Shakespeare wrote “if music be the food of love, play on.” Although we love music as much as the next person, we think food is the food of love quite frankly. Enjoy a romantic meal with your special someone at one of these five wonderful restaurants this Valentine’s Day.
Calissa calls itself “the Mykonos of the Hamptons.” The menu focuses on seafood and Greek dishes such as salt baked fish, seafood pasta and Mediterranean fare. They will be serving a $75 prix fixe on Valentine’s Day featuring fig salad with baby arugula, prosciutto, blue cheese and port wine reduction, Kolokythopita squash and feta pie, filet mignon with Greek style chimichurri, mashed potato and lemon Horta and for dessert (a necessity on V-Day), chocolate lava cake with Valrhona chocolate and fresh strawberries and red velvet cake topped with chocolate sauce.
Forget Fifty Shades of Grey, Almond in Bridgehampton is offering a special “Shades of Red” menu for Valentine’s. The $90 four-course prix fixe includes delicious items such as assorted up island duck charcuterie, aged Montauk tuna loin BLT sandwich, pork tortellini, Peconic Bay scallops, General Tso’s fluke and a shawarma spiced rack of lambs. For dessert, beignets! Oh, and Almond is also bringing back their popular karaoke on Saturday nights.

The Valentine’s Day menu is $65 per person and features truffle potato leek soup, Maine lobster ravioli, grilled kielbasa skewers, pistachio and panko crusted wild flounder, ocean “bouillabaisse” and raspberry passionfruit creme brulee.

The Valentine’s Day menu includes Manhattan clam chowder, lobster au poivre vert, trou normand, and aged triple creme cow’s milk cheese.
