The Five Most-Romantic Restaurants In Duluth – Superior For Valentine’s Day
Valentine's Day is just around the corner and they always say that the way to someones heart is through their stomach! Face it - a romantic dinner is one of the stereotyped ways that people celebrate Cupid's holiday.
So where should you take your sweetheart?
There are many choices in the Duluth-Superior area and face it if you have a favorite restaurant - that should be your choice on Valentine's Day. However if you're looking for suggestions, here are my Top Five Most-Romantic Restaurants in Duluth-Superior presented in no particular order.
Apostle Supper Club
Located on the 16th (top) floor of the Radisson Hotel in downtown Duluth, the Apostle Supper Club restaurant has many positives going for it - especially if you're looking for a romantic place to eat. First, the restaurant is very elegant in atmosphere with dim lights and dark, plush surroundings. The food is top-notch and if all of that wasn't enough - the whole restaurant revolves - allowing a 360-degree of the Twin Ports metro while you eat. What's good to eat at the Apostle Supper Club? Their steaks are outstanding - especially paired with a side of asparagus and a glass of Cabernet!
The Duluth location of Valentini's is the continuation of a family-legacy that began in 1936 in Chisholm, Minnesota. Those same family recipes that have been passed down through the generations are yours to enjoy at Valentini's Bistro in Hermantown. The atmosphere is elegant and the food is some of the best you've ever had. What's good to eat at Valentini's? Their home-made pastas and gnocchi are superb but I especially recommend the Chicken Florentine Pasta! And don't forget to start with an order of Taco Dago!
Since 1914, the Pickwick has represented fine dining in the Twin Ports for a lot of people. And, it's easy to see why! Excellent food, a classy atmosphere, and service that is on-point. The onion rings and the pepper burger are classics - but the Pickwick also cooks a mean steak.
This Italian restaurant also has it's origins in Chisholm (the owner is a hometown native). A trip to Va Bene is like a meal at a bistro in Italy. The food is inspired, fresh, and delicious. One of the benefits of this restaurant is its smaller dining room which offers an intimate atmosphere. What's good? Their pastas of course - which come with family-inspired home-made sauces.
The lone Superior entry - Eddie's offers an intimate setting that is like taking a trip back in time to a supper club. For more than 50 years, the restaurant has specialized in their fall-off-the-bone, tender ribs - however you'll also find delicious steak and seafood options. The decor is nostalgic in nature with classic car memorabilia all around.
A Few Extras
Really, there are so many good options to choose from in the Twin Ports that it's hard to limit the list to just five. From Bellisio's in Canal Park to the New Scenic Cafe or even the Boat Club Restaurant, many people have their favorite haunts that they like. The most important thing - "you do you".
Some Final Thoughts
All of that said, here's my take on a romantic dinner for Valentine's Day: Stay home! Nothing against any of these restaurants but a homemade dinner at home can be more romantic than sitting in a dining room with a bunch of other people. My advice - stay home for Valentine's Day and take them out to eat at one of these places next week!
