Tastes Newsletter February 2011: Romantic Restaurants, Hotels, Spas, Wines, Cars and other sexy ideas!

Happy Valentine's Day!

If your idea of a night in with your lover means pizza, pajamas and Netflix, think again! Gayot editors have done some serious sipping, supping and sightseeing to dig up sophisticated ways of spelling romance this February. So, in the name of love, here are our ideas for sexy escapades for Valentine's Day and year-round:

Food gets us in the mood. This could take the form of a sizzling night out at one of our top Romantic or Sexy Restaurants or the best spots in the country for Dining Out for Valentine's Day. (Diners in the Golden State get special discounts during California Restaurant Month at participating eateries.) Or it could mean staying in and cooking a dreamy meal for our object of desire. For ideas, check out two sweet new books. Sweet Magic by chef Michel Richard (Michel Richard Citronelle) features easy recipes for delectable desserts such as chocolate éclairs or "the ultimate French toast." Crazy Sexy Diet offers tips on igniting your spark via veggies and green juices to feel "blissfully whole and comfortable" again. We've also reviewed romantic cookbooks, from
Table for Two to The New Intercourses.

Whatever you whip up in the kitchen, be sure to include libido-enhancing aphrodisiacs and lots of chocolate, which can be really good for your heart. Make sure to also consult our recipe section, featuring a new creation every month such as roasted Brussels sprouts. All these delicious deeds should be washed down with the appropriate beverage such as Champagne (check our sparkling lists for all price ranges, from cheap to prestige) or one of the Top 10 Valentine's Day Wines or Top 10 Wines for Romance. When you’re curled up and cuddling on the couch, take in film from our selection of Top 10 Sexy Movies and Top 10 Romantic Movies — because every so often, cocooning on the couch is A-OK.

Properly wined and dined, you can then whisk your loved one away to one of the Top 10 Romantic Destinations in the world, including the picturesque Guangxi Province in China. For further travel inspiration, we also have compiled the Top 10 Romantic Hotels, Top 10 Honeymoon Hotels, best sexy hotels, Top 10 Romantic Spas and Couples Massages from coast to coast.

For more passion-provoking hints, check out our All Things Romantic page, also featuring the Top 10 Romantic Gifts. And when you do pick your true love up for that sizzling night out, drive up in our car of the month, the 2011 Ferrari California, or any of the cool cruisers on our lists featuring the Top 10 City Cars, Top 10 Fuel Efficient and Top Romantic Cars. Now that's amore!

We have much more for you on our website. From restaurant news to culinary events, interviews with chefs to behind-the-scenes videos, business travel guides to movie reviews to spa lists, we cover everything you need to live long and prosper.
