Celebrate Love this Valentine’s Day

Love is in the air, and there’s no better place to celebrate V-Day than Kansas City. There are romantic restaurants all over the city, like Californos for new American cuisine and an impressive dessert menu. Get reservations at Le Fou Frog, an upscale establishment with French cuisine done right. Aixois is another French option, where classics compete with a special Valentine’s menu.

Piropos is an elegant Argentinian steakhouse that has earned top ranks among travelers and locals alike. Chaz on the Plaza, located in the middle of downtown, offers an intimate atmosphere and easy access to local bars and clubs.
