Usually when you think of having a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner with your Valentine, your first thought isn't typically to go to White Castle. However, the chain has been trying to change that for a few years now.
Their site boasts "Love is Back in the Castle Feb 14th." So how does it work? They're open only to those who have reservations, which you need to make in advance. White Castle is decked out in Valentine's Day decorations, there's table cloths and flowers or other decor on the table, and you can even have your picture taken in front of the red and white heart-themed White Castle sign. There's glass flutes to drink out of and you'll receive paper menus.
I know a couple who went last year and loved it so much they're planning on making it a tradition. Reservations actually book up pretty fast in some places, such as in Chicago, where it states on the site that reservations are almost full.
If you're in New York, hours vary by White Castle location, but generally the seating time is 5pm to 9pm. You can call 718-899-8404 x 311 to make a reservation.
The other areas across the United States that are hosting Valentine's Day at White Castle are Chicago, Cincinnati, Columbus, Detroit, Indianapolis, Louisville, Minneapolis, Nashville, New Jersey, Northwest Ohio, and St. Louis. For the reservation numbers, check it out here.
