Best vegetarian places in Chicago

A post shared by RAW (@chicagorawfoods) on Feb 2, 2019 at 7:15am PST
Some vegans go above and beyond and don’t even want their food cooked. Others just know some of the best salads are served at raw restaurants. If that’s what you’re looking for, head to either of Raw’s two locations, in the French Market or on the Gold Coast. It also does great superfood smoothies, juices, and takeaway options, making them a popular lunch spot for the downtown crowd. 4. Original Soul Vegetarian
Original Soul Vegetarian on East 75th Street on the South Side has been doing 100 percent vegan soul food classics for over 30 years. Starting from a belief that food is medicine, this vegetarian institution has won over legions of loyal customers who return for favorites like mac and cheese, plates of steamed greens, and BBQ. 5. Kāl’ish A post shared by Kāl’ish Plant Based Diner (@kalishvegan) on Jan 17, 2019 at 1:41pm PST
Uptown-based Kāl’ish calls itself a plant-based diner and one look at the menu confirms it. It’s been open since Uptown was still one of the more dangerous neighborhoods on the North Side, and it’s one of the local businesses that have helped the area to improve without losing its identity. Kāl’ish is totally vegan and has menu items guaranteed to satisfy your cravings. Vegan burgers, grilled cheese, Mexican, fried chicken sandwiches, and an all-day breakfast menu straight out of a corner diner will leave you full but ready to visit again. 6. Sultan’s Market
In the heart of the Wicker Park neighborhood, Sultan’s Market has been making great food since 1995, before the neighborhood was thought of as “cool.” Sultan’s serves meat, but its specialty, and what put it on the map in the first place, is the amazing falafel. It also does excellent homemade Middle-Eastern favorites like hummus, baba ganoush, and tahini, and it has a great salad bar. Sultan’s has a second location in Lincoln Park now, and a meal here will leave you full without emptying your wallet. 7. Clever Rabbit A post shared by clever rabbit (@cleverrabbitchicago) on Jan 17, 2019 at 9:49am PST
Another great option that has something for meat eaters and vegans alike, Clever Rabbit along Division Street in Wicker Park has a veggie-centric menu and beautifully presented dishes. Everything about Clever Rabbit is design-forward, from the food to the decor, but the restaurant’s Instagram-worthiness doesn’t come at the expense of the food or the quality of the ingredients. It also has an innovative wine and cocktail list. 8. The Chicago Diner
With the tagline “Meat free since ‘83,” the Chicago Diner is an OG in the Chicago vegetarian dining scene. If you’re craving diner favorites like burgers, a Reuben, and milkshakes, you’ll find some of the best vegan versions here. You can find the diner at its original location in Lakeview, as well as at a new branch in Logan Square. Oh, and it has a full bar so if you’re craving a vegan White Russian, this is the place to go. 9. Majani A post shared by One Eleven Food Hall (@oneelevenchi) on Oct 26, 2018 at 9:57am PDT
Majani serves up soulful vegan cuisine to a loyal clientele in the South Shore neighborhood on the South Side. Majani is Swahili for “green,” and this restaurant provides a seasonal menu sourced from local gardens and farms. The menu will get your mouth watering instantly with dishes such as rice and beans, collard greens, and cornbread, plus a delectable crab cake sandwich, daily specials, and a great burger. If you’re in the neighborhood (and South Shore is definitely worth checking out), you should definitely stop in. 10. Uru Swati
India might have the world’s best culture of vegetarian cuisine, so it’s no surprise that vegetarians and vegans often seek it out. Uru Swati along Devon Avenue in Chicago’s Little India neighborhood is the go-to for non-meat eaters in Chicago. Like most Indian restaurants, it does use cheese, butter, and yogurt products, but its menu is fully vegetarian. Anyone wishing to eat vegan will have no problem avoiding the dairy items, just ask the helpful staff.

