Valentine's Day is getting closer--where to romantically celebrate in the Toledo area ? This is the day to impress, pullout the stops and make it special. A day to remember. So where in Toledo can that happen? Well you'll have to figure that out for yourself. That's the whole point, right?
Okay, here are a few ideas to get you started. Treo Restaurant in Sylvania does a funky kind of elegant. Quirky style with a crooked grin. Fool proof food with style for the Day includes prime rib and lobster tail with a delightful Chandon Rose sparkling wine, from Napa Valley, CA.
A powerhouse to please the man in your life is Toledo's stalwart Mancy's Steakhouse. You can't go wrong with the Filet, Porterhouse, or T-bone partnered with the 2008 Beaulieu Vineyard, a straightforward Napa Cab, or even the 2009 chateau Les Terrasses, a young Bordeaux if feeling adventurous. The outside-the-box choice is the Lamb Chops and a glass of 2009 Estancia--A pleasant Central Coast Pinot Nior.
Your Sushi savour will swoon at the 5-star Kyoto Ka on Central Ave. where you can sometimes snag a complementary hot Sake while waiting for your take out. My choice is the Kanisu Salad, Shrimp Tempura, and Sashimi Eel. That's right, Eel--I said it!
Five Guys Burgers and Fries A spot where you can fall in love; or just remember why you'll always be in love with burgers and fries--whether the Bacon Burger, or for the slender-focused a Veggie Sandwich, or a childhood favorite, Kosher Dog--as simple and beautiful as it gets in All-American food.
That's enough, Toledo has a range of wonderful spots and for whatever taste or expense you can imagine. I'll leave with this enigmatic quote, complements of Fabulous Food Quotes.
“A man taking basil from a woman will love her always.”
- Sir Thomas Moore
