The Edible Web: Valentine's Edition
Posted by Charlie Harris

With Valentine's Day rapidly approaching, the internet is saturated with romantic recipes, alleged aphrodisiac  foods, swanky restaurant suggestions and bizarre heart-shaped edibles of all varieties. Enjoy these deliciously romantic (or romantically delicious) links.  

John Mariani of Esquire compiles a list of the The Restaurants to Take Her On Valentine's Day. Romantic restaurants making the cut are Daniel (New York), The River Cafe (Brooklyn), Picasso (Las Vegas), Azul (Miami), Jean-Louis (Greenwich, CT), Fleur de Lys (San Francisco), Spiaggia (Chicago) and  Auberge du Soleil (Rutherford, CA).

For heartless bastards looking to go in the opposite direction, Eater Chicago scouts restaurants ideal for breaking up in, preferably before Valentine's Day. Among their choices: Kuma's Corner, CarnivaleViolet Hour and White Castle. On the contrary, White Castle has gone out of their way to promote romance with their Share the Love Valentine's Day Photo Contest. The winner gets a romantic dinner for two -- and hopefully a proposal involving a chicken ring.

For those looking to impress significant others with their culinary prowess, Chow offers a slideshow of 26 Classic Valentine's Day Dishes (with recipes). 

Food Republic gives sound advice on  How to Eat and Drink on Valentine's Day, categorized by relationship status. Single? "Bar. Bar. Bar. Bar. Bar. Bar. Bar. Go to a bar. It will be filled with other single people."

It wouldn't be Valentine's day without slightly off-putting heart-shaped food items. Slice (Serious Eats) illustrates How to Make Heart-Shaped Pizza and Heart-Shaped Pepperoni. If you feel compelled to make heart-shaped hard-boiled eggs (how sensual!), Bon Appétit has you covered. And finally, here's heart-shaped Nutella ravioli from Recipe Girl
