Dinner with a Prix Fixe Menu
When was the last time you two sat down and reminded yourselves of why you’re butter together? It’s been a while, huh? Get away from the kitchen this Valentine’s and let someone else do the cooking. Make reservations at one of the 100’s of restaurants in the H-Town area that offer prix fixe menus.
Prix fixe menus tend to make us feel a little fancier if I do say so myself. There’s something sweet about having a first, second, and third course topped off with dessert, all for one fixed price.
Here are a few restaurants you should treat your sweetheart to for your special Valentine’s Day in Houston. The restaurant’s listed offer prix fixe menus for Valentine’s Day.

Picture this, a walk in the park or around the block at sunset with ice cream in hand. So simple yet so romantic.
