Reservations are now open

Love, along with the sweet scent of unique cuisine, is in the air on the corner of Cushing Street and Meyer Avenue.

The Coronet, located at 198 W. Cushing St., is now taking reservations for its romantic Valentine’s Day Dinner. Five courses, wine pairings, and live music — it’s a romantic’s paradise.

A beautiful five-course prix fixe dining experience is in order and you have the option for wine pairings throughout the meal. Right off the bat, though, you’ll be greeted with bubbles and a welcome gift to make the night extra special.

Plus, the live music will be in full effect from 6 – 8 p.m. on the patio (weather permitting) and then again from  8 – 10 p.m. indoors.

Seats are $120 per person, which includes bubbly beverages, and then $170 if you’d like your dinner paired with wine. You’ll definitely want to make reservations ahead of time because dinners like this fill up quickly.
