Lovin’ and the Oven: Hart House Valentine’s Menus Sure to Please

Wise people know that the way to the heart is through the stomach. That’s why Hart House is offering two sumptuous menus for Valentine’s Day this year: one for in-person dining, as well as a convenient take-out option.

The Hart House Valentine’s Take-Out Kit for Two is an easy way to impress your sweetheart with your culinary prowess. It includes pre-cooked prawn skewers and braised short ribs in red wine jus that to heat up at home, as well as roasted marble potatoes, seasonal vegetables, an antipasto platter, and chocolate strawberry tiramisu cake for dessert. It’s also easy to add a bottle (or two) of table wine or bubbly to your order, saving a trip to a retail shop.

If you prefer to treat your sweetheart to dinner in the elegant surroundings of Hart House’s lakeside estate, the restaurant’s dining room will be serving a deluxe Valentine’s Day menu on the 14th.

About Hart House Restaurant: The three-acre estate on which Hart House stands was first purchased by New Westminster businessman Frederick Hart in 1906. Frank Macey designed the Tudor Revival building. Paul Smolen and three original partners recognized that the house and grounds presented a unique opportunity to create a premier culinary destination. Hart House Restaurant opened its doors as a restaurant in September of 1988. In 2000 Paul Smolen took sole ownership of the business along with his wife Carol Smolen. The combination of lakeside setting, unrelenting drive for fine cuisine, and warm, welcoming service continues to enchant Hart House guests.
