Valentine’s Day

WSVN — Listen up. You’ve got one week to make plans for Valentine’s Day. In tonight’s Style File, 7’s Belkys Nerey has fine-tuned some unique ideas for a romantic date night.

Nothing sets the mood for romance like music.

Emily Burster: “It’s going to be sultry. Everything you want your date night to be.”

A great choice for love this Valentine’s is a night at the new Ted’s on the seventh floor of the YoungArts Tower Building on Biscayne Boulevard. Listen to live music from YoungArts alums and soak up gorgeous views from this high-floor lounge.

Emily Burster: “We have 360-degree projections that actually feature artwork from YoungArts alumni. The views? You look out from the bar, you see the bay.”

The lounge is small and intimate, creating the perfect backdrop for couples.

Lauren Fitzpatrick: “Very romantic, very cozy. And he only takes me to the very best restaurants, so he surprised me with this one.”

Belkys Nerey: “So he’s a keeper?”

Lauren Fitzpatrick: “Most definitely.”

The best part of V-Day at Ted’s? No pricey prix fixe menu. Lovebirds can share global plates like spicy shrimp bao buns or crispy calamari. Or indulge in a few specials, like filet mignon with mushroom ragout or an aphrodisiac like Key West shrimp ceviche.

What’s Valentine’s day without a little bubbly? If you celebrate here at Ted’s, the bubbly and the sexy chocolate strawberries are on the house.

For another heavenly evening your sweetie won’t forget, head south to Schnebly Redland’s Winery.

Dewey Lasasso: “You have the wine, you have the experience of being on the farm, and you have the food. Everything you need is here.”

Chef Dewey LoSasso is the new culinary director at the winery, and he’s igniting a night of passion on the farm. Your first option: Grab a blanket for some live music on the lawn with a picnic basket.

Dewey LoSasso: “You can have a picnic basket for $125 for two people, some sliced filet mignon, some spiny lobster salad, a chocolate torte, a special reserve bottling of Love Potion No. 9, lychee, some secret ingredients.”

Or step it up a notch with a view.

Dewey LoSasso: “For level two, we’re doing by our waterfall tiki. You have this beautiful deck overlooking our waterfall. We’re doing a four-course tasting menu for $125 a person, with four wine flights.”

You can even snag a table for two dining among the farm’s passion fruit vines. Here’s to love!

Chef Dewey’s new restaurant at Schnebly opens on Valentine’s Day weekend, and will be open every Friday and Saturday. You will want to make reservations for Valentine’s Day now.
