Amor en ESPAÑA

Joan Miró is one of the most famous Barcelona-born modern artists, with museums across the globe featuring his work. Luckily for you, the Kreeger museum in D.C. will be featuring his experimental paintings just in time for Valentine’s day. Known for whimsical shapes and bright colors, this will be a super fun exhibit for you and your S.O.

Let’s French

The Avalon Theatre showcases modern French films every third Wednesday, and their upcoming film, titled “Things to Come” falls right on February 15th (we hope your valentine is patient). If you don’t speak French, don’t worry—they’ll have English subtitles, but you may just want to brush up on your French skills first.

Italian: The language of love

What better way to learn about Italian culture than seeing the world from the perspective of it. 7439, a photo exhibit by Italian-born Renato D’Agostin will be on display at the Italian Embassy through April 2017. Just make sure to request your visit date and time on their website first. Who knows? You may end up with the whole place to you and your date!

Arabian Nights

Zaytinya offers a combination of Middle-Eastern, Greek, and Turkish plates in a beautiful light and airy setting. This Valentine’s day they have a set menu featuring some of their most popular dishes and the chef’s, who has spent years traveling across the globe. Che romantico!

Viva Brazil!

If you’ve never been to a traditional Brazilian Steakhouse before, Fogo de Chao is the best place to start. The second you step inside, you’ll be transported to the bright streets of Brazil, where the owners grew up (and have locations of this spot). They offer a classic market table and feijoada bar, inspired by Brazilian markets. If you want the full experience, we suggest brushing up on your Portuguese first.

Deutsche Date

With live classic music after 6pm almost every day of the week, Cafe Mozart is the perfect place if you’re looking for something a little different this Valentine’s day. You’ll have to walk through a traditional German deli to get to the back of the restaurant where spaetzli, sausage, and schnitzel are served. With beer flowing and music playing, what more could you ask for?

Russian Romance

More like entering a Russian home than a restaurant, Mari Vanna wants to give their diners a classic Russian experience. Not surprisingly, they have more locations in Russian than in the States, and with everything from three floors of classic decor to a full vodka bar, you’ll feel like you’ve just hopped off a plane.

Chinese Getaway

Head first to the Friendship Archway in the heart of D.C.’s Chinatown to celebrate your friendship or relationship. Next stop? A unique and delicious dinner, of course. While we love the traditional Szechuan and Shanghainese food that is abundant in many major cities in the States, we’d like to take the time to highlight one of our favorite restaurants in D.C. that celebrates the far-reaching influence of Chinese food and the diversity behind it. Jose Andres’ China Chilcano pays homage to Chinese Peruvian food, also known as chifa, and its dishes will take you on a world tour.
