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

Altura
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.

Byzantion
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.

Luc
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.

Manhattan
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.

Poppy
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.
