Food of Love

It’s time for luuuving. Yes, February 14 is Valentine’s Day, and though the Germans don’t go in for it in a big way, some restaurants do come to the aid of those whose cooking abilities aren’t up to preparing a romantic dinner for two at home. How about Michaeligarten (Feichtstrasse 10, Tel. 435 52 40), which offers a three-course candlelit dinner for € 29? Or try the Arabella Sheraton Grand Hotel (Arabellastrasse 6, Tel. 519 63 02), which is putting on a four-course Valentine’s special. So, too, is Café Forum (Corneliusstrasse 2, Tel. 26 88 18), where the meal costs € 49 or € 69 with corresponding wines. For something more down-to-earth, head to the Löwenbräukeller (Nymphenburger Strasse 2, Tel. 52 60 21), or the Wirtshaus in der Au (Lilienstrasse 51, Tel. 448 14 00). Both are planning special events, although exact details were still to be confirmed when Munich Found went to press. If you can’t imagine getting passionate after a Mass or two of beer, then go for something lighter, with Brasserie Leon’s special Valentine offering (Bayerstr. 3–5, Tel. 54 32 17 87). If chit chat with your loved one is not enough to keep you entertained, then head to the Hard Rock Café (Platzl 1, Tel. 242 94 90), where a magician will perform a few tricks as you eat your candlelit dinner, in the hope of sparking a bit of magic, perhaps? <<<
