After a two-year fast, Bahian restaurants once again celebrate one of the most awaited dates on the calendar: Valentine’s Day. Full house day, couples exchanging vows of love and opportunity for entrepreneurs in the sector to ensure good billing, especially in such a special moment as this almost post-pandemic. But attracting the public, with increasing competition, is not so simple. After all, lovers do usually look for these establishments to celebrate the date, but they also like to be pampered, to live special experiences.
And for that, chefs and restaurant owners strive to deliver impeccable service, whether offering special menus or preparing surprises for lovers. As the options are many, which often makes the choice difficult, the Correio curated and listed here a script with the best places to celebrate the date. The decision is yours, but it is worth considering the environment, taking into account the romantic atmosphere of the place, or simply choosing the menu that best suits the couple.
Bella Napoli, for example, which this year is completing six decades, has prepared a special menu for Saturday night (Valentine’s Eve) that will also be served at lunch on Sunday. The menu costs R$ 143.00 per person and consists of a starter, main course and two dessert options, in addition to a glass of Italian red wine. For those who really like Italian cuisine, another good choice is La Pasta Gialla, which also has a special menu for Valentine’s Day, served throughout the weekend, including lunch. The menu consists of a starter, main course and dessert.
For those who like novelty and works of art, the perfect setting is the Bistrô das Artes, located in Carmo. There, chef Karine Poggio created a special with good food and live music to lull the lovers on Saturday and Sunday. At the very sophisticated Manga, chefs Dante and Katrin Bassi created a special 11-step tasting menu that will be served at dinner on Saturday (11). There is also Chez Bernard, Carvão, Vini Figueira, 705 and much more. Check out our suggestions, choose the one that most pleases the couple and enjoy.
