Here’s Where to Spend Valentine’s Day

By Emily Wilson

With the holiday of love less than two weeks away, we’ve gathered up some festive offerings at these DC hotspots. In the name of love, get in on the fun.

Bresca
The acclaimed chef Ryan Ratino helms this warm and whimsical modern bistro, where he’ll be serving a luxurious tasting menu (think truffles, burrata, caviar, and more) this Valentine’s Day – the restaurant’s first.
Menu Highlights: parmesan tartlette with black truffle and nori; burrata raviolini with caviar butter, lemon, caper, and nasturtium; lamb saddle with boudin, feta, and olive, and artichoke; chocolate bar with preserved berry, lemon balm, and parsnip.
$90, Book now on Resy.

Maple
Italian-influenced and wine-focused is the modus operandi at Maple, where the vibe is casual and, thus, Valentine’s Day will be, too. The regular menu will be offered alongside a few special dishes, desserts, and — the pièce de résistance — $20 off all bottles of champagne.
