If you are looking for some fun ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, why not consider a destination based on your partner’s love of food. Here are a few recommendations.

Soul Food

Atlanta, GA

It’s hard to pick just one city in the South that’s home to the best soul food restaurants, but Atlanta takes the spot for its variety of options from tradition to fusion as well as it being a great couple’s destination. Share a plate of fried okra, cornbread, and collard green with that special someone at these top, traditional soul food restaurants: Busy Bee Café, Annie Laura’s Kitchen, Big Daddy’s Kitchen, Who’s Got Soul, Q Time, and King Southern Delight.

Caribbean Food

New York, NY

When it comes to options, New York is certainly a city that has plenty. From wood-fired jerk chicken to Guyanese chow mein, just about every island cuisine in the Caribbean is represented throughout New York’s five boroughs. It can be overwhelming to know where to start your foodie voyage in this city, so here are a few spots to begin your journey: Glady’s, Pearl’s, Sister’s Caribbean Cuisine, Miss Lily’s Favourite Cake, Freda’s, and Puerto Viejo.
