2020 was a grueling year that brought our lives to a halt. Offices and classrooms moved to bedrooms, and dining out became a thing of the past. A sense of foreboding crept into our collective conscience, and the feeling of uncertainty crippled our lives. Now, we are in 2021 but still haven’t been able to dispense of the sanitizers and the masks because the pandemic is still very much a part of our lives. But thankfully, the eateries are open, and the celebrations are on.
Valentine’s Day is upon us, and we cannot keep calm! A perfect dinner date with your loved one is non-negotiable. No matter how we plan our special day, good food always makes it exceptional. So let’s have a look at what these eateries are planning to offer this Valentine’s Day.
