Beautiful dishes—showcasing subtle red and pink shades—such as Nikkei Nicoise Salad Tapa, Scallops and Nikkei Gazpacho, Bigeye Tuna with Tofu Rouille or Striploin with Peruvian Chimichurri will delight guests.

Bar Manager Kam Tabarraee has crafted a mesmerizing cocktail for the special occasion: Love is in the Air. The engaging libation is made for two and served on a ceramic plate ($42), and includes two components—flutes filled with prosecco, and a serving jug consisting of a cocktail made with Aviation gin, Sombra Mezcal, rose and hibiscus syrup, raspberry and lemon shrub, dry ice, and rose petals. The cocktail is then poured into the flute, while the smoke from the dry ice and fresh rose petals create a dreamy setting.
