If you still haven't made reservation for Valentine's Day, it's well past time to hop to it! Treat your significant other to a Valentine's feast and they'll be thanking you till February 14th 2016 rolls around. Although, I'm positive all the restaurants in New Orleans are taking reservations for this Saturday, here are a couple of spots that have created luscious menus specifically for your romantic evening.
Always up for a culinary challenge, Chef William Sampson at Vega Tapas Cafe has created a special St. Valentine's Day Aphrodisiac Menu with dishes like "pimiento del piquillo y jamón serrano" or piquillo peppers and serrano ham in saffron butter, "crêpes de ostras" or Louisiana oyster and wild mushroom crêpe in madeira cream, and "pastel de chocolate de trufa" or chocolate truffle cake and fresh strawberries. To make your reservations, visit vegatapascafe.com or call 504.836.2007.
For both February 13th and 14th the Omni Royal Orleans' Rib Room is presenting a "carefully crafted degustation menu." From an amuse featuring champagne and fried oysters to entrees like parsley-pecan crusted lemon fish and a deconstructed strawberry shortcake for dessert, you won't want to miss out on five courses of bliss made expressly for you and yours from Executive Chef Tom Wolfe.
