Chicago: Best Valentine’s Day Restaurants

Chicago: Best Valentine’s Day Restaurants

Whether you have a valentine or you are getting together with your friends, even though Valentine’s Day might be a super Hallmark holiday… it IS an excuse to go out to dinner and treat yourself. Between carry-out spots, casual spots or fancy spots… here’s a list of all my top Valentine’s Day restaurants.

disclaimer: none of these photos are my own. they were found on social media and yelp. 

C A R R Y  O U T  +  D E L I V E R Y

Cozy Noodles– order their crab rangoon, pad thai, garlic chicken noodles and basil chicken… break out the sweatpants, and you’re set for a night on the couch.

Pequod’s Pizza– I mean those who know me knew this would be on this list right now. One of the ways to my heart is seriously Pequod’s Pizza. It is forever my favorite.

Formento’s To-Go– who doesn’t love eating bomb.com pasta from the comfort of your own couch? throw in a bottle of wine… I’m sold. As if I wasn’t before.

Big Star– skip the massive wait, take tacos to go.

C A S U A L

Corridor Brewery– do I miss living down the street from here? Yes, yes I do. Get the mushroom, leek and goat cheese pizza. It’s what’s best for you.

Athena Restaurant– and if you don’t get at least one flaming saganaki… you did it all wrong.

Quartino– get a little bit of everything off the menu and be sure to make your own charcuterie board.

Summer House Santa Monica– just come here and forget that there’s been snow storm after snow storm after snow storm. Also, get the sea salt chocolate chip cookie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert… just do it.

Oyster Bah– I’m not a huge seafood person (other than sushi)… but I am a huge fan of Oyster Bah. Their mussels were so good and the ahi tuna fish tacos… amazing.

F A N C Y – I S H 

I’m nervous people will read this and be like “this isn’t fancy you peasant… so it’s fancy-ish. My type of fancy. 

Chicago Firehouse Restaurant– an old Chicago firehouse turned steak restaurant, the food and experience is an A+.

Volare– one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Chicago… you can find me either here or in Greektown every year celebrating my birthday.

Coda Di Volpe– their pizza is incredible, plus have them tell you about their brick pizza oven. It’s not only absolutely gorgeous, it is straight from Italy.

River Roast– A nicer place, yet it’s not a typical steak restaurant. Plus it’s right on the river, which even though it’s cold, it’s still pretty.

aaaaaaaaaand now I’m going to go make dinner and eat. My stomach is growing.
