HARTFORD - Why feel rushed at a hectic restaurant on Valentineâ€™s Day when you can enjoy a romantic dinner on the Saturday before? The Polish National Home is hosting a pre-Valentineâ€™s Day five-course prix fixe dinner in an intimate setting on Feb. 10.
The PNH is taking reservations now for the evening, which costs $45 per person, including tax and gratuity.
The price includes a bottle of wine for the couple; an aperitif, salad; cup of soup, with a choice of mushroom or sauerkraut; mini potato pancakes topped with smoked salmon or two pierogi; a choice of prime rib roasted salmon for the entrĂ©e; and a choice of house-made creme brulĂ©e, or house-made nalesniki (crepes) with strawberry sauce for dessert.
After dinner, guests are invited to enjoy the PNHâ€™s new Game Room, which will be available only for Pre-Valentineâ€™s Dinner couples that night.
Seating is limited, so visit polishhomect.org for the online reservation form. Reservation times are available at half-hour intervals from 6 to 8 p.m., to maintain an ambiance of intimacy.
When making a reservation, couples can also request â€śtheir songâ€ť and PNH promises to do its best to play it during the evening.
After making a reservation, someone from PNH will call to secure payment and confirm the requested reservation time.
