VALENTINE’S DAY IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER, UNLESS YOU’VE ALREADY MADE YOUR RESERVATIONS, YOU’D BETTER GET CRACK’N FAST.

WHETHER YOU DECIDE TO STAY LOCAL OR VENTURE OUT, HERE ARE A FEW DIFFERENT OPTIONS TO CHOOSE FROM TO MAKE THIS VALENTINE’S DAY EXTRA SPECIAL.

SWEENY’S 301 OAK STREET BRENTWOOD 925-634-5192
One of my favorite family-owned restaurants in Brentwood. You can always count on a cheerful greeting by the owner Peter as well as excellent service from his staff. The food never disappoints. I recommend starting with the prawn Bruchetta Appetizer.

CAP’S 144 OAK STREET, BRENTWOOD 925-634-1025
This is another wonderful family owned restaurant. The atmosphere is like no other and the food is always delectable, with a variety of nightly specials to choose from. There are many choices of seating areas, but this place does fill up fast. I recommend the Seafood Cioppino entrée.

SHUTTERS BRASSERIE 2013 ELKINS WAY BRENTWOOD 925-516-4131
If you want to feel like you’re in San Francisco without the drive, look no further. The ambiance, food, and service will impress you and your significant other without a doubt. The owner and Chef Scottie is always on hand to make sure your meal is a magical experience. Be sure to order the garlic bread and dipping sauce; it’s worth every calorie.

CARPACCIO RISTORANTE ITALIANO 3070 MAIN STREET, OAKLEY 925-625-9800
Carpaccio Ristorante Italiano is one of the East County’s favorite pasta, steak, seafood, and veal restaurants. One taste of their authentic Italian cuisine and you’ll never look back. They offer simply delicious, home-style Italian fare such as fresh pastas, homemade sauces, crisp salads, a full bar, and an excellent wine selection.

1515 RESTAURANT & LOUNGE1515 NORTH MAIN STREET WALNUT CREEK 925-939-1515
One of my favorite go-to spots in Walnut Creek. Located right on North Main, this intimate atmosphere is chic and elegant, yet also casual and comfortable. They offer a variety of dining options including downstairs, outside patio, or upstairs and private parties. For Seafood lovers, you can’t go wrong ordering the Sea Bass, or the Mixed Seafood Grill.

HAMACHI RESTAURANT & LOUNGE 1523 GIAMMONA DRIVEWALNUT CREEK 925-296-0630
If you love great sushi, this little hidden gem is the spot. The lighting is dim and romantic, but the atmosphere also has a trendy vibe. I’m an Ahi Poke kinda girl, so if you’re adventurous then why not indulge. If you’re a spicy sushi connoisseur like me, you’ll want to order the Dynamite Roll.

PRIMA RISTORANTE 1522 NORTH MAIN STREET WALNUT CREEK 925-935-7780
An award winning restaurant that epitomizes fine dining. Farm to table entrées that continue to change with the season are one of the main reasons for the continued popularity. The intimate atmosphere and superb level of service are just the beginning of your experience. For those looking for an amazing wine choice, you will not be disappointed here. I recommend ordering the Sommelier’s Wine Pairing from the Chef’s recommended menu.