20 Montreal Restaurants Where You Can Eat A Lot For Under $20

Alexandra Toutant · February 14, 2019 0 shares It’s no secret that Montreal is home to a lot of restaurants. This means that, no matter what cuisine or price point you are interested in, there’s a restaurant out there for you. Sometimes, between paychecks, you want to eat out, even though you know you probably shouldn’t. This list is for all of those days — days when you want to compromise on price but not taste. And, sure, you can step in to any café and order a cheap sandwich, but I want to make this list about more than that. All of these retaurants are places where you can sit in and eat a proper meal for less than $20 before tax and tip, because I don’t know how much you like to tip (though it should be at least 15%, and probably closer to 18%, ahem). TL;DR Below is a list of tried-and-true restaurants that will give you great value for you money, and where you can order a plate of food for under $20. Le Warehouse Le Warehouse is a chain of bars that are known not just for their great cocktails but also a really good selection of snacks and meals. Everything on the menu is priced at $6, from onion rings to sandwiches. This is independent of whether or not you’re drinking (though you should definitely try their cocktails). If you’re feeling peckish, split a few snacks between friends. If you’re really hungry, grab a meal! I recommend the pieroggies. Website Pho Bang New York This restaurant is one of the best places to grab pho in the city. Their bowls are huge and only $8.50. They even have vegetarian options! The best part is the piping hot free tea you get as soon as you sit at one of the long, communal tables. Website Cinko Another bar with cheap eats, Cinko is a Plateau favourite. This restaurant offers plates at $5.50 if you order a drink. Portions are generous and the fare is very creative! Website Patati Patata The well-known poutine joint offers so much more than the classic Quebec dish. They have fantastic, cheap burgers and great French onion soup. Not to mention that everything on their breakfast menu is fantastic. Breakfast poutine? I think yes. Also, shoutout to the uber-friendly staff that is nice to all of the drunk people getting food after a night out on weekends. Website Lan Zhou Noodles Featuring fresh, hand-pulled noodles, every dish on this restaurant’s menu is fanstastic. Some of their best dishes include their noodle soups and dan dan noodles. Stop by at the specialty grocery store right next door after for some fun treats you can’t buy anywhere else. Website Bocadillo’s Bocadillo’s specialty is their areperas, Venezuelan sandwiches made with corn bread. The sandwiches are served warm with a variety of fillings and a side of fries or a salad. They’ll only set you back around $12, which makes it an all-around win. I highly recommend the Pabellón. Website Garage Beirut Many of the plates here will get you very close to the $20 limit, but if you head over to this authentic Lebanese restaurant with a few friends, you will make it work. All of the plates are meant to be shared, so split a few between friends. One of the most delicious and filling meals on the menu is the Fatteh Hummus. So. GOOD. Website Qing Hua Dumplings are usually a good option for those of us who are on a budget. However, cheap food doesn’t mean bland food, and Qing Hua goes to show that. Their two locations have a pretty extensive menu. Because their menu is so reasonable priced, at around $11 per plate of ~15 dumplings, you can enjoy an super filling meal at a great price. Website Yokato Yokabai This is hands down the best ramen place in the city, and I will fight anyone who thinks otherwise. Try one of their gigantic ramen bowls that won’t set you back more than $15. Vegetarian friendly! Website Santropol If you haven’t tried this gem of a café, head over there RIGHT NOW to try one of their amazing sandwiches made with thick slices of homemade bread. Almost everything on the menu is vegetarian, and dishes like the Chaucer sandwich will convert even the most tofu-adverse amongst us. You even have the option to combine a smaller soup with half a sandwich, if you can’t make up your mind between the two. Do yourself a favour and add the carrot cake to your bill, which will bring you to just under $20. Website Nilufar Located in the Golden Square Mile, this restaurant is a great place to grab a quick bite to eat. Their falafels are famous across Montreal, with tons of options for under $5. Website Parma You can’t just walk by Parma without grabbing a heaping plate of pasta. This popular haunt serves up classic Italian dishes at super reasonable prices. Most items should ring in at under $10. Grab a slice of pizza next time you pass by! Website El Rey Del Taco This Mexican restaurant serves up fantastic fare. The Mile End favourite serves everything from quesadillas to tostadas. And nothing on the menu costs more than $15, which leaves you with enough to buy churros, too. Website Chez Toussignant Located in Little Italy, this bistro serves up the best Québécois fare around. Most items on the menu are less than $10, which means that you can even buy two comfort food items. Website Bombay Mahal Bombay Mahal is a great place if you’re in the mood for authentic Indian food. They serve a variety of dishes, my personal favourite being the Palak Paneer. Their lunch specials only cost $10.50, for which you’ll get to sample a few different dishes along with rice and naan. Not to mention that the restaurant is BYOB, which makes for even more savings. Website Eduardo’s Speaking of BYOBs, this list is not complete without a mention for this great Italian place. The cozy plateau restaurant serves amazing Italian food. And their portions are huge, so a little money really goes a long way. Website Thali Cuisine Indienne This eatery, which is another great Indian restaurant, is located by Concordia. They have great options for vegetarians and non-vegetarians, alike. And their meals, which come with naan, rice, salad, and papadam, cost a little over $10. Website Arepera I’ve already mentioned Bocadillos earlier in the article, but a place should be reserved for this other great Venezuelan restaurant. Located in the plateau, they have a more expansive seating area. And vegan options! Website Stash Cafe This restaurant may look very fancy, but this is not reflected in the cost. This Old Port eatery serves Polish food an an awesome price. You won’t find a nicer place to eat in the Old Port! Website Terasse Saint-Sacrament Rounding off the list is a great, raunchy Plateau bar. Their food is classic bar food, but taken to the next level, and compliments their great selection of wines and beers that they serve alongside their meals. Try their tartare!

