Valentine’s victuals

5 spots for a romantic meal


February is a time when love is in the air and dinner reservations are de rigueur. It’s Valentine’s month.


Choosing the right restaurant for the holiday can be daunting. But whether you and your date are traditionalists looking for classic, fine-dining fare or adventurous eaters in search of something more modern, local restaurants are ready to deliver. These are just a few to consider:


Grille 620
Turf Valley Towne Square, 11099 Resort Road #304,
Ellicott City. 410-203-0620. 


At this buzzy Turf Valley restaurant, Chef Fabio Mura’s menu features American classics with a Mediterranean twist— think grilled seafood paired with hummus and steaks served with roasted cippolini onions. For Valentine’s Day, Mura and his team will offer a four-course prix-fixe menu, but if you don’t make it to the restaurant on the holiday itself, don’t despair: dishes from the Valentine’s Day menu will also be available as specials the following weekend.


Food Plenty
12250 Clarksville Pike, Clarksville. 410-531-0411.


One of the newest and most celebrated additions to Howard County’s dining scene, Food Plenty is a solid Valentine’s Day choice for food
