Valentine’s Day is just over a week away, and there are plenty of places in our neighborhood to celebrate.

Several local restaurants are offering special menu items for neighbors wanting to skip the dishes.

Here are a few places to consider. And don’t forget to read these love stories from East Dallas neighbors.

Anise at The Village is offering a dinner for two, priced at $120, with an optional wine pairing of $30 per person. The three-course meal includes a choice of two mezze plates, one large plate (lamb, branzino or cauliflower and castelfranco), one side (saffron rice or grilled broccolini) and a chocolate tahini tart for dessert. These are available Feb. 11-13, but not on Valentine’s Day because the restaurant is closed on Mondays.
