Don't get me wrong, I love Olive Garden, Red Lobster, P.F. Changs, Texas Roadhouse, etc. I freakin' LOVE them! But when I want to get romantic on Valentine's Day, I'm looking for something a little more authentic, original, unique... not sure of the right word. Where in Tri-Cities, Hermiston, Othello, Walla Walla, etc. are the most romantic locally-owned, non-chain restaurants?

I'll start the ball rolling:

  • Monterossos Italian (the train car in Richland)
  • Casa Mia in Kennewick
  • Saffron Mediterranean Kitchen in Walla Walla
  • Restaurant at the Marc (inside the Marcus Whitman Hotel) in Walla Walla
  • Blue Goose in Prosser
  • Chez Chaz in Kennewick

And don't forget, after dinner join us at the 2014 Sweethearts Comedy Soiree presented by A-One Refrigeration & Heating at the Kennewick Red Lion! If you love comedy but don't have a date, buy a singles ticket!
