Six-course Beatles-themed dinner at Louro
Set your Valentine's dinner to a soundtrack of love songs by The Beatles. At Louro, chef David Santos (an avid Beatles fan) presents a special V-Day menu and soirée. Each creative course in this themed, six-course tasting menu ($85 per person) is named after a Beatles song. The All You Need is Love starter consists of a Mashpee oyster with bergamot granita, while the In My Life promises sturgeon served with beef foam, leeks, and whipped caviar cream. In honor of couples growing old together the When I'm Sixty-Four dish features (appropriately) dry-aged beef with aged cheddar whipped potatoes. Dessert, a dark chocolate brownie for two called Here, There, and Everywhere, is made for sharing with your paramour. 142 West 10th St., 212-206-0606
