With less than 24 hours to go before Valentine’s Day, more than a few of you may be panicking that you haven’t planned any elaborate Valentine’s Day ideas for the big day tomorrow. First, I want to scold you on your procrastination. Then, I want to tell you to breathe, because according to OpenTable, there are still 220 local restaurants with availability for two people on Valentine’s Day. We don’t want you to be in the doghouse on Valentine’s Day, so we’ve mined through them all and picked the most delicious restaurants that have open reservations between 5:30pm and 9:30pm on Thursday, February 14th.

This is the perfect location to peep at Faneuil Hall’s romantic red lights. They also have a great selection of Valentine’s Day-themed cocktails in honor of the holiday.

Fall in love with some of Boston’s best burgers.
Beacon Hill Bistro – 6pm, 6:30pm, 8:30pm, 9pm
