Valentine’s Day is almost upon us and you are not going to find a city with more options to show your partner how much you care than Los Angeles. Splash Magazines Worldwide has put together a list of some of the best spots to help you plan the perfect date this Valentine’s Day.

Our favorite new restaurant, Craft Hill, which offers the most innovative menu from appetizers to cocktails is the only place to be in Pasadena this Valentine’s Day. Offering a farm-focused menu for two, Craft Hill’s Crafted With Love menu is built for couples, offering a Grilled Oyster amuse bouche, salad for two, sharable entrees including a choice of Striped Sea Bass, Honey Lavender Roasted Chicken, and Cote de Boeuf. Perfectly paired desserts offer couples both a Pot de Crème and Pavlova.
