Valentine’s Day dinner: 3 budget-conscious picks
On the cheap
Shake Shack, 2000 Sansom St.; 3200 Chestnut St.; 160 North Gulph Rd., King of Prussia
Clink your fries together and toast to your romance, then grab two spoons and dig into Shake Shack’s featured frozen custard flavor, Cupid’s Passion, available Fridays in February. 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.
Go big or go home
Barclay Prime, 237 S. 18th St.
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.
