Miami's Best Valentine's Day Dinners

Categories: Holidays
Tuyo via Facebook
Valentine's Day is upon us once again, and soon we'll all be scrambling to get flowers and chocolates and godawful stuffed animals to show our significant others we give a damn. (By the way, if you do, skip the stuffed animal and go for something original, like a live iguana or a Maserati, depending on your inclination.)

We've compiled a list of Miami restaurants offering prix fixes for next Tuesday night's romantic dinner (we also included some menu highlights). Now there's no excuse to forget to make a reservation.

Be fruitful and try not to multiply, you Romeos and Juliets.
