Ten Valentine's Day Dinners in Miami Under $100 per Person

Categories: Holidays

Money Mind Learning
Valentine's Day dinner. It's a requirement.
Maybe it's fitting that Valentine's Day's beginnings were filled with tales of saints and martyrs. If you feel forced to celebrate the day with poems, hearts, and flowers, blame it on 18th-century England, where the day evolved into what we now recognize as the opportunity for confectioners and florists (and Hallmark) to make a killing.

Of course, Valentine's Day is also celebrated with a romantic dinner for two, with nearly every restaurant in town offering special dishes for lovers. From free gifts to live music (and plenty of chocolate for dessert), there's a meal guaranteed to whisper, "Be mine." Plus, we've selected each dinner for value. Not one costs more than $100 per person -- because a lovely dinner doesn't have to mean taking out a second mortgage on your condo. That way, you'll have some pocket change left over for a card and some flowers.

Prices exclude tax and gratuities, and reservations are strongly suggested.

RA Sushi
Here's the scenario: You've finally got a date for Valentine's Day, but you're strapped for cash. No problem! RA Sushi is offering a three-course dinner for two for only $30. The offer is good Friday, February 14, through Sunday, February 16, and includes an appetizer, entrée, and dessert. With that deal, you can even spring for a bottle of wine.

Area 31
For the big day, executive chef Wolfgang Birk offers special à la carte items, including five-spiced poached foie gras ($22), seared diver scallop ($19), and butter-poached lobster ($29). Guests can take home special edible chocolate body paint, and five lucky tables (chosen at random) will receive an additional gift from Exhale spa.

RUMBAR, Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne
All you I Love Lucy fans can channel the happy television couple with a celebration that includes a four-piece Latin band playing all of Ricky's hits and a chocolate buffet that Lucy would approve of. Complimentary rum tastings run from 7 to 8 p.m., and a chocolate buffet costs $22 per person. No reservations required.
