Valentine’s Day is upon us, and those looking for ideas on how to celebrate it are starting to push full-speed ahead. If you’re in the Denton, Texas, area and you’re last-minute planners like us, these spots in town are sure-fire ways to impress your date this year.
Hannah’s Off The Square
Hannah’s Off The Square is one of the area’s finest restaurants, and it’s sure to impress your date. Make sure you make a reservation ahead of time, as they’re sure to be booked for Valentine’s Day. The first-class, eclectic menu at Hannah’s offers everything from seasonal specials to steakhouse classics. The fashionable dining area sets the mood for your Valentine’s Day to create one of the best dining experiences Denton has to offer. We suggest their rosemary-smoked duck breast or sesame seed-crusted ahi tuna, but we’ve never tasted anything less than fantastic here.
Steve’s Wine Bar
If you’re looking for somewhere to go after dinner, try Steve’s Wine Bar. This tasting room is a perfect couple’s destination where you can enjoy live jazz music and a glass of your favorite wine or beer. The tasteful after-dark oasis is a great way to round out a Valentine’s Day if you want to do something after dinner. Whether it’s just you and your date or you and your friends, you’re sure to have a pleasant time at this wine bar.
Old Irish Bed & Breakfast
Do something different this year by booking a room at the Old Irish Bed & Breakfast. There are multiple cottages and rooms to choose from and plenty to do at this bed and breakfast. Immerse yourself in manicured nature underneath old oak trees and set out a picnic. Meet and feed the alpacas on the nearby farm. Breakfast is served on Saturdays and Sundays at the Paca Road Inn, or in bed with advanced notice.
940’s Kitchen & Cocktails
Another chic and popular restaurant in the area is 940’s Kitchen & Cocktails. Their picturesque and hip atmosphere lends itself perfectly well to creating an unforgettable Valentine’s Day dinner. Their neo-American fare is a sensory adventure, and their mixologist-inspired cocktails are expertly crafted. We suggest sharing an hors d’oeuvre of mushroom bruschetta before their seared salmon or eggplant bolognese.
Japanese cuisine is one of our go-to date night spots, and we think it works just as well on Valentine’s Day night. For some of the best Japanese food in Denton, head to Keiichi. The head chef is skilled in both Japanese and Italian cuisine, creating food that’s difficult to find in many other restaurants. Japanese-style ribs, Tasmanian sea trout, maybe lasagna — every visit is a new experience. Be advised that this restaurant is quite small and very popular, so you need to make a reservation as soon as possible.
With so many romance-inspiring options in the Denton area, you’re sure to find something that will interest you and your date. You don’t have to get wildly creative to show your date a great time. Stick to the classics, and you’ll do just fine.
