04 Feb Valentine’s Day Is Coming: Romantic Ideas Near Seasons at Bel Air
Valentine’s Day is almost here, and it’s a bit of a challenging one, thanks to COVID-19. If you’re unsure how to make the day a special one, we’re here to help. From the team here at Bel Air Apartments, here are five romantic ideas near Pleasant Hills to jumpstart your Valentine’s Day planning.
Take Home Some Seafood
This might not be the year for an intimate high-end restaurant experience, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make Valentine’s Day dinner special. Impress your special someone with a delicious take-home crab dinner from Richard’s Fish and Crabs.
Make no mistake: this joint isn’t romantic in the least. Don’t take your date here for dinner, even if it reopens in time! No, our recommendation is to stop by solo earlier in the day and pick up some of the freshest blue crab around. Take it home and incorporate it into a romantic seafood feast.
Can’t Go Wrong With Italian
Upscale Italian restaurants are the epitome of the classic romantic meal. Right here in Bel Air we have Savona, an upscale Italian delicatessen and wine destination. You’ll likely need to order your meal as takeout, but you can still make your at-home Valentine’s Day extra special by upgrading the food along with the ambiance.
Check out the cheese board for a nice change of pace. Also, Valentine’s Day only comes once a year, too: why not splurge a little extra on a nicer bottle of wine?
Breakfast In Bed
Impress your loved one with a fantastic breakfast in bed experience. Your significant other will feel adored by the extra attention. If you’re handy in the kitchen, you can cook up something special yourself. But if not, we’ve got you covered. You can still impress by picking up crepes, omelets and more from the Sunny Day Café in downtown Bel Air.
Go for a (Beer) Flight
For most of us, travel is out this year, too, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take your partner flying! If you enjoy a good brew, check out Independent Brewing Company for a romantic and alcohol-filled evening. The establishment specializes in artisanal ales and ciders, including many with locally grown ingredients and many gluten free offerings.
Not an alcohol fan? That’s OK: IBCo offers craft sodas, nitro cold brew, kombucha on tap and more.
Visit the Liriodendron Mansion
One of the most beautiful and romantic structures in all of Bel Air, the Liriodendron Mansion is a stunning destination. If you’re into architecture and manicured green space, you’ll love the Palladian style. Note that the interior may be subject to COVID-19 related closures, but even viewing the mansion from outside is still plenty romantic.
