Ah, Valentine’s Day. Flowers, hearts, candies, all that gushy romantic stuff that ladies love, fellas have to endure and single people detest. I’m going to make at least one part of your evening on Tuesday, Feb. 14 easy: dinner. I called restaurants in Collingswood and Haddonfield and got the scoop on what specials they’re offering to celebrate everybody’s favorite Hallmark holiday.
(Some people I spoke to seemed unsure of certain details regarding their specials. Call and make sure they’re offering what you’re looking for before making reservations.)
The British Chip Shop: Regular menu, plus Valentine’s Day specials, including bacon wrapped shrimp, butternut squash risotto and flourless chocolate cake.
The Bistro: Menu will be posted on website today.
Da Soli: Regular menu, some Valentine’s Day specials, and a special menu for two. Menu will be featured on website soon.
The Little Tuna: Regular menu, as well as Valentine’s Day specials.

Zeppoli: The good news: Zeppoli, normally closed on Tuesdays, is making an exception for Valentine’s Day. The bad news: it won’t matter much to you. They’re booked solid.
