ST. PETE BEACH, Fla (01/20/14) – As the color pink represents unconditional love, it’s no surprise why couples will find dining at Loews Don Cesar Hotel engaging, romantic and even a little flirtatious this Valentine’s Day.

 Guests to the Loews, which was named after the romance of “Don Caesar de Bazan”, a character in the opera Maritana, can choose between the enchantment of the acclaimed Maritana Grille, to the more casual and flirtatious Sea Porch Restaurant.

 A member of Florida Trend Magazine’s Golden Spoon Hall of Fame, Maritana Grille will take you on a seven-course prix fixe culinary journey beginning with Stone Crab, and continue through the evening with everything from a “flirt” with Dandelion Greens Ravioli, fresh Foie Gras or Scallops. Only the finest seasonal ingredients will be featured offering an experience that will spark conversation and create an evening of passion and fascination. The prix fixe menu is $120 pp plus tax and service charge.  

Just as the sun begins to set, The Sea Porch restaurant will embrace Valentine’s Day with a special three-course prix fixe menu. Guests can be seduced with selections including Shrimp Bisque, Vanilla Poached Lobster or Laurel Roasted Filet before “surrendering” to a Pistachio Biscuit with Milk Chocolate Mousse and Rose Petal Preserves. The menu will be offered February 14-16 for $49 per person, plus tax and service charge.

Loews Don Cesar Hotel is also offering a two-night “We Dream in Pink” romance package starting at $339 per night. For reservations and further information call 727-363-5077 or visit The Loews Don CeSar Hotelis located at 3400 Gulf Boulevard, St. Pete Beach, FL  33706.
