Every couple has their own interpretation of a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner. For some, it’s a candlelit dinner at a fancy restaurant. For others, it may be takeout out on the couch with Netflix. But I think we all agree that one theme rings true for almost all couples - sharing a delicious meal together is key. No matter what your Valentine’s Day couple style, Frisco has something for you. Check out these Frisco Valentine’s Day Dinner Destinations to find the right spot for you.

PLAYFUL COUPLE: Nerdvana
If you and your significant other enjoy playing games- we’re talking actual games here, not playing games with my heart- Nerdvana is your place, hands-down. Located in Frisco Square, Nerdvana offers delicious food and drinks with a side of game play. You can choose from canoodling over the latest Mario Kart- or myriad other systems and games- in a video game booth, or traditional board games from Battleship to Catan at the table. Believe me, Nerdvana knows what they are doing when it comes to games. The restaurant concept came from the game creators at Gearbox itself, whose offices are located directly above Nerdvana on Frisco Square. And it’s not just a gimmick- the food at Nerdvana is no slouch, ranging from burgers and flatbreads to Chef Mike’s Chicken Fried Filet Mignon with mashed potatoes, gravy, and elotes. On Valentine’s Day, Nerdvana will offer you time to connect with your loved one in a light and fun-filled environment.

ADVENTUROUS COUPLE: Edoko Sushi & Robata
The beauty of Edoko Sushi & Robata lies not only in their extremely impressive and giant fresh sushi and sashimi menu, but also in the robata side of the menu. What is robata? The Edoko website explains: “Translated as ‘around the fireplace,’” Robata is an “ancient Japanese custom of cooking in a charcoal-fired hearth… The beauty of robata is found in its simplicity and the way it embodies everything that Japanese cooking is about: achieving the divine through humble means.” Edoko is the perfect place to indulge together over some truly delicious and beautiful sushi, as well as mixing it up with some tsukune (chicken meatballs) or gyu yaki (filet mignon) robata, among so many more offerings.
