Miami Valentine's Day 2015 Dinner Guide

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and, while some balk at this made-up holiday, calling it an excuse for stores to sell cuddly stuffed bears and flowers, most people take the day to heart... literally.

Look, in this increasingly cold world where communication is mostly via computer, why not jump on the opportunity to get all warm and fuzzy?

Our advice? Rush to the card store and pick out a schmaltzy greeting. Buy that cuddly stuffed bear, and make reservations for a romantic dinner for two.

Just remember, Valentine's Day is one of the busiest dining days so make reservations in advance, by using our handy guide to all the cafes and bistros serving up foie gras, oysters, Champagne, and love. As always, prices generally do not include tax and gratuity and menus are subject to change.
