While our country is a huge mess right now, remember that love conquers all. This Valentine's Day, you and your significant other have the chance to tune out the incessant political coverage and gaze lovingly into each other's eyes as well as split dessert — if you do that sort of thing. So put the phone down and turn up the heat on Feb. 14 with these five Philly restaurants serving up delectable prix fixe menus.
1234 Locust St.
Enjoy a cozy prix fixe meal at this Midtown Village staple. For only $55, they’re offering a four-course meal for Valentine’s Day. With options like truffled steak tartare crostone and veal chop parmigiana, you’ll be cleaning your plate. Save room for dessert though because the lemon ricotta cheesecake sounds amazing.
306 Market St.
Venture down to Old City for contemporary American Cuisine at Fork. On Valentine’s Day, their special four-course menu features hand-made pastas and sausage stuffed quail. While specific dessert items aren’t listed, expect a sweet finish at the end of this $99 prix fixe experience.
