Valentine's Dinner Deal at Robust Wine Bar

The best Valentine's Day dinner deal we've found so far has to be the prix fixe tasting menu offered at Robust Wine Bar & Cafe.

Three courses, each with its own three-ounce wine pairing, for $55 per person. Better still, the Webster Groves wine bar will feature this deal all through Valentine's weekend -- Friday through Monday. It might be a good idea to make a reservation, which you can do by calling 314-963-0033 or visiting Robust's website.

{If you know a restaurant that's offering as good a deal or better, let everyone know via the comments!}
