Pop quiz: On what day do one third of all Americans visit a restaurant? If you guessed Mother's Day, often referred to as the busiest day in the restaurant biz, you're wrong. Valentine's Day is the holiday that draws out the diners, so if you're planning a fancy date night with your special someone, it's never too early to start. Book a table three weeks ahead of time at one of the best spots in town, and all you'll need to worry about to complete the picture of romance are flowers and your outfit.

Pig & Pickle

If, much like Seinfeld's George Costanza, you and your sweetie find salted cured meats to be sensual, join newly opened Pig & Pickle for a 3- or 5-course Valentine's meal, $29 to $49 per person respectively, which kicks off with a selection of charcuterie, pickles, and bread. The entrée is a choice of braised short ribs, pork loin schnitzel, "not really bouillabaisse," or chicken pot pie with sage gnocchi. Dessert options include The Elvis (a peanut butter cheesecake sandwich with bacon and brûléed banana) and a pineapple upside-down cake with ham brittle. To ensure that you can spend a romantic evening consuming lust-worthy swine, reserve a table by calling 480-990-1407.

T. Cook's

It will be a Valentine's dinner to remember at T. Cook's, where you and your date can each select the perfect three-course meal from a wide variety of options. Starters include truffle foie gras terrine with fig pressed goat cheese, lobster cocktail with lemon tarragon crema and sturgeon caviar, and artichoke and cauliflower au gratin with shaved winter truffles. There are eight entrée options such as duet of filet mignon and butter poached lobster tail and vegan vegetable shepherd's pie. Finish your distinctive meal with desserts like milk chocolate mocha pot de crème with chai-spiced Chantilly cream and a trio including vanilla panna cotta and dark chocolate truffle cake. Dinner on Thursday, February 14 is $95 per person and includes a glass of champagne; Friday and Saturday, February 15 and 16, the three-course dinner is $75 per person. Call 602-808-0766 for reservations.
