If you’re planning on dining out on Valentine’s Day with your special someone, do be prepared to take a few precautions to ensure that your night goes as smoothly as possible. Fine dining restaurants are extremely in demand these days and it is of utmost necessity to plan ahead.
If you wish to impress that special someone this year with a romantic ambiance and a night they’ll never forget, read on for tips on how to navigate one of the most special days of the year.
Make a Reservation in Advance
According to the senior VP of research for the National Restaurant Association, Valentine’s Day is the 2nd busiest day of the year for restaurants, with the first being Mother’s Day. This means that it would be wise of you to anticipate a crowd on February 14th with restaurants being notoriously packed. It would show great planning and forethought to book a reservation at least 5 to 6 weeks beforehand and cultivate your patience during the day itself for anticipated long waiting times. Set a calendar reminder on your phone to remind yourself to book beforehand. You could also grab a small bite and not show up famished on the day itself, just in case the food ends up arriving slower than usual. Try to book early and on a non-peak hour to avoid the crowd for that day. Your date would thank you afterward!
Expect a Special Valentine’s Day Menu
For special events like Valentine’s Day, many restaurants offer a prix fixe menu with a fixed series of courses that are unique to the day itself, so do be sure to look up the food your restaurant would be serving. Ensure that there’s nothing there that you or your date are allergic to, and make sure that everything is to your liking.
Consider Valentine’s Day Brunch
There is no golden rule that says that Valentine’s Day has to be celebrated in the evening. Switch things up and meet your special someone for brunch and you’ll be able to evade the huge crowds and long waiting times! You could even plan a whole day’s activity for your partner and take a romantic stroll around the neighborhood after your hearty meal.
Though it might be tempting to savor the romantic ambiance with your partner, do remember that your seat is in high demand and it’s on one of the busiest days of the year for restaurants. Spare a thought for the people waiting in line and give up your seat after you’re done. Good karma will circle back to you!
