Some argue that Valentine’s Day is the worst dining night of the year — from pricey prix fixe menus trying too hard to include obligatory “aphrodisiac” foods to panic around snagging reservations. It’s easy to see why the day gets a bad rap. But this year, since the February holiday takes place in the midst of the novel coronavirus pandemic, people are encouraged to order in and stay home.

So whether romance is in the air or you’re looking for something different that weekend, Eater is here with picks for takeout Valentine’s Day specials, prix fixe meals, and meal kits from Austin restaurants plus places to score sweets and other inspirational guides.

The clock is ticking — book those orders now, because many of these meals will sell out soon.
