Valentine's Day Fun

Alas, here I am, hanging my head in shame. Too much writing this week and not enough eating of anything fabulous (or notably horrible for that matter) has kept me from feeding bocconcini. But by next week, I’ll have a more complete list of Valentine’s Day events, along with a couple of recipes for those cooking at home. In the meantime …

For those rolling solo on Valentine’s Day, word on the street says 333 Belrose (lounge only) is the place to be, with reduced drink prices ($1 less than happy hour) and complimentary hors d’oeuvres. If you’re lucky enough to coerce another mingling single to join you for dinner in the not-too-distant future, let the hostess know, and she’ll help you make a reservation and reward you with 20 percent off upon your return.

If it’s Valentine’s night with the kids, pick up a copy of Ratatouille (it is the Year of the Earth Rat, after all) and surprise them with a heart-shaped pizza from Bella Luna Pizza Kitchen. The 10-inch pie comes with Caesar salad and homemade brownies (for two) for $18.95. Moms and dads can upgrade the family dining experience with a heaping bowl of chef Ralph Pallarino’s swanky lobster macaroni and cheese ($26.95) and a bottle of cabernet or shiraz. Available Feb. 14-16.

Our Best of the Main Line Elimination Ballot is open through February 22!
