In Lambertville...

Wine or dine at DeAnna’s with any frequency and patrons know that DeAnna changes the decor as if the restaurant were a seasonal stage with creative lighting, props, over the top flower designs, and sometimes even an entire mural painted on the back wall. She and her crew have a great eye for the creatively intimate in her darkened restaurant and bar. Valentine's Day is no exception promising special holiday decor. “Love the one you’re with at DeAnna’s!” 52 North Franklin Street

Get cozy in the romantic darkness beside the wood burning stove or on the plush couches in the lounging area of the bar at The Swan. The eclectic interior is full of cluttered Americana ephemera. Order a drink and food from the bar menu. This place is perhaps more comfortable than one's own living room. The burger is fabulous. The mashed potato pizza is a carb loaded delight. The goat cheese and beet salad is another favorite. 43 South Main Street

Walk down the alleyway into the area known as the Pork Yard to find The Boat House. Mr. Bulger of Swan fame owns this cozy bar as well. It is nestled into a tiny old two story building with a wood burning stove downstairs and a plush couch upstairs that has hosted many a romantic date. Sink into the old leather chairs and sip cocktails surrounded by old wooden boat house lockers, books, and dusty old prints and paintings. 8 1/2 Coryell Street

Bring your date to France for a romantic evening at Manon. Jean Michel has been serving southern french food in his small bistro style restaurant for years. BYOB your choice of wine and settle in for a traditional meal infused with the flavors of Provence. For extra privacy and a romantic evening ask for the window table when you make a reservation. Manon is really a very special place for a special person. 19 North Union Street

Hamilton’s Grill Room in Lambertville is offering a $70 prix fixe that include everything from iced atlantic oysters to mixed grill of tuna with soy roasted shitake mushrooms to cupid’s collard greens.

In Lumberville...

Meander up the river into the small river town of Lumberville to the Black Bass Hotel, c.1745. They are serving a prix fixe menu for $75 which offers a generous number of selections for each of 4 courses. The coffee laquered roast duck with fresh pear ginger chutney and coffee sauce sounds adventureous. Start your cozy evening at the bar upstairs. 3774 River Road

In Carversville...

The Carversville Inn is doing a prix fixe as well for $75 per person. The grilled filet mignon and Maine lobster with lobster infused white stoneground grits bernaise sounds like a sensual experience all in itself. Roast brace of quail is also an option with andouille sausage stuffing. Town center
