In case you haven't heard, tomorrow is Valentine's Day. But if you've neglected to make reservations at a chic spot in town, there's no need to panic. You can cook equally decadent dishes at home—and show your budget some love in the process.
From the Brian Malarkey–backed Herringbone in Los Angeles to The Smith in New York City, we canvassed the country's most coveted restaurants and chose a popular dish from each place that you can easily recreate at home for your sweetheart this Valentine's Day.
As long as you have a few pantry staples—olive oil, eggs, sugar and basic condiments—these recipes can easily feed you and your date for the price of just one entrée at a restaurant. Add a $10 bottle of wine and some candlelight, and you'll have a romantic night in to rival any reservation.
