On Valentine’s Day, every purchase gets you a card redeemable for a free single cup or cone of custard the next time you stop in.

Live a little
Supper, 926 South St.
This stylish South Street spot is offering a four-course menu for $69. Choose from options including grilled beef heart crostini, sushi-inspired dip with rice crackers, pan-roasted halibut and, for a sweet ending, the red velvet mousse or the “three passions,” a combo plate based around passionfruit.

Chef Jeffrey Froehler is cooking up V-Day specials at Stephen Starr’s Rittenhouse Square steakhouse, which we’re happy to say has made a comeback. Splurge on the filet rossini, made with black truffles, or the porcini agnolotti with chestnut puree, or stick with our tried-and-true favorite: the dry-aged ribeye.
