Yes, there are some people (i.e. not us), who have had their Valentine’s Day reservations squared away for months now. But personal propensities towards procrastination aside, our main dilemma with holiday dining involves jacked up prices and derivative menus, featuring heart-shaped molten chocolate cakes accented with saccharine drizzles of raspberry coulis.