Surprisingly Good.

For urban Indians and foreigners visiting Indore, the name Sayaji is not a familiar hotel brand. However, I would strongly recommend this hotel located in Central Indore. It is a well appointed 4/5 star hotel with all the trappings that a visitor familiar with comfortable hotels would seek. The service standard is amongst the better ones I have enjoyed in my many stays across the globe. It needs special mention and my special appreciation. The staff is polite, attentive and eager to please. The front office, the room service, the restaurants – all have great personnel. The housekeeping has to work harder to achieve the level set by their colleagues in other departments. There is a travel desk that will book you a hotel cab or airline and train tickets just as promptly as they would book you an Uber or an OLA or even the humble auto-rickshaw. Every floor has a reception counter which is manned from 7am to 10pm. The billing is completed there upon check-out. Dial 9 and you will be connected to your floor reception. Effective responses and quick turnaround make it a good investment. The billing at the reception is quick and detailed and they patiently fill in any blanks that you may seem to encounter and enquire about. The staff is alert, young and energetic and as millennials go this lot is caring and warm. Thank you Partha. We attended the wedding reception of our daughter in Sayaji, organised by the groom’s family. The open air area was very comfortable for about 300 guests. That area can easily accommodate 600 people without appearing congested at all. I would suggest to Sayaji that they arrange a few more strategically located gas-flame umbrellas and also look into purchasing some new ones for their winter programmes held out in the open. The temperature dropped to around 10 degrees Celsius at night and those who were a bit vulnerable amongst us, conglomerated to the 2/3 heat-points. The vegetarian food is quite palatable and the non-veg Indian dishes are equally good. However, like one would expect Indian food to be in China, the Chinese cuisine here in the Hindi-heartland was wanting. The rooms are comfortable and spacious and the linen is clean. The air-conditioning is efficient. However the controls by the bed-side, for the room lighting and air-conditioning take some getting used to. The touch-screen on the console and the corresponding symbols are not prominent. By the second night you will have learned to ‘operate’ them. The shower cubicle in our suite was also a bit of a jig-saw puzzle – but that is probably because we were used to the dumb hot and cold knobs. All in all – I would rate this as the better place to stay when in Indore.

Your experience may differ. Personally my experience in cooking exploded once I went vegan,
I always loved cooking and could replicate authentic German, Italian, french and Spanish foods I learnt to love travelling around Europe during my first 25 years of life. I regarded myself as an ambitious hobby cook and also dipped into sous vide and cooking classics like „french provincial cooking“ and the big Bocuse sauce book which title I forgot.
Once I went vegan I started off with meat replacements which are unsatisfactory. So I had to look out for alternatives as European dishes are heavily meat/dairy based. Man it’s been a slippery slope from basic stuff like Buddha bowls to the depths of Vietnamese/Thai/ Indian/ Korean and Arabic cuisines. YouTube is so addictive. You start off with hummus and 5 minutes later you order grenadine molasses for your classic Arabian eggplant dish.

