Love is in the Air - Get a Last-Minute Reservation at Sable

Sable's bar area, with a beautiful molecule-themed light fixture.
It happens to the best of us - Valentine's day creeps up and we have no dinner reservations. It doesn't matter if you got busy, forgot, broke a leg or got amnesia, that special someone is going to be angry. Have no fear! A little bird tweeted us that Sable Kitchen & Bar still has some reservations available for Valentine's Day. Their menu is such a great deal that we couldn't resist posting - six courses for $45, including a sparkling cocktail and dark chocolate champagne truffles. Beat that!

The menu looks incredible. Diners will start with blinis with fried oyster and move onto butter-poached lobster with grapefruit, avocado and basil. Beet ravioli, scallops and filet mignon round out the menu, and you will end your evening with a "Coeur a la Crème" made with raspberries, passion fruit and honey. The special menu is available February 11-14. The entire regular menu will also be served, in case you want even more tasty nibbles.

Sable Kitchen & Bar is located at 505 N. State Street.
