Procrastinated on Valentine's Day plans? Not to worry: Whether you're going out or just want some cheerful treats, we've gathered a slew of swoon-worthy options around town, from a romantic dinner at Bar Casa Vale to a pastry box from Zuckercreme. For more ideas, check out our food and drink guide.

Bakeshop List
Is butter your valentine's love language? Woo them with croissant dough hearts, which are available adorned with maple glaze and edible gold, studded with pearl sugar and amarena cherries, or laden with caramelized apples. If that doesn't do the trick, there's also a chocolate vanilla marble cake, heart-shaped raspberry hand pies, burnt Basque cheesecake, and a peanut butter pie topped with toothsome honeycomb. All can be picked up from the bakery on February 14.

Bar Casa Vale List
This cozy Spanish-inspired restaurant outfitted with twinkling lights is the perfect setting for a Valentine's Day date. Enjoy a four-course meal with options like beef tartare with house-made chips, beet citrus salad, grilled trout, spinach gnocchi, and rose sorbet with grapefruit.

G-Love List
The "reverse steakhouse" will serve an à la carte menu with festive foods like oysters, truffle, caviar, and Champagne, in addition to fan favorites like the crusty avocado and ensalada bomba. Not only that, but they'll also have two cocktail specials: the "Modern Love" (dark rums, pumpkin, orange, Frangelico, egg white, lemon, and allspice) and the "Whip-a-licious" (passion fruitcurd, lime meringue, and "coconut crack"). As of this writing, most seatings are booked up, but there are still some late-night reservations at 10 pm left.
