Just a few ideas to make the night extraordinary are below, from the innocent to the seductive. For a complete list of all stores, shops and restaurants, please visit http://www.shopcoralgables.com.

Sumptuous

Italian may be the language of love, and there are plenty of Italian restaurants where couples can express it in Downtown Coral Gables this year. But if meatballs don’t get you going, not to worry. Downtown Coral Gables and Miracle Mile has more than 70 eateries and a variety of cuisines to choose from, from traditional steakhouses to Mediterranean, Latin, Thai, Japanese, Caribbean fusion and more. Click on “Dine” at www.shopcoralgables.com, and make a reservation for your lovely valentine before it’s too late.

Sweet

Give the perfect combination of romantic treats with a chocolate dipped wine bottle from Peterbrooke Chocolatier. The sweet specialists will cover any bottle of wine or champagne in food grade wrap and then dip in Peterbrooke’s gourmet chocolate blend. When the tab of the bottle is pulled, the chocolate breaks off into bite sized chunks. Cost is $25. This tasty Valentine’s Day Special will take place through Friday, February, 13th, from 6pm – 7pm or 8pm – 9pm, and on Saturday, February, 14th from  2pm – 3pm. Reservations are required.
