Nothin' Says Lovin' Like Somethin' From Someone Else's Oven: Where to Dine Valentine's Weekend

Love is in the air. Or maybe that’s just Rosemary and Dijon Encrusted Lamb Chops. Either way, my heart is beating a bit faster.

Yes, it’s time for Valentine’s Day, which often means a dinner at a romantic restaurant. This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday (it’s February 14, in case you’d forgotten). That’s not the most convenient evening for dining out, what with it being a school night and all that. So many of the restaurants that are offering V-Day specials are making them available all weekend long, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. That’s convenient for those who those who want to treat their sweetie to an evening out but not on a Sunday. It also allows the scamp with three different Valentine’s to play all weekend.

One of the enticing specials is at Bistro on Park Avenue, an especially romantic restaurant because of its location in the Hidden Gardens, perfect for a secret rendezvous or tete-a-tete.

Bistro on Park is offering a five-course dinner for two for $80. It includes shrimp bisque; a shared second course of prosciutto-wrapped melon; Bistro Salad; and a choice of entree from Grilled Fish Tacos, Filet Mignon or those Lamb Chops I mentioned above; and a shared dessert to finish.

The special is offered Friday through Sunday. And because Sunday is the official big heart day, Bistro on Park will be staying open until 10 p.m. — 3 p.m. is the usual close time. (School night, like I said.)

For reservations — and you really should make reservations — call the restaurant at 407-539-6520. Bistro on Park Avenue is at 348 Park Ave. N., Winter Park.
