Dinner is Served, With a Side of Romance
Where to Eat in Asheville for Valentine's Day

Pretty in Pink at MG Road, one of several

local "love potions" on the menu for V-Day.
Valentine's Day is only a week away, and several Asheville restaurants are offering unique date night opportunities to get you in the mood.

Check out some of these hot spots, or one of the many exciting events happening over the V-Day weekend.

At Rhubarb, James Beard-recognized chef John Fleer is cooking up a special aphrodisiac-themed tasting menu featuring goodies like mushroom-stuffed rabbit and cocoa nib-dusted duo of tenderloins, as well as a cocktail menu of "love potions."

The cocktail party continues with MG Road's Pretty in Pink drink, made with homemade pistachio-almond milk, saffron gin and pomegranate-rose syrup. While you're there, be sure to order some of the a la carte dishes that Beard-nominated chef Elliott Moss and his team are preparing as a part of the ongoing Thunderbird restaurant-takeover.

Those looking for the ideal double date should take a look at Lobster Trap, offering the "Amour Feast for Four" with a seafood-packed menu of fresh seafood, sides, dessert and champagne.

After dinner, dance your way over to Lex18 for their Valentine’s Flamenco Late Night Rendezvous. Tickets to this top-tapping show include live entertainment, wine, savories and desserts, set amid this 1920s style speakeasy.

And if you're just not in the mood for love this year, join the party the night before at MG Road's Friday the 13th Tainted Love Singles Ball, complete with dancing and drinks.
