…The Don CeSar
Love is in the air, and no place is that more evident than at the Loews Don CeSar Hotel, the Pink Palace of St. Pete Beach. This Valentine’s Day, skip the chocolate and flowers and instead enjoy an unforgettable multi-course meal at one of the Loews Don CeSar’s two signature restaurants, Maritana Grille or Sea Porch Restaurant, followed by a nightcap at Rowe Bar, just steps away from the sugar-white sand of the Gulf of Mexico. Further amplify your love story by booking a pre-dinner spa treatment at the award-winning Spa Oceana.
Much like its namesake character in the opera Maritana, the AAA Four Diamond Maritana Grille is the star of the Don CeSar’s culinary lineup. On Valentine’s Day, plunge into the deep by indulging in a seven-course prix fixed menu, as curated by the talented Morrocan Chef de Cuisine Mouhssine Benhamacht who frequently uses the Don’s backyard – the Gulf of Mexico – to source his culinary creations. Choose from Steamed Halibut and Coffee-Coasted Venison for your entrée and Poached Lobster on the Half Shell or a five ounce Charred Filet for your main course. Other menu highlights include a Foie Gras Crème Brulee, Cured Chilean Sea Bass Carpaccio and Parfait of Scallop Mousse. Pricing is $135 per person or $180 per person with wine pairings.
Sea Porch Restaurant
True to its name, Sea Porch Restaurant is located just steps from the breathtaking powder white sand of St. Pete Beach. Take in the setting over a three-course meal on Valentine’s Day with your loved one. Start with safferon lobster bisque or vegetable nicoise salad and enjoy pan seared scallops or 6 ounce grilled beef tenderloin for your main course. Conclude the meal with a handsome portion of a Dark Chocolate Truffle Brownie to share. Pricing is $55 per person or $80 per person with wine pairings.
Spa and Dinner Package
To further impress your loved one, book the Loews Don CeSar’s Spa and Dinner Package, which pairs a 60-minute Hot Chocolate Stone Massage at Spa Oceana with the aforementioned three-course Valentine’s Day dinner at Sea Porch Restaurant. In addition to the treatment, spend Feb. 14 enjoying access to all spa amenities including the steam room, whirlpool and spa rooftop. Pricing is $209 per person before gratuity.
