A Taste of Romance, Seattle-Style

What puts Seattle eaters in the mood for love? Chocolate and oysters, of course - but also vinaigrette, arugula and leeks (roasted, if possible.)

To woo the city's doting couples, restaurants annually devise prix-fixe Valentine's menus studded with quasi-aphrodisiacs. In a highly unscientific method of determining which dishes local eaters associate with romance, we plugged every holiday menu sent us by eager publicists into a word cloud generator: The bigger the word, the more frequently chefs used it.

If you're wondering where you too can feast on wild boar and olives (a repast of which St. Valentine, a Roman, would surely approve), the menus included here were provided by Mondello's, Tilth, Golden Beetle, Tini Bigs, Urbane, Ivar's, Bin on the Lake, Beach Cafe, Fresh Bistro, Bastille, Cafe Flora and Volunteer Park Cafe. Just eight reservation-making days left til the holiday.
