Going Out This Valentine’s Day?


February 14th is the one day of the year dedicated to love. Whether you’ve been with your partner for 20 days or 20 years, Valentines offers the perfect night to get your favorite dish and celebrate the affection you have for one another.

If you want upscale romance…

Prepare for dim lights and Michael Bublé crooning in the background. Downtown, Troppo serves “comfort food with a twist” all made with the freshest ingredients. You’ll fall in love with the warm interior and vintage black-and-white photographs on the walls. For a special night outside the bustle of downtown, try Dusty’s Cellar. Their extensive wine list, flickering candles, and garlic truffle frites will set the mood.

If you want a more casual outing…

Enjoy each other’s company without the worry of which fork is for the salad. Chammp’s Kitchen and Bar offers mouth-watering food and a relaxing atmosphere. It’s the best spot for couples who want to celebrate their love and still catch the big game. Or, head to Old Town’s Meat for the best Southern barbecue. The pork ribs and meatwiches are sure to give your favorite carnivore butterflies.

If you want a hipster fairytale…

Dine at a restaurant that’s just as unique and quirky as you and your date. Check out Lansing’s Cosmos, where sparks will fly over wood-fired pizzas and space-themed murals. Or, for a tapa-style dinner made for foodies, try Red Haven. Their chefs work with local farmers to buy food in its peak season and bring the best of Michigan to each dish.

If you want to satisfy your sweet tooth…

Find dessert that puts the heart-shaped box of chocolates to shame. End your night with a stop at The Sugar Shack, a local staple since the ‘60s that’s still serving all your bakery favorites. Or visit P.F. Chang’s for their Great Wall of Chocolate, six decadent layers of frosted chocolate cake that will set you heart aflutter.

No matter your Valentines style, these local restaurants are the perfect way to end your night head-over-meals in love.
