Ladies and gentlemen, you have but one week to get yourselves ready for Valentine’s Day. If you desire to whisk your love to something delicious, we’ve got you covered. A list of some of our favorite options from romantic to nostalgic to fit your style and budget. Many places are reservation only so please prepare accordingly.
Romantic but Traditional
With its European grand decor and quiet ambiance, Undercurrent (327 Battleground Ave., GSO)
is always a great choice for a quiet evening for two. Locally mastered dishes and excellent cocktails and wine make for a delicious experience.

The restaurant itself is quite romantic and cozy (and also highly recommended for your V-Day date night), creating one of the best environments, The bar, with its plush, low seating and fireplace is one my favorite places to be on any date night. You can enjoy a full menu, or nosh on some small plates and get a little primal by eating with your hands. You’re welcome to order an entree too.
