It’s that time of the year when you seek that oh-so-perfect place to share an epic dinner with your beloved that will be cherished and remembered forever. No pressure, right? But don’t expect Cupid to have any answers because that cherub is only good at making you foolish.

Let Yelp take you down the most delicious plant-based path to Be Mine. By the way, we know “romantic” is subjective, so even if you’re not the bougie candle-lit kind of couple, Yelp’s got your back whether you’re seeking a sushi share, bohemian paradise or a very metal meal to linger over.
