Valentine’s Day choices

Residents at the Batch Yard are not far from some romantic hot spots serving up all kinds of love this Valentine’s Day. All across Boston – from the North End, to the Back Bay and over to the Seaport – there are plenty of dining options. Here are five spots serving up something special.

24 Fleet St., Boston 617-227-1577
The North End spells romance, no matter where you go, but we suggest Prezza. Executive chef and owner, Anthony Caturano, plans to prepare three exclusive specialty items in addition to his regular menu. On Valentine’s Day choose from baked oysters ($15), saffron arancini ($16), and rotisserie chicken ($26).
Available February 14 only between 5:30-10 p.m.

Del Frisco’s
250 Northern Avenue
Boston, 617-345-3906
Be bold – as they say at Del Frisco’s and jump on over to the Seaport. Offer your sweetheart the class and sophistication of Del Frisco’s for Valentine’s Day – and fabulous food of course. Enjoy a special menu featuring a variety of Del Frisco’s fan favorites. Want to avoid the crowds on the 14th altogether? Then visit anytime between February 13th-15th to try the special Valentine’s Day feature: A Delicious 8oz. Filet and Lobster ($79)

Top of the Hub
800 Boylston St., Boston 617-536-1775
Location, location, location can also work for you on Valentine’s Day. Ambience and a view to die for is the bird’s-eye view of Boston you’ll get from the Top of the Hub.
