Dinner for your Valentine: Bistro Moulin

Next week is Valentine’s Day. For those lovebirds who haven’t made plans yet, all week long I’ll be sharing some of the Valentine’s Day dinners available at local restaurants. Valentine’s Day is a popular night out, so remember to make reservations–nothing stings like getting turned away with your sweetie. And make your reservations sooner rather than later as many local hotspots fill up quickly.

First up, Bistro Moulin is hosting their annual Feast of Saint Valentine. This year, chef Didier Dutertre is preparing a three-course prix fixe diner for $45 per person (plus tax, tip and beverages). The menu features several of my favorites at the Bistro, including the decadent escargots, spinach gnocchi and seafood crepes.

For reservations, call 831-333-1200.
