Valentine's Day Recommendations from FoodE

Where are the best places to go for a special Valentine's dinner at Easton?

The Melting Pot is touted as one of the top romantic restaurants in the country. It is more of an evening affair and quite the dining experience! I would say dining at a French bistro, like Bon Vie, could be a very romantic setting, as well. Just imagine sipping a French wine paired with some fabulous cheeses before dinner - je aimed le fromage (that's "I love cheese" in French)! Mitchell's Ocean Club is another perfect spot for celebrating a special occasion (including Valentine's Day). Their butter cake for two is the perfect dessert to split!

If surf and turf is more your style, Smith & Wollensky has a nice variety of steaks and seafood to choose from, as well! And lastly, you can never go wrong with Cooper's Hawk. The wine selection and parings there are second to none!If surf and turf is more your style, Smith & Wollensky has a nice variety of steaks and seafood to choose from, as well!

Valentine's Day Recommendations from MrE

Where's the best place to go for newer couples celebrating Valentine's Day at Easton?

If you're worried about conversation stalling and those awkward silences popping up, play it safe by starting off your evening at a place like Columbus Funny Bone or AMC Easton 30. Going to a show first will give you time to laugh and get comfortable with each other. Then, if you decide to wine and dine her afterward, you'll have some concrete conversation topics.

When it comes to making reservations, do you know of any restaurants that are "hidden gems" at Easton that might not be as packed…for us procrastinators?

Bottom line is make your reservation NOW! Your date is worth it. However, if you're determined to procrastinate, then you might have more luck at some more casual restaurants. BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse, Ted's Montana Grill, Rusty Bucket and World of Beer all might be decent bets for last-minute planners.

Valentine's Day Recommendations from MomE

Are there any places at Easton to pick up cute Valentine's Day cards for the kids?

Paper Source has the cutest ideas for Valentine's Day cards! If I'm able to plan ahead, I shop the sale rack at Paper Source after Valentine's Day for next year's supply. Their DIY experts are also a great resource for ideas on creating unique Valentines. Calling the store to see what workshops they have coming up is a great idea. A winter day can turn into the perfect craft time for you and your little ones!

Are there any stores that will be hosting special Valentine's Day activities and/or events?

Kids eat free on Valentine's Day at Rusty Bucket, and they even get a cool kiddie cocktail to add to the festivities.

Valentine's Day Recommendations from TrendE

Galentine's Day has become quite popular! If you were to spend a day with the girls, what would be on your list of things to do at Easton?

Ah, so much to do! I would do lunch or dinner with lots of shopping. Depending on the mood, we could either see a movie or go to Columbus Funny Bone for some laughs.

What's your idea of the perfect date night?

The perfect date night to me would be an evening of enjoying each other's company. A cooking class at Sur La Table would be really fun, followed by dessert and drinks at Cooper's Hawk. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very cozy and romantic.

What's your idea of the perfect Valentine's Day? We'd love to hear all about it! Let us know in the comments.