This power couple is building a food network in Nashville

– Senior Reporter, Nashville Business Journal Feb 14, 2019, 1:22pm CST For Maneet Chauhan , moving to Nashville was never the plan. In 2013, the celebrity chef announced plans to open her first restaurant, Chauhan Ale & Masala House, on the edge of the city’s glitzy Gulch neighborhood. At the time, however, she and her husband, an accomplished international restaurateur, were perfectly content to stay in New York City — the “Chopped” judge and frequent Food Network star coined the term “NashYorker” to describe herself and her relationship to Music City, a place she would visit often while continuing to live in the Big Apple. Today, Chauhan sees things differently. “This is home,” she said in an early January interview at Chaatable, her newly opened Indian street food eatery on Charlotte Avenue. The restaurant is the fourth under the banner of Morph Hospitality Group, a growing restaurant company helmed by Chauhan and her husband, Vivek Deora , along with a handful of other partners. In five years, the group has grown its initial $1.5 million investment in a single concept into $6 million across four restaurants, each of which aims to fill a different void in Nashville’s culinary landscape. The Indian-born culinary power couple has recruited high-end talent from other markets, built relationships with Nashville power players and, like true Nashvillians, even weathered the adversity of road construction amid the city’s boom. Chauhan’s television stardom makes her one of the most high-profile chefs to see opportunity in Music City in recent years, but her commitment to the community has earned her the respect of the city’s longtime culinary pioneers. It’s a commitment that’s likely to grow; Chauhan and Deora’s reach already stretches to Williamson and Rutherford counties through their partnership in craft-beer business Life is Brewing LLC, and the couple also sees potential to launch more casual concepts in some of the city’s outlying communities. Even as they grow, however, Chauhan doesn’t want to rest on her laurels — or the easy publicity that can come from her regular Food Network gigs and big-city background. “You cannot take it for granted,” Chauhan said. “I feel fortunate that I have some sort of national presence, [but] if somebody comes into the community and says, ‘I am this big New Yorker and I’ll show you how things are done,’ there is nothing that puts off people more. … I have embraced this community.” An unexpected arrival Chauhan and Deora called many other places home before embracing Nashville. Born in India, the duo met in college, though they didn’t begin dating until a few years later. Chauhan soon made her way to the Culinary Institute of America before working at restaurants in New Jersey and later Chicago, while Deora worked his way up in the hospitality industry, opening restaurants all over the world — even being named “Businessman of the Year” in Indonesia in his mid-20s. After a few years of long-distance dating — international calling rates made for an expensive relationship, Deora said — the couple got married and worked together in Chicago, then New York City. It was at that point, after Chauhan had followed a pair of “Iron Chef” appearances with a judging role on “Chopped,” that she got a call from Moni Advani, a potential Nashville restaurant investor. Her response? “Who the beep goes to Nashville?” Chauhan recalled, helpfully supplying her own censoring. But she visited, liked what she saw and agreed to partner with Advani and a group of other locals. By spring 2013, work was underway on Chauhan Ale & Masala House. Meanwhile, Deora remained busy with his own restaurant endeavors, and Chauhan had regular “Chopped” filming obligations keeping her in New York City. Then came Nov. 18, 2014. Chauhan Ale & Masala House opened for business that night, while Chauhan and Deora’s son, named Kharma, was born early that morning — three months ahead of schedule. “He was in the NICU for three months,” Deora said in an October interview. “So for those three months we were living out of a hotel room.” (“With our 3-year-old,” added Chauhan.) The experience, while challenging, convinced the couple that they belonged in Nashville. They fell in love with Southern hospitality and saw opportunity in the city’s booming economy, “refined palate” and gaps in