Where to Get a Romantic Dinner Right Near Home

February 11, 2021

Like many holidays we’ve had over the past year, Valentine’s Day is going to look a little different this year. A fancy dinner out is usually most couples’ go-to idea for a romantic Valentine’s outing but, with capacity limits, temporary closures and more, an exciting dinner date may seem out of reach for 2021. However, there are many eateries right near your Chestnut Square apartment that are offering their award-winning cuisine for takeout—from sushi to steak and everything in between, you can still recreate a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner right from the comfort of your own home.

One of the most romantic spots around is Core de Roma. Located just two blocks from your Chestnut Square apartment, the cozy Italian eatery offers limited indoor and outdoor seating so you can certainly hit the town with your special someone (and bring your favorite bottle because it’s BYOB) if you feel comfortable—but it also is offering takeout and delivery, so you can recreate the romance right at home.

The winner of the 2020 Diners’ Choice Award, Core de Roma means the Heart of Rome, with menus that stay true to the owners’ commitment to authenticity. The restaurant features all of the traditional courses: hearty soups, fresh salads, appetizers Bruschetta and jumbo meatballs. When it comes to the entrees, Core de Roma offers nearly a dozen different types of pastas, all with handcrafted sauces, fresh veggies and meats, as well as chicken, veal and beef options. Homemade desserts like tiramisu and ricotta cheese cake will add a sweet ending to your Valentine’s meal.

Romance can seem hard to come by in a pandemic but, with the standout culinary options right near your Chestnut Square apartment, you can still enjoy a sweet dinner with your special someone, all while resting assured you’re both staying safe.
