Cozy up in the Glebe for Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to be romantic with your partner, your loved ones, and even just treating yourself to some much-deserved self love. From a romantic outing at your favorite restaurant, to delicious-sweet treats, or a bouquet of lovely flowers, here are some ideas to kick your Valentine’s Day into high gear in the Glebe.
An already exceptionally warm and cozy restaurant, owner’s Cory and Marhlee have created a six-course dinner starting at $65 a person – and an optional wine pairing for $45. The meal features a scallop crudo with beetroot, buttermilk and dill, chicken and dumplings and an “Enright Cattle Co.” butcher steak, as well as dessert. Check out Eldon’s online here.
Every day is a perfect day for pizza, and Valentine’s Day at Boston Pizza could arguably be the BEST day for a slice.
