Las Vegas has endless romantic opportunities, and they extend to the city’s restaurants. So if you’re thinking of treating that special someone on Valentine’s Day, here are a few suggestions. One caveat: While we think they’re romantic, a lot of other people do, too, so Valentine’s Day can be a tough ticket if you haven’t planned ahead. Consider a little flexibility in your schedule — who says you have to celebrate right on the 14th? — or take comfort in the fact that there’s always next year.
Eiffel Tower Restaurant
There aren’t many places more romantic than Paris, and the Eiffel Tower only amplifies that mood, which gives the Las Vegas version a head start. But the real swoon factor stems from the walls of windows that provide expansive, just-high-enough views of the Strip and its glittering lights — even more so if you reserve a table overlooking the Fountains of Bellagio. French-born chef and proprietor Jean Joho, whose home base is Everest in Chicago, is the executive chef here, and the restaurant’s specialties reflect the best of his homeland — with a modern American twist. Expect such dishes as a cold foie gras torchon with duck prosciutto and fig compote, venison medallions with pumpkin gnocchi and huckleberry jus, or any of a quartet of caviar choices.