the culinary market. “After spending those three months, we were like, ‘Let’s get adventurous and let’s just move,’” Deora said. He sold his New York restaurants to his partners and joined Chauhan’s team, leading to the creation of Morph Hospitality and, shortly thereafter, expansion. “With the way Nashville embraced us, and the economy and the opportunity, and the identification of culinary gaps in the city … that’s when you make those decisions,” Deora said in our January conversation. “[We] wrapped up New York, moved to Franklin.” Five years later, they’ve yet to slow down. Bumps in the road The first gap they seized on: Chinese food. In early 2017, Morph opened Tansuo, an upscale Chinese eatery housed in the same 12th Avenue North building as Chauhan. While Chauhan’s early years saw “runaway success,” in Deora’s words (evidenced by initial revenue north of $3 million in its first year and a 12 percent year-over-year growth rate), Tansuo faced more initial hurdles. A neighboring construction project at 12th and Broadway led to months of road closures just as the restaurant opened its doors. At one private event, Deora said, half the expected crowd of 50 people bailed “because they got so frustrated trying to find” the restaurant. Although they declined to share specific numbers, Deora and Chauhan said they’ve seen a clearer impact on Tansuo, whose opening coincided with the biggest disruptions of the nearby project, than Chauhan, which was well-established by that point, though both were impacted. The issues, which Deora and Chauhan blame largely on a lack of communication from the developers, are commonplace complaints from the city’s hospitality community amid the ongoing building boom. To be sure, there are longterm benefits to be reaped from growth and development, a fact Chauhan acknowledges. And even after the rough start and changes at Tansuo (original chef Chris Cheung, a high-profile recruit from New York City, is no longer with the restaurant, whose kitchen is now led by the company’s new chef de cuisine, Travis Sparks), Deora remains optimistic. Still, the experience has added a bit more caution to his generally confident demeanor. “One thing is for sure, Tansuo is well on its way to being a successful concept,” Deora said. “We are not that concerned now. But the past has left [us] once bitten, twice shy. We want to be cautiously optimistic of the development around us.” Always say ‘yes’ Even as the road closures got under their skin, Chauhan and Deora continued building out their 12th Avenue complex, opening The Mockingbird, an upscale diner, in late 2017. It’s led by Chicago restaurant veterans Brian Riggenbach and Mikey Corona. When Deora and Chauhan set out to recruit their friends from Chicago, one part of the pitch was non-negotiable: Riggenbach and Corona had to move here. Initially, Corona said he and Riggenbach were considering opening Mockingbird in Nashville while continuing to live in Chicago, traveling down a couple of times a month or whenever necessary to get things running. Chauhan and Deora, who’d abandoned their own plans for cross-country commuting and embraced the city five years ago, quickly shut down that vision. “‘That is not going to work,’” Corona said Deora and Chauhan told him. “‘We … can’t have you have one foot in and one foot out. … Nashville’s not going to take kind to that.’” And so, Corona and Riggenbach made the move. They joined the Nashville LGBT Chamber of Commerce and try to say “yes” to any event they can around town. It’s similar to Chauhan’s approach: While her schedule is full with TV appearances and Deora still travels worldwide for various restaurant ventures, the couple says “yes” to as many charitable or business-related events as they can to reflect their commitment to Nashville. “It’s really impressive how involved they are,” Corona said of Deora and Chauhan. When customers and observers ask if the celebrity chef is ever really in town, he’s quickly able to answer, “yes,” even with her jam-packed schedule. “I don’t know how she operates as a human being,” he said. For Chauhan, her buy-in to the community is equal parts personality and strategy. “You win people one at a time,” Chauhan said. “I do cooking classes once a month. That’s 30 people that you actually get to spend a couple of hours with, and they become your ambassadors. I never take anything for granted.”

