For something a bit different, have dinner a deux in complete darkness, like the meetcute in About Time. Held at French restaurant Alchemy, waiters will guide just 24 diners to their seats in pitch blackness for an experience that the restaurant says is all about exploring your senses of taste, smell, touch and hearing. We just think it sounds fun. Mobile phones are banned (to prevent sneaky peeks) and diners are not told what they’re eating until the end of the meal. The three-course Valentine’s Day dinner for two, with one glass of champagne and one glass of wine each, is $1,998.
