It’s not Valentine’s Day yet, but it sure feels like it as nearly every shop in town overflows with chocolates and candies, lovey-dovey cards, and oversize teddy bears.

But forget the corny gifts. The real way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. As the love-filled holiday quickly approaches, spread some romance with a dinner reservation at one of more than 40 restaurants offering multicourse meals. Beware: Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest dining days of the year, so coupled or not, grab a plus-one and book in advance. Also note that most prices do not include tax and gratuity.
