Love is in the air and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Why not mark the occasion with a special dinner date? In a city like Baltimore, you should have no trouble finding an incredible restaurant to wine and dine with your sweetheart. Here’s a closer look at five Baltimore restaurants that serve as first-rate Valentine’s Day destinations.
1500 S Hanover Street
Baltimore, MD 21230
A South Baltimore favorite, Bluegrass Tavern offers a comfortable, airy setting that is ideal for any Valentine’s Day dinner. Bluegrass Tavern is known for their contemporary Southern-inspired American fare that is prepared to perfection. Dingy, dive bar tavern it is not. The menu, which includes a great selection of appetizers and dishes like smoked fried chicken, crab cakes, braised short ribs and duck, is sure to satiate hunger pangs.
Bluegrass Tavern is also known for their bourbon selection — they even have a bourbon club. For newer couples, the tavern’s cozy, neighborhood setting makes it the perfect spot to talk and get to know each other better. Good food, drinks and conversation? You’re in for a superb Valentine’s Day.
2. Fogo de Chão
600 E Pratt Street
Baltimore, MD 21202
Fogo de Chão, a Brazilian steakhouse by the waterfront, serves exceptional beef, seafood and much more. It’s Valentine’s Day, so why not indulge in a few cocktails or dessert? Flan, creme brulee, cheesecake and their famous papaya cream are just a few ways to satisfy a sweet tooth. Sit, chat and enjoy a special night out on the town. Guests who dine between February 10 and 14 will receive a complimentary dining card valid for a complimentary lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch. All the more reason for another date night!
3. Bar Vasquez
1425 Aliceanna Street
Baltimore, MD 21231
Bar Vasquez, an Argentine bar and restaurant, opened in Harbor East in late 2016. It brings the fresh, lively flavors of Argentina to Charm City with empanadas, ceviches and meat plates that perfectly represent a region known for its ranching culture. At Bar Vasquez, guests can enjoy a range of authentic dishes, including grilled morcilla and chorizo, grilled calamari, Argentinian shrimp, Uruguayan filet and more.
Bar Vasquez also boasts an extensive drink menu, which includes seasonal cocktails. Whiskey lovers will enjoy a round at the upstairs bar, where the certified bourbon master can help walk you through Bar Vasquez’s length whiskey list. Its elegant, loungey style makes it a romantic spot for Valentine’s Day.
