Valentine’s Day dining guide

There’s little over a week left before Valentine’s Day, and if you and your special someone still haven’t made plans, we’ve curated a list of special deals and menus that area restaurants are offering in the spirit of true love.

Valentine’s Day is one of the biggest dining days of the year, and Richmond’s restaurants are coming on strong with the prix fixe menus. Take a look below at some options available for the 14th and the weekend before. Remember to check back, because we will add menus as they pop-up over the week.
