There are choices galore when it comes to the food of love and dreamy settings for Cupid’s special day. Happy Valentine’s!

Cat & the Fiddle

Serve it with love… Cat & the Fiddle’s new cheesecake edition is reminiscent of a lychee martini, and therefore—in our books at least—aptly named Love Actually ($58.90). It comes with chunks of lychee and raspberry in a silky cream cheese filling spiked with Martini, paired with a rich buttery crumbed base, and crowned with blueberries, raspberries and strawberries, and a scattering of rose petals. (Three-day advance notice required.)
