And because Valentine's Day is often as much about lust as love, I'd head to Mastro's Ocean Club for something decadent and sexy -- maybe Alaskan King crab legs ($62 per pound) or broiled live Maine lobster ($34 per pound), both sweet, both luscious swathed in dripping in drawn butter. For a more refined but affordable rendition, I'd go to Kai for the Lobster Degustation, a menu staple tweaked now and again by chef de cuisine Josh Johnson ($28). It's always an elegant "lobster three-ways" presentation reflecting indigenous ingredients and a Native American sensibility. At the moment, it's this: butter-braised tail with avocado mousse, tear drop salsa and lobster coral; lobster knuckles in sweet corn panna cotta with sour radishes; and lobster cobbler with mesquite meal and burnt Irish Porter cheese.
