Valentine's Day Tips

Smart, romantic tips for your menus from National Restaurant Consultants

By Sarah Ann Noel - February 7, 2019

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and it's an evening most restaurants like to do something special. Probably you've already booked your reservations and are preparing for the main event. Regardless of your type of restaurant, for a big holiday, a special menu is key. 

Last year, our restaurant consultants shared some of their favorite ideas for full special menus. Perhaps you want to make only one special dish offering, or add something new to your menu. Food & Wine has great recommendations for recipes that can be split for two--very romantic; or if you're atmosphere is a little more cheeky, a list of sexy foods.

Another option to consider for special events are a la carte and prix fixe menus. American Express has recommendations for the how and why on their business blog, and they are tips worth considering. 

Our restaurant consultants have found that, whatever you choose to dress up a special day like Valentine's Day, it's best to keep it simple. This way you can ensure smooth execution and little interference with guests who are coming in for an intimate date.