Difference Between Rice Flour and Wheat Flour

6. Summary What is Rice Flour? Rice flour is a fine flour made from ground flour. The production process of rice flour includes removing the husk of rice and grinding the raw rice. Rice flour has a wide variety of culinary uses; it is especially popular in many Asian cuisines. Japanese mocha, Filipino galapóng, Indian food like dosa and pittu are some examples of dishes made with rice flour. Figure 01: Rice Flour More importantly, rice flour is completely gluten-free. Thus, this is perfect for people with gluten allergies. Rice also serves as a substitute for wheat flour. Furthermore, there are two types of rice flour as glutinous rice flour and non-glutinous rice flour. Despite their names, none of these contains gluten. The word glutinous in these names indicates the stickiness of the rice when cooked. It is possible to make flour from both white rice and brown rice. There is a slight difference between white rice flour and brown rice flour in flavour and colour. What is Wheat Flour? Wheat flour is a powder made from the grinding wheat. There are different varieties of wheat. Wheat varieties with high gluten content are called hard or strong while wheat varieties with low gluten content are called soft or weak. Although some people tend to avoid wheat flour due to its gluten content, it is this comparatively high gluten content that makes wheat dough easy to handle. The elasticity of the dough makes it suitable for many products such as flatbreads, yeast bread, cakes, and cookies. Figure 02: Wheat Flour A grain of wheat has three parts: bran (hard outer shell), germ (nutrient-rich embryo) and endosperm (largest part, which is mainly starch). Figure 03: Wheat Grain and its Nutritional Value White flour is made only from the endosperm while brown flour includes some grains’ germ and bran. Whole grain or wholemeal flour, on the other hand, contains the entire wheat grain – bran, germ and endosperm. Rice Flour and Wheat Flour?

