8 Decadent Valentine's Day Dishes to Make If You're Alone
February 8, 2013
Caffe Storico's Gnocchi
As chef Jim Burke describes, this decadent dish is "immensely satisfying" to make. It’s simple and straightforward, but so creamy and indulgent that you may find yourself getting lost in the meal (and hopefully forgetting what day it is altogether).
Red Cat's Baked Fontina
From the mind (and kitchen) of acclaimed chef Jimmy Bradley, this baked fontina is creamy and rich, and is sure to warm up your heart in just a few bites. With simple flavors that add to the depth of the dish, you wouldn’t want to share this anyway.
Landmarc's Boeuf Bourguignon
Chef Marc Murphy’s version of this legendary beef dish is smooth and indulgent, and has the red wine you crave built right in. It’s romantic in itself, creating a Valentine’s Day love affair between you and the stove.
Perilla's Duck Meatballs
Harold Dieterle’s restaurants are known just as much for their delicious and unique meals as they are for his Top Chef acclaim. Plated over mint cavatelli, these tasty little bites are exciting and comforting all at once—– the perfect combination to remind you that it’s just another Thursday night.
Delicatessen's Red Velvet White Chocolate Cake
What’s the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert, alone or otherwise? Red velvet — check. White chocolate — check. Cake — but of course. And finally, we give you a recipe that combines all three. Still aren’t sold? Take a look, its picture says more than a thousand words could.
Sugar and Plumm's Triple Chocolate Brownie
Even people who claim they "aren’t chocolate people" (it’s a nice lie, isn’t it?) will fall in love with this decadent piece of chocolaty goodness. The geniuses at Sugar and Plumm don’t mess around when it comes to desserts, and now you don’t have to, either.
Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse's Bourbon Sweet Potato Casserole
Featuring the most luxurious of all the vegetables, this skillet casserole is so delicious that it can be used as a main dish or a side to complement one of our other favorite indulgences.
The Darby's Three Cheese Macaroni
If there is one universal comfort food, we’d argue that it’s mac and cheese (and we dare you to prove us wrong). And of all mac and cheeses, chef Alex Guarnaschelli’s three cheese delight is up there on our list of favorites. 'Nuff said.
