Looking for a date night spot for Valentine's Day?
Here are my top picks for where to dine in the South Bay:
Enoteca La Storia
Originating in Los Gatos, this classic Italian wine bar now has a second location in downtown San Jose. They have an incredible selection of wines and amazingly fresh menu items. Try the cheese plate, the crostini sampler, or one of their homemade pasta selections.
Plumed Horse is Michelin star rated modern California cuisine and their food is amazing. If you want something with an ambiance as impressive as its menu, check out Plumed Horse for a romantic evening.
There's nothing more romantic than sharing cheese fondue over a glass of wine in a dimly lit room. La Fondue is, obviously, a fondue restaurant, but their eclectic decor is reason enough to visit the restaurant.
If extravagant farm-to-table is your thing, check out Manresa. This new-American eatery serves a nightly tasting menu that changes to reflect the season. Manresa is Michelin star rated and boasts an impressive wine selection.
Nothing says Valentine's Day like a classic French restaurant. Le Papillon pairs contemporary French menu items with a selection of over 500 wines.