However, there are no such restrictions with rice flour. The different types of rice flour glutinous rice flour, non-glutinous rice flour, brown rice flour and white rice flour while some types of wheat flour include all-purpose flour, whole grain flour, bread flour, cake flour, atta flour. Another difference between rice flour and wheat flour is their calorie content. Rice flour is significantly higher in calories than wheat flour. One more difference between rice flour and wheat flour is their use in baking. The elasticity of the wheat dough makes it suitable for many baked products; however, rice flour is not very good for making bread or cakes.
The below infographic on the difference between rice flour and wheat flour provides additional details on the differences. Summary – Rice Flour vs Wheat Flour Wheat flour is a powder made from the grinding wheat while rice flour is a powder made from the grinding rice. rice flour and wheat flour is that the rice flour is completely gluten-free while the wheat flour contains gluten, which irritates the digestive systems of some people.

Couldn’t have put it better. It was such a feel good post, and then I started scrolling through the comments. A majority were positive, but there were a bunch of Indian zealots going bonkers: “There is no such thing as Pakistani cuisine, what he is cooking is Indian food” blah blah. Does the inferiority complex of such individuals know any bounds?

14 of the world’s most romantic restaurants

14 of the world’s most romantic restaurants By Chris Dwyer, CNN
From million-dollar views to 12th-century dining rooms, here are 14 of the world’s most romantic restaurants worth a visit for Valentine’s Day or any other important occasion. Crab Shack, Soneva Jani, Maldives
In the Indian Ocean paradise of the Maldives, barefoot luxury resort Soneva Jani offers a number of exclusive dining options, but its latest opening takes things up a level. That’s partly because the humbly named Crab Shack offers some of the world’s very best crustaceans, such as Sri Lankan mud, Kamchatka or Alaskan crabs, all certified by the Marine Stewardship Council. They are offered in multiple dishes, including with garlic and black pepper or wok-fried in preparations such as Vietnamese or Szechuan style. Classic dishes from the Mediterranean, including seafood bouillabaisse stew or mussels meunière, are worthwhile options as well. Soneva Jani, Medhufaru Island Noonu Atoll, Maldives, +960 656-6666 Matt Robinson/Soneva Jani Lake House, Daylesford, Australia
Lake House is an elegant country hotel sitting 90 minutes’ drive from Melbourne and is home to one of Australia’s most renowned culinary programs. Alla Wolf-Tasker and her family have spent more than three decades ensuring that guests are housed and fed in some of the most romantic surroundings imaginable. Diners look out over the property’s tranquil lagoon and the gently rolling fields and forest, but it’s tough not to be entirely focused on the kitchen’s bold work. A pioneer of Australian regional dining, Lake House celebrates seasonal hyper-local produce, much of which comes from the property’s own farm. Late spring vegetable tart, for example, features a wild garlic custard, fresh curd, green asparagus emulsion, seasonal herbs and flowers, making it — almost — too pretty to eat. Lake House, 4 King Street, Daylesford, 3460, Australia; +61 3 5348 3329 Lake House Daylesford Sunset Monalisa, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
The bay at Cabo San Lucas is already a picturesque destination even before you find yourself in a restaurant carved into a cliffside. It’s home to the romantically named Sunset Monalisa. Big spenders will want to belly up to the champagne bar, where selected bubbles can be paired with Iranian beluga caviar or local oysters and lobster. To follow, Chef Paolo Della Corte’s menu, inspired by the Mediterranean, tempts with tuna tartare, grilled octopus with crushed potatoes or fettuccine with ricotta, anchovies and bottarga. Sunset Monalisa, Km 6, Misiones del Cabo, 23455 Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico; +52-624-145-8160 Courtesy Sunset Monalisa Tate Dining Room & Bar, Hong Kong
With one Michelin star to its name, Tate Dining Room & Bar under chef Vicky Lau has continued to impress since opening in 2012. One of the most elegant and innately romantic dining rooms in existence, the setting provides the perfect platform for Lau’s tasting menus, which combine premium Chinese ingredients with intricate French technique. The menus are inspired by love poetry, notably the work of Pablo Neruda, the Chilean great, translated beautifully into exquisite seasonal dishes called Odes. Ode to Pâté En Croute, for example, riffs on the classic French meat pastry with distinct Chinese notes of ginger, scallion, pork and veal. To finish, Lau’s “Ode to Red Fruit” brings yogurt meringue with raspberry sorbet and white chocolate mousse. Tate Dining Room & Bar, 210 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong; +852 2555 2172 Tate Dining Room & Bar Aqua Shard, London, UK
At London’s Aqua Shard, there are seemingly dozens of marriage proposals every week. With dazzling and incomparable views of the British capital, it’s easy to see why it’s such a popular choice for incurable romantics. Up on the 31st floor of one of the city’s most striking — and unmissable — buildings, Aqua Shard is also home to serious culinary talent and stellar ingredients. Hand-dived scallops from the Orkney Islands or Colchester rock oysters are two of the maritime appetizers. This course may be followed by fillet of Hereford beef or a stuffed globe artichoke. The restaurant’s daily hours from 7 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. mean that there’s at least a decent chance of snagging an especially coveted window table.

