Master list of best Dallas restaurants for Valentine's Day 2022

Bistro Menil Valentine's Day Dessert
We're looking not at a Valentine's Day but a Valentine's Weekend. Bistro Menil

The 2022 version of Valentine's Day falls on a Monday. What that means is that we have a Valentine's Day Weekend on our hands, since doing a special romantic dinner is a lot easier to execute on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, than it is a Monday.
