The Best Valentine’s Day Menu in Palm Springs
This year, Chef Jean Paul Lair’s prix fixe Cupid menu is a culinary homage to romance.
Guests have the choice of six appetizers and the options cater to a wide variety of palates. For those who like to start with a salad will enjoy the gourmet Caesar with anchovies topped with Brioche croutons; or, for a different salad twist, there’s also a red beet, pear and goat cheese salad served with a pistachio oil dressing. Are you partial to soup? Chef Lair’s Roasted Tomato and Corn Soup is a magnificent starter. Sashimi Grade Ahi Tuna and Blue Crab, Avocado and Mango Cocktail are sure to please the seafood and raw-fish-o-philes, while the truly decadent may opt for the crème brûlée au foie gras.
Vegetarians, omnivores and pescatarian will all delight in one of the five main course options offered on Le Vallauris’ Valentine’s Day menu. A pumpkin, mushroom and spinach ricotta ravioli dish was created especially by Chef Lair for conscious eaters looking for a savory dish. Sea-foodies are sure to enjoy the Grilled Pacific Sea Bass in saffron sauce; while steak, lamb, and duck dishes round out the menu’s entrée options.
We mustn’t forget about the desserts! If you like surprises, then naturally you’ll gravitate to Le Vallauris Surprise Valentine’s Day Dessert. Those who prefer a lighter closing dish can choose between a trio of sorbets and a cookie and fresh berries plate.
Not only do the Valentine’s Day food offerings at Le Vallauris fall into the aphrodisiac category, the atmosphere also exudes romance. Louis XV furnishings and Flemish tapestries add to the poetic, enchanting atmosphere. If you’re envisioning a moon and candle lit evening of al fresco dining, the garden patio at Le Vallauris can accommodate your dreams. For those thinking of popping the question on Cupid’s day will not find a more idyllic locale in Palm Springs than La Vallauris’ outdoor dining room.
What better place to spend Valentine’s Day than at the most romantic restaurant in Palm Springs. The atmosphere is second to none at Le Vallauris, and according to the well respected food critics at Zagat’s, it’s also one of the best restaurants in Palm Springs!
