Las Vegas

Sin City might be glitzy and glamorous, but when it comes to food, there’s a great deal around every corner. Save your money for a swanky hotel room and trying your luck at the gaming tables. While a buffet isn’t as intimate as a quiet corner bistro, you can’t beat the spectacular array of food or the price. Try Bacchanal at Caesars Palace or the Carnival World Buffet at Rio. For around $30 a person, you’ll have plenty of cash left over to splurge on Champagne.

New York

The sky's the limit when it comes to fancy dinners in New York. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on gourmet food at an ultra-exclusive restaurant, go off the beaten path for romance in the big city. Hop on the subway or catch a quick cab ride to the Village for dinner at one of the best deals in town. The Place is an intimate restaurant with fantastic prices on meals. It’s famous for its romantic Valentine’s Day dinners, so check the website early and book as soon as you can for an unforgettable, budget-friendly dining experience.

Paris

If you’re looking for a truly memorable Champagne dinner, book a dinner cruise on the Seine in Paris. What could be more romantic than gently cruising down this iconic waterway through the most romantic city in the world? With fixed prices around $50 per person, it’s an incredible deal on an unforgettable evening. You can book a dinner cruise in Paris online at Calife. If you’re more of an off-the-beaten-path type, eat at a small bistro before or after the cruise and enjoy Champagne as you cruise through the heart of Paris.

Miami

Can’t make it to Paris? Delight in authentic French food in the heart of Coconut Grove. Le Bouchon du Grove, a sidewalk cafe, features breakfast, brunch and dinners that locals rave about. Take your valentine on a tour of Miami’s vibrant shopping and arts district for a Champagne dinner that won’t break the bank. When you’re finished with your meal, enjoy the active nightlife in the neighborhood or sip Champagne as you people-watch on the bustling streets of Miami. Don’t miss the authentic steak tartare.
