DiningIn Staff Picks | Romantic Food Delivery For Valentine's Day

The Fireplace, romantic restaurant delivery, Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentine’s Day – the procrastinator’s delight. Whether you’re the guy or girl that waited until after work on February 14th to go to your local CVS, Rite Aid or Walgreens to get a Valentine’s Day card from a shelf of Valentine’s Day cards that had already been sifted through and sneezed on and disorganized thoroughly, the one that hates the holiday because it reminds you of a relationship that lead to you cruising the boulevards of regret for some time, or the one that spent an entire paycheck at a jewelry store on someone you’ve been intimately involved with for a matter of weeks, the day really can be stressful from any and every angle.

We’ve got an idea to make it less stressful, though: DON’T GO OUT TO EAT – GET DININGIN DELIVERED! I know what you’re thinking – of course us guys over at DiningIn are trying ever so hard to get you to order food from us on Valentine’s Day instead of making a reservation at your favorite local romantic restaurant. Well, suit yourselves!

Matt A, Boston Marketing Analyst – Although The Fireplace in Brookline’s Washington Square would undoubtedly be one of the – if not THE – perfect places to spend Valentine’s Day to indulge in culinary deliciousness (and to sit by their warm and inviting signature fireplace) throughout all of greater Boston, it’s also a great place to get food delivered from for Valentine’s Day, too, around the Allston-Brighton-Brookline areas. Whether you’re looking to pick at a bunch of dishes (I would recommend some combination of the meats and cheeses in their New England Artisanal Cheese and Charcuterie to start off your meal), a hearty entrée like the Dry Aged Rib Eye or the Braised Beef Short Ribs, or one (or two or three) of The Fireplace’s especially delicious famous desserts (all of them are too good to be true), The Fireplace offers a wide variety of tasty dishes to put a perfect finishing touch on your romantic evening.

DiningIn Staff Picks: Best Comfort Food Delivery

Rosebud, Eggplant Salad

The definition of “Comfort Food” varies greatly from person-to-person, city-to-city and cuisine-to-cuisine. Some may see chicken as comfort food while others see it as a healthy source of protein. Whatever your views are, you can probably appreciate our DiningIn employees’ views on comfort food – as they are in fact foodies/food experts. Let us tell you where you can get the best comfort food delivered from in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Minneapolis and Philadelphia.

Lissbeth L, Boston Quality Control – I am not a big fan of pizza, but after trying the vegetarian Puttanesca pizza from Regina Pizzeria loaded with olives, artichoke hearts, different flavored cheeses and sprinkled with fresh basil, I am a pizza fan. This just hits the spot and is a delicious comfort food. It’s a perfect choice to bring home to your family. It’s healthy, filling and it will make you want to order again and again. I promise you!

Snow R, Chicago Quality Control - Rosebud and its affiliated restaurants are some of the most popular Italian restaurants DiningIn delivers for in the city of Chicago, serving authentic and high quality meals. From their homemade pastas to their signature items like the Brick Chicken, no matter when I order Rosebud I always end up as full as can be. With that being said, Rosebud on Taylor has one of my all-time favorite salads: The Eggplant Salad (pictured on the right). I am not a big fan of Eggplant but this salad sure did win me over! Without any question it is the best salad I have ever eaten. I'd describe The Eggplant Salad from Rosebud as "Caprese Salad gone wild!"
