Valetines Day Restaurants

Sooooo, where is everyone going with their significant other?

I'm looking for some ideas on restaurants in the city.... I myself am from the city but am kind of lost for ideas at the moment. I might do a nice Japanese restaurant.. but i'm up for suggestions.

I have a few back up restaurants that i've made reservations to already... NIU, Japanese fusion restaurnt in Streeterville. Tsukasa in the burbs...

I was going to do Japonais.. but that place is prolly booked.

A buddy of mine down in Orlando is good friends with the owner. He suggested I try it out for V-Day.

did you mean mai tai's? at first I thought you were talking about a girl or some sorta dish. Yeah those are good, they give you the cups too. I used to watch dumbfucks walk outta there with a stack of 10-15 cups each asking for their car. I would offer to call a cab for them and told them they could leave their car in the lot overnight but they stupidly declined and drove off.

I really won't tell people my favorite restaurants....they're too small and cozy and if they got crowded I'd be pissed. That said, I'd much prefer staying home on Vday; everything gets too crowded, and that's not romantic.

I get the gallon of mai tai to go. They give you the mix in a gallon jug and then a bottle of the rum to add when you are ready to make them. shake and chill and you have a party baby. Man that is my favorite drink!!!!!!!!

I've eaten at babareeba a ton.. I admit the Paella is amazing.. but Cafe Iberico is much better and cheaper.
