Romantic Valentine's Day Dining Options in the Lakes Region

Romantic DinnerValentine’s Day is just around the corner. Every couple has its own February 14th holiday tradition. This celebration of love was first documented in the 1400s by way of a charter introduced by Charles VI of France. The festivities in the charter included poetry competitions, dancing, song, jousting, and a feast. While the days of jousting are well behind us in modern day society (with the exception of the occasional medieval fair) song, dance, poetry, and food are celebrated with equal passion and fervor. 

Keep the passion alive in your relationship with the simple act of making a proper romantic dinner reservation. It’s easy to do. There are a number of wonderful restaurants to begin a new tradition with your loved one. Here are some excellent romantic Valentine’s Day dining options in the lakes region of New Hampshire.

The New Woodshed: Reservations are required for dining in the Barn at this upscale Moultonborough establishment. Begin your meal with Escargot, a Jumbo Lump Crab Cake, or selections from the Woodshed Raw Bar. Entrees selections include 21 Day Aged Beef cuts and a New Zealand Free Range Lamb Rack (w/Lyn’s secret sauce). Compound butters and sauces are available, and always complimentary. 

O Steaks & Seafood: This Laconia establishment will treat Valentine’s Day couples to steakhouse delicacies and exquisite desserts. You can begin your meal with Ahi Tuna, Oysters Rockefeller, or Laughing Bird Shrimp.
