Chicago Restaurants with Valentine’s Day Specials

This year’s Valentine’s Day may not be as bad as you had initially thought. With Tier 4 reopening restaurants and bars, we’re spoiling you with a tour of Chicago’s best neighborhoods and the culinary experiences they offer. Whether you’re planning a romantic date with your significant other, a galantines night or a double date, this list offers a little something for everybody and an array of choices. 

Althea – A vegan chocolate themed Valentine’s day menu 

Not only for plant-based food lovers but for anyone willing to try something out of the ordinary! Besides, who doesn’t like chocolate? From their cacao nib pesto to their truffle slice with caramelized white chocolate and balsamic, this creative menu is already making our mouth’s water. With COVID-19 pushing our moral compasses, experiencing world-known Chef Matthew Kenney’s vision of sustainability might well be the perfect 2021 Valentine’s date.

Ēma – California inspired ‘Mezze and a Movie’ 

Nothing like Mediterranean cuisine to boost your Chicago winter blues. Inspired by seasonal ingredients and the role each one plays, the head chef, CJ Jacobson has prepared a special ‘Mezze and a Movie’ take-out menu for you on this Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re trying to score some points on a first date or are seeking a fancy yet cozy movie night with your partner, we guarantee you’ll be left California dreamin’. If you are looking for something extravagant, Ēma also has a smorgasbord of dining options from private indoor dining to an enclosed heated patio.

Chez Moi – Can’t go wrong with some French classics  

Don’t be fooled by this French bistro’s simple and convivial atmosphere. Alsace-born Chef Dominique Tougne has received numerous honors from the French government for his French representation and outstanding contributions to agriculture. This year, he has prepared exclusive Valentine’s Day in-person dining specials as well as a gourmet box to-go. Let yourself be carried away on a culinary trip to France for the evening – your revisited classic crème brûlée awaits…

Shaw’s Crab House – According to Phoebe, lobsters mate for life … 

If you’re a seafood and meat lover, this four course Valentine’s Day dinner was made for you. We recommend making a reservation on their heated patios for the ultimate romantic fairy-light setting – and yes, they provide blankets. We get why they have been one of Chicago’s premiere outing venues this season! You’ll be happy to know that they also have indoor dining and if you feel more comfortable at home, you can pre-order a meal to-go.
