You got that hot date spot dialed in for Valentine s Day?

No pressure! (HA!)

The good news is that February 14 is on a Thursday, so it will naturally spill over to February 15, which is going to set us up for a whole Valentine s Weekend. So many options. But hurry! Your days of booking a table are dwindling down to a precious few. Here are a few (with the newest entries up top):

Ponti Seafood Grill is offering a special four-course menu with chef Alvin Binuya creating loads of tempting choices. (I'd start with the crispy duck confit, then tuck into the shrimp bisque before devouring the tempura nori wrapped ahi! Whoa. Thinking I'll have to get that decadent chocolate dessert to go.) Dinner is $65 per person, excluding tax and tip and wine pairings. Reservations: 206-284-3000 or book online.

Matt's in the Market's new chef, Shane Ryan, shows off his considerable cooking chops by crafting a menu that screams special occasion. The four-course Valentine's Day dinner includes mouthwatering mains such as Columbia River Steelhead with clams and Txistorra sausage or short ribs served on top of polenta and maitake mushrooms. Dinner is $70, with wine pairings priced at $30. Rezzies: 206-467-7909.
