Noshing Around

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here are some dining options--not covered here previously--for that special day.

Cup (of Love) Café: May your cup runneth over at the Hotel Congress with a three-course prix fixe menu for $69 per couple. 311 E. Congress St.; 798-1618.

Desert Diamond Casino: The odds are in your favor that this three-course dinner is a winner for $34.95 per person. I'd choose house-cured gravlax and salmon roe with buckwheat blinis, Mediterranean skewered seafood with garlicky-lemon beurre blanc sauce and the romantic finale--dark chocolate liquor soufflé. 1100 W. Pima Mine Road; 294-7777.

Janos: Let the six-course tasting menu begin with oysters on the half shell, butter-basted lobster tail, pan-seared sturgeon with dried-tomato gnocchi, roast duck breast and brandy-flamed winter mushrooms and dark chocolate Bavarian for dessert for $95 per person, or $135 with wine pairings. 3770 E. Sunrise Drive; 615-6100.

Macayo's: Couples can cozy up this Valentine's Day for the traditions special, which is meant for sharing the enchilada bites appetizer, a plate of four enchiladas served with rice and beans, and enchiladas dulces for dessert. Check out for a location near you.

RA Sushi: RA dishes up passion with the aphrodisiac affair. Be seduced by food allegedly thought to heighten romance, including bananas, chocolate, lobster, champagne and asparagus ... but not in that order. From Feb. 10-14, enjoy passion lobster roll, a split of Domaine Chandon and a fried banana stuffed with chocolate then topped with Kahlua sauce for $22. 2905 E. Skyline Drive; 615-3970.

Raz: Saturday, Feb. 11, through Valentine's Day, Raz will offer specials of steak and lobster or shrimp scampi. Dinner includes champagne or wine and chocolate-covered strawberries for $32 per person. 1929 E. Grant Road; 327-2223.

Red Sky Café: If you still get goose bumps listening to "Strawberry Fields Forever," then go to Red Sky Café for live music by the Magical Mystery Tour, along with a four-course dinner for $65 per person. 2900 N. Swan Road, Suite 100; 326-5454.

Soleil: Soleil marries Tucson's best view with a four-course dinner for $55 per person, which includes vegetarian choices. Twenty couples have popped the question in the past six years. Could you be No. 21? They are happy to hide a ring in the crème brulée. 3001 E. Skyline Drive; 299-3345.
