If you're like most people I know (myself included), you still haven't made dining plans for Valentine's Day. It's okay. There's no reason to panic...at least not yet. Restaurants all over the city are still taking reservations for this fateful Friday and quite a few have special menus planned for the occasion. The following are just few options where you and your significant other can fancifully feast and fall in love all over again:

At the Maison Dupuy Hotel in the French Quarter, they are re-opening Le Meritage just for Valentine's Day with a four-course, prix fixe menu featuring dishes like Turtle Soup, Trumpet Mushroom Risotto, Roasted Filet Mignon and King Cake Bread Pudding. 504.648.6113 maisondupuy.com

Vegas Tapas Cafe in Metairie is hosting a St. Valentine's Day Aphrodisiac menu that will only be available on Friday, February 14th. This sexy dinner offers six "lusty" courses with dishes like Maine Lobster Bisque, Passion Fruit Sorbet and Stuffed Louisiana Quail. 504.836.2007 vegatapascafe.com

Emeril's, Emeril's Delmonico and NOLA Restaurant are all getting in on the V-Day action offering their own special menus all weekend long, from February 13th to the 16th. Get a Char Grilled Prime Beef Porterhouse for two at Emeril's, Caramelized Jumbo Scallops at Emeril's Delmonico or Chateaubriand at NOLA. emerilsrestaurants.com

It's no surprise that Dickie Brennan's restaurants also have planned prix fixe menus for Valentine' Day. Tableau's menu features a Surf & Turf with a petit filet and lobster hash or a Surf & Surf with Paneed Gulf Fish, Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse has a BBQ Lobster Tail or Twin Filets and Palace Cafe has Sweetbreads & Soft Shell Shrimp. frenchquarter-dining.com

Vacherie, "the home of authentic Cajun food in the French Quarter," is offering an a la carte Valentine's menu this Friday with special dishes sprinkled in among their usual fare like Buffalo Fried Frog Legs with blue cheese, Fried Oysters in Louisiana BBQ butter, a Boudin Stuffed Deep-Fried Hen with collard greens and Louisiana Pecan Pie. 504.207.4532 vacherierestaurant.com

Finally, for something just a little bit different, Cafe Adelaide is hosting a "Naughty Cupid Cocktail Brunch" on Saturday, February 15th. Enjoy four courses, each paired with a cocktail like a Steamed Bun open-faced sandwich with short rib debris and butter-poached Gulf shrimp with "Sex on the Pontchartrain Beach" made with Bayou spiced rum, brandy, orange curacao and almond citrus. 504.595.3305 cafeadelaide.com
