    Oh man- I am SO hungry now and I’m going to ask my husband where we are going for dinner on Vday! (That steak looks pretty terrific)

  3. says

    It’s hard to pick just one!! Based on the photo to represent it alone, I’d go for Felica Suzanne’s first. Mm hmm that looks good!

  4. Jenna Wood says

    Oh man, I just ate and I think I’m hungry again- It’s hard for me to decide whether a great steak or a beautiful dessert takes priority. I don’t know how I’d pick which one to make reservations at!

  5. says

    We live in such a rural area, we don’t really have any fancy restuarants, lol the fanciest is Applebee’s or the Page! Those all sound like great places to dine in!

  6. Daisy says

    J. Alexander’s has my name written all over it! I love wood fired cuisine. The desserts looks so awesome too which would be a great splurge for a romantic evening!

  7. says

    All of those dishes look tasty. I love to find local restaurants that are not chains to eat at. They have such a personal feel to them and the chefs work hard making such pretty plates.
