Getting to the Heart (and Stomach) of Valentine’s Day
Treasure Valley restaurants/businesses can help you show how much you care
Are you convinced Valentine’s Day is nothing more than a money-making scam created by a cabal of greeting card companies? Do you groan when you see heart-shaped boxes of chocolate on store shelves two days after Christmas? Does seeing “I WUV YOU” stitched on a plush pink teddy bear make you feel like poking your eyes out? If you answered yes to any/all of the questions above, you’re not alone. Like others who share your disdain, however, you may have someone significant in your life who looks forward to the heart-filled holiday. So if you want to plan something special for your special someone—or you just want to treat yourself—and don’t know where to start, check out this list of local restaurants/businesses offering ways to celebrate. You can go back to being a cranky conspiracy theorist on Feb. 15.
Addie’s (Boise)—If you’re looking for something a bit unconventional, take your loved one out for breakfast. Who says eggs Benedict can’t be romantic?
Kiwi Shake & Bake (Boise)—You don’t have to fly across the world to enjoy New Zealand cuisine in a modern-yet-cozy setting.
Reel Foods (Boise)—Studies show oysters are an aphrodisiac. Studies probably also show bringing home fresh seafood is key to a happy healthy relationship.
