It's a little late to be thinking about booking a table for tomorrow night’s Valentine’s Day dinner, which is always a highlight on the Beijing dining out calendar. But given there's about 80 choices listed in our events section, you might get lucky, and even if you miss making a booking for Saturday night, there's plenty of time to romance your lover with intimate dining encounters into the future.
With that in mind, you may want to check out some of Beijing’s Most Romantic restaurants ... According to our nomination panel in this year’s Reader Restaurant Awards (vote here to cast your ballot), the following spots are among Beijing’s most romantic destinations for dinner, and their plans for V-Day:
TRB has prepared a succulent eight-course tasting menu with luscious wine pairing that will make you and your date not only feel the passion, but essentially savor it. Available from Friday, February 13th to Tuesday 17th, at both lunch and dinner.
Capital M is serving a five-course Valentine’s menu in amongst its fireplace-laden dining room. Feast on Foie Gras, Salmon Gravlax, Australian and Beef Pan-fried Icelandic Halibut, among other things. End your evening with their Passionate Platter including passionfruit souffle, passionfruit ice cream, and passionfruit tart.
Mosto is serving a special four-course candlelight dinner, featuring fresh tuna, foie gras and bouillabaisse, followed by creme brulee. RMB 388 per person.
Mercante joins up with Great Leap Brewing and The Orchid Hotel for an intimate Valentine's Day evening featuring craft beer, Italian food and wine. The evening starts with four beers at GLB Original #6, followed by a meal at Mercante and concluding with wine at The Orchid. All proceeds benefit the Beijing LGBT Center. Act fast: only room for eight couples. Tickets are RMB 400 per couple.
Sureño is serving a five-course meal featuring a variety of seafood and meat selections, concluding with their chocolate and berries dessert. RMB 798 (+15 percent service) per couple, RMB 1,588 with champagne.
Opera Bombana has separate "his" and "hers" menus for their Valentine's Day meal, featuring blue fin tuna, Atlantic blue lobster, Mayura beef tenderlion, and rich chocolate domes.
Dali Courtyard: While more known as a warm-weather destination, Dali Courtyard in the hutongs is an intimate trip in the winter. It's rustic old-style charm and its prix fixe menu of Yunnan delights makes for an evening of spicy romance. Extra bonus: they're offing 10 percent off their normal prices tomorrow night.
Susu Though this intimate Vietnamese spot hidden at the end of a non-descript alleyway isn't planning anything special for V-Day, its small, welcoming interior makes for a romantic visit almost any time of the year.