France’s Burgundy region is world-famous for its wines and cuisine, and few of its destinations are as romantic as Abbaye de la Bussière. The Cistercian abbey dates back to the 12th century and sits in beautifully landscaped gardens. What was once the cloister houses, the restaurant is named 1131 (after the year the abbey was built), and diners actually eat under ancient vaulted arches and columns. Chef Guillaume Royer holds one highly coveted Michelin star and has also been awarded one of the country’s great culinary distinctions as “Meilleur Ouvrier de France.” Accompanying Royer’s dishes — think venison fillet with rosemary and parsnips — is a wine list featuring some of the region’s very finest vintages.

The tiny island of Anguilla in the British West Indies is a Caribbean escape for romantics. It’s luxurious and private and has loads of style too. Pimms serves refined Anguilian cuisine and Caribbean classics that make the most of hyper-local ingredients and the daily catch. Citrus-cured king salmon or ahi tuna tartare could start things off before Anguilla lobster or roasted rack of lamb take center stage. As you’d expect, the design is all about celebrating the views of the turquoise water and white sands just a few feet away. Pimms, Maundays Bay, AI-2640, Anguilla, British West Indies; +1 264 497 6666 Richard James Taylor/Belmond Cap Juluca The Kitchen at The Dunlavy, Houston
Executive chef Jane Wild oversees the plates at The Kitchen at The Dunlavy, a glamorous spot on a patio overlooking Houston’s bayou. The dining room is bathed in light, both from natural light streaming in from outside as well as from exquisite chandeliers inside. It’s easy to see why it’s a popular destination for wedding receptions. Southern Californian cuisine influences the menu and features produce sourced straight from no fewer than the property’s three gardens. Aptly for Valentine’s, heart-healthy options also feature prominently, while new additions to a seasonal menu offer the more exotic flavors of the Middle East, India and Vietnam. The Dunlavy, 3422 Allen Pkwy, Houston, TX 77019; +1 713-360-6477 AMA by Aisha/The Dunlavy ICEHOTEL Restaurant, Jukkasjärvi, Sweden
The world’s very first hotel made from snow and ice is the chilly but undeniably fairy-tale-like backdrop to a unique dining location. Unlike the rest of the hotel, the dining room is warm, allowing head chef Alexander Meier to deliver menus that highlight local produce like bramble berries, Arctic char or moose. A five-course classic menu features some dishes served on ice, such as salmon with wasabi mayonnaise and soy jelly, while fillet of reindeer with Jägermeister sauce must be one of the most intriguing entrées anywhere, guaranteed to ensure that you and your beloved keep warm. Chocolate and Arctic brambles round off the eclectic menu. ICEHOTEL, Marknadsvägen 63, 981 91 Jukkasjärvi, Sweden; +46 706680263 Courtesy Asaf Kliger Passerelle Bistro, Greenville, South Carolina
Reedy River in Greenville, South Carolina, boasts a series of waterfalls that make for a perfectly romantic backdrop for diners at Passerelle Bistro. As a regular award winner among national al fresco dining spots, Passerelle is popular and charming. French classics such as baked goat’s cheese, escargots, mussels and decadent cassoulet of duck are some of the restaurant’s most noteworthy items. Desserts such as lemon crème brulee and chocolate mousse are other highlights. Unsurprisingly, a strong French wine list will please oenophiles. After dinner, couples can stroll the 32 acres of Falls Park and admire the Liberty Bridge above them. Passerelle Bistro, 601 S. Main Street, Greenville, SC; +1 864-509-0142 Courtesy of Passerelle Bistro Sentido Norte, Costa Rica
The Guanacaste coast is a perfect spot for an intimate getaway, partly because it has only come to the attention of visitors rather recently. Casa Chameleon is a boutique property in a stunning location overlooking the Catalinas Islands below, and its restaurant, Sentido Norte, has quickly won acclaim. Costa Rican chef Jose Lopez celebrates his country’s cuisine in dishes that reflect the cultural identity, combining African, European and Meso-American flavors, influences and traditions. On the plate, this means options including tuna sashimi, ceviche of hearts of palm, or pork ribs with a puree of yucca roots. Kicking back with after-dinner cocktails to take in the killer sunset views is encouraged. Sentido Norte, Casa Chameleon Hotels at Las Catalinas, Playa Danta, Guanacaste, Costa Rica; + 506 2103 1200 Bentley Fachner/Sentido Norde Imàgo, Rome
Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly knew a thing or two about romance, so it makes perfect sense that both chose to stay at The Hassler beside Rome’s famed Spanish Steps. The five-star property in one of the world’s most romantic and beautiful cities is still popular with those looking to profess their love. Of course, dining is a key draw, and the property’s Michelin-starred restaurant Imàgo has views of the Eternal City to make even the most jaded traveler stop in their tracks. When combined with dishes like smoked herring with black truffle, ravioli of salt cod, pecorino and sorrel, or wagyu in an anchovy sauce, the hotel’s tagline “stairway to heaven” starts to sound quite credible. Imàgo at The Hassler, Piazza Trinità dei Monti, 6, 00187, Italy; +39 06 699340 Courtesy The Hassler Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, Singapore
Singapore may be a long way from the southern United States, but that hasn’t stopped Yardbird Southern Table & Bar from serving the region’s cuisine. Think biscuits and gravy, sweetcorn hush puppies, crispy chicken biscuits or mac and cheese — with an option to include a whole lobster. Lighter fare, such as oysters with horseradish and Granny Smith apple or a Brussels sprout Caesar salad, is available too. No matter what you select, you’ll no doubt discover real charm in the warm service. The cocktails (occasionally quite potent) may add another element of romance. Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, 2 Bayfront Ave B1-07, Singapore; 018972 +65 6688 9959 Courtesy Yardbird Southern Table & Bar Catalina Rose Bay, Sydney, Australia
One of Sydney’s most celebrated waterside restaurants dazzles with harbor and sunset views in one of the city’s swankiest districts. A quieter terrace table is a must-reserve, while the dining room is buzzing and busy with locals and visitors alike. The quality of the food matches the elegant, classy and romantic vibes, with executive chef Mark Axisa delivering faultless plates crafted with impeccable local produce, such as poached Australian marron with radishes, aioli, dill, and orange dressing. Diners can even watch seaplanes take off and land just yards away, some of which allow diners to arrive in real style. Catalina Rose Bay, Lyne Park, Rose Bay, NSW 2029 Australia; +61 2 9371 0555 Paul McMahon/Catalina Rose Bay
