Every single known restaurant in the milky way will be competing for your dining dollar come February 14th. With valentines day still two weeks there’s still just enough time to book a table, but the choice can be overwhelming. Who exactly is offering that je ne sais quoi to impress your special someone. Here are six local restaurants looking to make this valentines one to remember.



For the special day executive chef Nathan Powers will feature special entrée offerings while pastry chef Rebecca Moore has created a special decadent dessert perfect for two – a milk chocolate charlotte with burnt orange caramel, bitter cocoa nib and white chocolate candy heart ($12). Specials will be available on Friday, Feb. 14 and Saturday, Feb. 15. Early reservations are highly recommended and can be made by calling (801) 363-5454.

Bambara, together with the adjacent Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City, is asking guests to share their favorite “Romance Redemption” story on Twitter for a chance to win a dinner for two at Bambara along with a one-night stay at Hotel Monaco.* Guests can submit (in a clean and playful tone) what romantic disaster took place in the past year that only an intimate dinner at Bambara and a night’s stay at Hotel Monaco, will make right. From Feb. 1 until Feb. 14 at midnight MST, guests can tweet their story to @BambaraSLC, using the hashtag #LOVEBambara. One winner will be chosen in a random selection by the restaurant and notified via Twitter.
