7 Reasons to Love Celebrating Valentine’s Day at McKendrick’s

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It’s the time of year to celebrate love…celebrate the person you love most while enjoying the food you love most in the loveliest places. That’s a lot of love to go around, which is why at McKendrick’s Steak House, we’re giving you seven reasons to love celebrating Valentine’s Day with us.

February 14 falls on a Wednesday this year, so we’re bringing the love on Valentine’s Day as well as on the weekend before and after Vday.  Not only does this take the pressure off of only having one special day to celebrate love and romance, but it also gives you extra time to try the delicious menu created especially for Valentine’s Day.

Reason 2: The Valentine’s Day Menu is Divine

Our Valentine’s Day menu this year is classic like a LBD but tantalizing like a little red dress. While we’ll also offer the regular dinner menu, our specials are worth swooning over.

  • Tomato basil bisque with a goat cheese crouton
  • Jumbo stone crab claws with McKendrick’s mustard sauce
  • Apple cranberry and walnut salad with sherry vinaigrette
  • Red wine braised short ribs with soft polenta roasted peppers
  • Oak grilled jumbo sea scallops with stone ground grits and blackened butter
  • Rich red velvet cake

Every bite is designed to alight your taste buds and awaken your senses. By the last morsel, you’ll feel the love.

McKendrick’s has a reputation for its impressive wine list (it has won the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence every year since 2003), and on Valentine’s Day, we’re not holding anything back.  Start the dinner with an aperitif--set the stage with a split of Moet & Chandon Imperial Brut.  Share a bottle of your favorite varietal with dinner then cap the meal off with an after-dinner cocktail or sweet martini alongside your dessert.

Reason 4: The Desserts are as Nice as They are Naughty

Speaking of desserts, in addition to red velvet cake, McKendrick’s patisserie, Jeree Milton, has created a dessert menu of sumptuous sweets sure to satisfy your cravings. There’s a white chocolate and Grand Marnier brûlée, turtle gelato pie, and McKendrick’s New York cheesecake with almond crust, fresh cream, and fine chocolate to name a few delights.

Reason 5: The Restaurant’s Ambiance Sets the Mood for Romance

No matter how delicious the meal, without the right setting, it’s impossible to set the scene for romance. McKendrick’s is an award-winning restaurant with polished wood interiors, mood lighting, and white linen table cloths. It’s the perfect combination of classic and modern designed to make you feel comfortable and sophisticated. Our dining experience is intimate and private, which is the perfect romantic ambiance for Valentine’s Day.

After dinner, instead of heading home, get a room. A few blocks (a short drive) from the restaurant is the Crowne Plaza Atlanta at Perimeter Ravinia hotel. Get a special package for couples to make your night out extra nice; use the shuttle service to whisk yourself to and from romantic destinations.

Reason 7: We Genuinely Care about Your Experience

One of the best parts about dining out for Valentine’s Day is no clean-up, a guarantee of delicious food, and great service. We care about you having the perfect evening from the moment you walk through our doors, so if you’re still looking for a reason to love McKendrick’s this Valentine’s Day, keep in mind that we genuinely love taking care of you.

Embrace the love this Valentine’s and go big with the bold, bright flavors offered on our Valentine’s Day 2018 menu. Feel the love and romance this holiday.  Visit the McKendrick’s Steak House website to make a reservation and to learn more about our classic restaurant.
