#VDAY: 10 Restaurants That Will Make Feb 14 More Memorable
If you aren’t aware already, the hawkers at the signals with heart-shaped balloons will confirm that Valentine’s Day is around the corner. There is a constant battle between those who think this day is utter BS and those who celebrate it right from the so-called Rose Day. But there is no harm in celebrating it anyway, right? After all, restaurants do have special menus for this day, a more romantic setting, and hello, discounts!
Whether your plan is to go on a date with that special one or attack the buffet with your gang, these restaurants from the 5 major metros will actually make you appreciate the 14th of this month. Since love is in the air, you might as well go along with it! From the usual candlelit dinners and massive lunch spreads to scrumptious breakfasts, there is something for everyone. Provided, of course, you’re as much of a foodie as we are.
