Valentine’s Day In Santa Monica: Top Spots To Celebrate The Night:

Santa Monica restaurants are taking the opportunity of Valentine’s Day this Thursday to celebrate the most romantic night of the year.

Here is a look at three restaurants offering specials at three different price points.

Singles Night Out

Now known as one of Santa Monica’s hottest restaurants thanks to its casual-chic atmosphere, delicious food, and attractive 20-something crowd, Brick+Mortar at 2435 Main Street is touting itself as “the place” to meet singles on the Westside this Valentine’s Day.

Brick+Mortar will be hosting a “Stoplight Party,” so come guests should come wearing the color of their relationship status (red = taken, yellow = potentially interested, and green = single and ready to mingle). There will be a DJ, special menu items added, and an extra V-Day surprise for diners. The party begins at 9pm.

For reservations, call 310.450.3434 or visit brickandmortarla.com.

Casual And Fun Set Menu

Bar Pintxo at 109 Santa Monica Boulevard is offering a four course menu for $60 per person (add an extra $30 for wine pairing per person), with two different seating times: 6:30pm and 9pm.

The first course will feature Oysters prepared with 58 year Sherry Vinegar and piquillo peppers. The second course is a Wild Mushroom soup with black truffles. For the main course, there is an option of Filete de Pez Manta with brussel sprouts or three hour Rioja Braised Beef Cheeks. Dessert will be dark chocolate truffles with roasted hazelnuts and rose water cream.

Chef David Plonowski said he wanted to create a menu that was indulgent and rich in flavors, but also sticking to the restaurant’s Spanish roots.

“The first course, oyster escabeche is an aphrodisiac and are also very rich as well as the chocolate and truffles in our dessert dish,” Plonowski said.

Plonowski said everything was created using in a Spanish technique, but infusing modern techniques to make it something different for the guests.

“The beef cheeks are slow braised in red wine for three hours,” he said. “The cream underneath the chocolate truffles will be infused with rose pedals. Every preparation is designed to be luxurious.”

Bar Pintxo has always been on a walk-in basis, but this is the first year the restaurant is taking reservations.
