During the 18th century, Saint Valentine's keys were given to lovers as tokens, symbolizing the giver's desire that his or her heart be unlocked. While romantic, such gestures cannot compare to the modern day tradition of wining and dining. Because nothing acts like bolt-cutters to the heart like a four course meal. At LARK on the Park, an enticing parade of dishes is planned in celebration of V-Day, with mains like duck confit and porterhouse steak, and desserts of dark chocolate terrine and orange cake with cream cheese mousse. The cost is $85 per person. Optional wine pairings will be available for an additional $45. For reservations and additional information, call 214-855-5275.
