Not that we need to remind you, but there happens to a date-driven holiday around the corner. To celebrate the day of romance, we’ve compiled a collection of neighborhood restaurants that have the most seductive tables in town — plus some come-hither food.

Washington Park: Cafe Marmotte
With its floor-to-ceiling windows, country-French accents, warm woods, and ambient lighting, it’s no surprise that canoodling Francophiles can’t get enough of this delightful Washington Park romancer. Technique-driven, seasonal French cooking intersects with a lovely, albeit luxuriantly priced, a wine list that bows to small producers.

Valentine’s Day: Regular menu, plus an amuse-bouche and a glass of Kir Royale.

290 S. Downing St.; 303-999-0395

Aurora: Megenagna
Off-the-beaten-path ethnic haunts are always a good bet for a late-night rendezvous, and this sweet spot in Aurora unleashes the city’s best Ethiopian food in a soft-lit sanctuary of racy red walls and tables topped with thatched roofs. There’s definitely something poetic about touching hands while you both reach for the superb kitfo.

Valentine’s Day: Regular menu.



306 S. Ironton St.; 720-532-0266

Park Hill: Tables
At this cozy and charmingly quirky Park Hill neighborhood favorite, couples converse over sweetbreads, quail and seared scallops. Lovely, low-lit quarters are fitted with farmhouse tables, mismatched chairs, reclaimed barn doors, and countrified accents. A robust selection of off-the-radar wines, including a section dedicated to “Tiny Bubbles,” adds to the allure.

Valentine’s Day: Four-course menu, inclusive of a starter, small plate, entree, and dessert, for $75 per person, exclusive of tax and gratuity.

2267 Kearney St.; 303-388-0299

Cherry Creek North: Barolo Grill
Ryan Fletter’s oh-so-romantic sanctum is a cherished spot for celebrations and delightful plates of Northern Italian cuisine punctuated with luxurious ingredients (foie gras and black truffles). And if you happen to be marking Valentine’s Day with your flame, the two-top that parallels the fireplace is the table to book.

Valentine’s Day: Five-course prix fixe menu.

3030 E. Sixth Ave.; 303-393-1040
