Finding just the right restaurant is as important as cupid's arrow on Valentine's Day

Looking for a romantic Valentine’s Day dining experience in the Palm Beaches? Here is a round-up of some of the most romantic restaurants throughout the area to take your loved one this February 14, prepared for Discover The Palm Beach by Cristyle Egitto of EatPalmBeach.com

1. Evo Italian, Jupiter, FL
 
Evo is a white linen Italian restaurant offering authentic dishes alongside a lengthy wine list along the Jupiter/Tequesta border. For Valentine’s Day, what is sexier than a perfect pouch of burrata or recreating “Lady and the Tramp” with a spaghetti noodle? Sip a Super Tuscan in the glow of candlelight and enjoy the company of your loved one while delighting in a Bronzino di Oreganata or Filetto Mignon. Short for “evolution,” Evo chef and owner, Erik Pettersen, showcases his Sicilian and Italian heritage by building on his foundation of family recipes.

2. Café Chardonnay, Palm Beach Gardens, FL
 


Along the PGA Blvd corridor is the tried and true gem of Palm Beach Gardens, Café Chardonnay. Serving creative American cuisine in a romantic setting for over 30 years, Café Chardonnay is the work of Frank and Gigi Eucalitto. Dishes like the Macadamia Crusted Snapper and Rack of Lamb have been staples with desserts like the Vanilla Bean Crème Brulee’ for decades. The restaurant has partnered with local farmers, ranchers and fisherman to provide a fresh, farm-to-table experience and offers a bar area, dining room, loft and outdoor seating. Book early and good luck getting Table 12.

3. Kitchen, West Palm Beach, FL
 


Kitchen, located in the Dixie Corridor just south of downtown, is the work of husband and wife team, Chef Matthew and Aliza Byrne. Modeled after the idea of welcoming guests into their home to enjoy a meal, the dining room is intimate and monochromatically chic. The vibe is sexy but elegant while the bathrooms feature cheeky black and white photography. The American contemporary menu includes dishes like their innovative take on “bacon, eggs and toast” and Chicken Schntizel. Don’t miss the Ahi, Mango and Avocado starter and treat yourself to the Coconut Cake for dessert.

4. The Breakers, Palm Beach, FL
 


For an array of dining options on the island, look no further than The Breakers. With venues like the sexy Seafood Bar featuring a live aquarium bar, cozy Italian Restaurant. swanky HMF, exotic Echo and handsome Flagler Steakhouse, there is something for every look, feel and craving. The Breakers features a stunning waterfront property presenting the opportunity to stroll through the gorgeous halls or along the Atlantic Ocean. I recommend oysters at The Seafood Bar, dinner at Flagler Steakhouse or Echo and a cocktail at HMF for a well-rounded evening on the property.
