As Valentine’s Day 2015 approaches, please understand that if you have a sweetheart that you want to take somewhere special, time is running out to get a reservation!
There are so many great restaurants to sample and things to do in this town, there is no way to list everything in one post. But I can select a few things that might make what is really just another ordinary day of the year into a more romantic and fun time.
You can’t shoot a love-dart in Wallingford without hitting an eatery, so I am highlighting a few that seem like great places to take a date. I am always looking for new spots, so please send me more of your favorite date spots in the comments below!
Here are a few that I have linked right to their reservation pages to make your task that much easier.
Art of the Table – Celebrating food with a menu crafted by chef Dustin Ronspies that changes regularly to reflect a full range of seasonal, local produce, with all items made from scratch.
