Check Out this Romantic Local Restaurant for Valentine’s Day

Valentines Day dinner

The most romantic night of the year is almost here! Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate your sweetheart, your family or your friends—whomever fills your life with love. No matter who makes that list, honoring that relationship usually involves one common element: food! A night out with your significant other or a loved one is one of the best ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day—and lucky for residents of Edgewater apartments, Center City is brimming with fine-dining restaurants that offer both high-quality cuisine and ambiance.


One of the most romantic restaurants in our area is Vernick Food & Drink, six blocks from your Edgewater apartment. The award-winning new American eatery has been recognized by food critics from Food & Wine, Philadelphia Magazine, New York Times and many others for its standout cuisine and atmosphere. Chef and owner Greg Vernick was recently honored with the prestigious James Beard Foundation’s Best Chef award.


So what’s all the fuss about? Vernick features a frequently rotating menu, so you can have an entirely new experience on each visit. Small plates are a great option for sharing on a date, and Vernick’s options include everything from trout to lamb, with dishes dressed up with local and fresh ingredients and sides. Its large plates range from fresh seafood to perfectly grilled meats, and there are also plenty of options for vegetarian diners. The creative cocktail and wine lists will add an extra special touch to our Valentine’s Day dinner. No holiday meal is complete without dessert, and Vernick’s dessert menu includes tempting treats such as salted caramel panna cotta, handcrafted cakes and pies, ice creams and much more.


The atmosphere at Vernick is just as exciting as the food. The second floor features a cozy dining room of candlelit tables, while the ground floor puts diners right in the middle of all the action with its open-kitchen concept.


No matter who you spend Valentine’s Day with, be sure to treat yourself well!
