, Valentine's Day is just around the corner.

Here at the Affordable Foodie, we prefer to get the best bang for our buck and dine in on that romantic evening (V-day recipes to follow in a future post) rather than fight the crowds that seem to take over otherwise delightful establishments. If you're braver than we are and feel like venturing out that night, below is a list of some of our favorite restaurants around town that are offering special deals or enhanced menus on Valentine's Day.

Old Vinings Inn
3 courses for $39.95 per person with champagne toast

JCT Kitchen
3 courses plus an amuse bouche for $55 per person

Pura Vida
The VA Highlands tapas joint is the most casual restaurant on our list. Pura Vida is offering 6 tapas, desert and a bottle of wine for $80 per couple.

This funky Inman Park hot spot will offer its standard contemporary American/Southen menu as well as 8 Valentine's specials. Wisteria is definitely an AF favorite! Check out Highland Pub if you go for a drink before or after dinner.

Babette’s Café
In addition to its regular menu, this quaint European restaurant will offer 3 special Valentine's dishes, each individually priced.

La Grotta
We saved the best for last. La Grotta offers a choice of 3 courses from a special menu with prices ranging from $45 - $55 per person. We highly recommend the Buckhead location, which has old-school style and delicious food. If you choose La Grotta, hurry up and make your reservation ASAP because it is almost booked on both Saturday and Sunday nights.

Honorable Mentions
Rosebud in Virginia Highlands, Canoe in Vinings and Cakes & Ale in Decatur are all offering their regular dinner menus as well as a selection of specials that will be sure to serve as aphrodisiacs for you and your date!
