The Mouthful: Capitol Hill’s Valentine’s Day Specials

    617 Broadway E.
    Okay, this is for those of you who really want to impress your date this Valentine’s Day. Altura will be serving a prix-fixe four-course menu for $162, with wine pairings for an additional $77. If you’re still conscious after reading those prices, the menu includes beef carpaccio, Yukon gold potato gnocchi with lamb ragu, and pan roasted halibut.

    Anchovies & Olives
    1550 15th Ave
    This restaurant on 15th and Pike isn’t the only Ethan Stowell restaurant with Valentine’s Day specials, but it’s certainly the closest. Their prix-fixe menu is $75/person and includes a smoked mussel salad, duck breast with apple mostarda, and a roasted quince panna cotta.

    601 Broadway E.
    This Greek restaurant on the northern end of Broadway will be serving up a six-course meal for $46/person, containing the classic lineup of Greek dishes: mousaka, spanakopita, and lamb.

    Jimmy’s on Broadway
    1100 Broadway
    Unlike many other restaurants, Jimmy’s on Broadway isn’t just offering a prix-fixe option this Valentine’s Day – they will also offer single dishes, including a $20 lobster ravioli and $40 diver’s scallops. For those who are interested, though, four courses will run you $55.

    Le Zinc
    1449 E Pine
    This French gastropub will be offering a $75 five-course menu this year, with offerings ranging from a sweet onion brioche to rabbit terrine to monkfish.

    2800 E Madison
    Luc is the more casual younger sibling to the renowned Rover’s restaurant. Their 4-course menu is relatively inexpensive at $40/person and features dungeness crab cakes, duck confit, and a chocolate pot de creme.

    1419 12th Ave
    The sophisticated Manhattan is offering a 3-course meal for $69/person. This is for seafood lovers only – options include oysters, prosciutto-wrapped crab, salmon, and a foie gras surf and turf.

    622 Broadway E
    This thali restaurant is charging for their prix-fixe menu by the couple – each pair will pay $100 for starters, thalis, and dessert thalis.

    Rione XIII
    401 15th Ave
    The second Ethan Stowell restaurant on the list, Rione XII will be serving a four-course meal for $70/person. Choices include grilled Pacific octopus, chocolate chestnut gnocchi with pancetta, and glazed rib eye.

    Skillet Diner
    1400 E Union St
    Skillet will offer a three-course menu featuring their classics, though the cost has not been made public. The food could take a backseat, however, to the saxophonist that will be at the restaurant all night.
