Treat yourself (and your partner) to a dinner out
These restaurants have very special and delectable Valentine's Day dinner menus: Bleu Northeast Kitchen in Burlington, Burlington Beer Company in Burlington, Black Flannel Brewing and Distilling in Essex Junction, Maple Soul in Rochester, and Highland Lodge in Greensboro. Please make sure to check availability or make a reservation before heading over. Not feeling like eating out? There's also the potential for dinner in - pick up some Vermont gourmet treats at one of our featured food markets.
Pick up a sweet, savory, or alcoholic treat
