Start with Valentine cards for everyone. Not for lovers only, they make'em for parents and kids and friends too. And for that most special person in your life, splurge on to flowers and dinner out.
Is your idea of romance spaghetti and candlelight, a la Lady and the Tramp? The Brick Oven Grill has candles lit and wines waiting, a pretty place to dine. The informal Gondolier has six salads, from antipasto to tossed. Mom's Italian serves basil-kissed minestrone and mom-made cream cake. The Olive Garden greets you at the door with the delicious smell of Italian saucery. Provinos is red-checked and cozy with ambiance. The Back Inn Cafe and Tony's Pasta offer outstanding food and the chance for a handholding walk after dinner.
If your Pisces nature craves a water view, Aris overlooks Chickamauga Lake at its widest point; Riverside Catfish House sits by the main river channel in the gorge; and Trip's Seafood has ducks swimming in a placid pond.
Prefer the snuggle of a fireplace? Buckhead Roadhouse, the Chop House, the Loft, and Steak and Ale keep you and your love glowingly warm.
Or go to the Big River Grill Friday or Saturday for the Couple's Special. One price gives you prime rib or shrimp, dessert, and champagne. After dinner slip into Sing Sing and sing a few "I love you's" to your honey. See you there.
