Like many holidays, Valentine’s Day will look different this year — but that doesn't mean the celebration can’t be special. From virtual cooking demos to signature recipes from Resy chefs, we have ideas for tasty at-home festivities. And since the best way to support your local restaurants is by patronizing from them directly, we've rounded up city guides for the top places to try in February. We’re also sharing some of the many things we love about dining out through a collection of Love Letters. Because Valentine’s Day or not, there’s always love to be found in restaurants.
