Valentine’s Day. A Hallmark holiday or simply a chance to show that special
someone they really do mean the world to you? Dub us hopeless romantics, but
we’ll go for the latter. Beautiful floral bouquets, softly spoken “I love yous,” intimate
dinners for two – our hearts are a fluttering already…
And in our push for romance, we’ve come up with the perfect lineup of restaurants
around Glenmore and Highland Park destined to set the sparks flying between you
and your sweetheart any night of the week.
Don Quixote you may not be, but we think you’ll come pretty darn close wining and
dining your sweetheart at White Rock’s Pearl on the Rock. Chef Jeremy Keighley
continues his culinary celebration of life on the coast, preparing stirring, passionate
dishes that connect both land and sea. Couple that with a striking view overlooking
Semiahmoo Bay, and we think you’re set for a night of amore.
Relaxed and refined.
Sometimes a vibrant room filled with an eclectic group of people is all you’re looking
for to guarantee a great night out. Laughter is, after all, one of the best aphrodisiacs,
and it’s nice to feel at ease in an open environment where you can laugh out loud.
Try sipping on a few lively libations at U Lounge – walking distance from Glenmore and Highland Park – to get those romantic juices flowing.
Try something new.
The trepidation of trying something new is sometimes the ultimate way to bring
two people together. So why not test your palate and create some new memories at
Senses Fusion Cuisine on Marine Drive? It’s only short drive or cab from Glenmore
and Highland Park. The menu is laid out tapas-style, so you can cuddle up extra-cozy
and share as many dishes that take your fancy. Cupid will be happy, to be sure.
There’s nothing quite like the combination of a glass of wine and the sound of
someone tickling the ivories to get you in the mood. Which is why we love the
idea of heading to The Hazelemere Dining Room at Hazelmere Golf Course for Valentine’s Day. House pianist Josef Kaliostro takes to the piano every night at 6 p.m.
to serenade guests as they dine.
