It’s February, the groundhog saw his shadow, and Valentine’s Day will shortly be upon us. If your idea of celebrating includes a night out, the following Cape May restaurants will be serving a special holiday menu. To guarantee seating, we recommend reservations where available.
We’ll continue to update this post as new information comes in.
Beach Plum Farm
❤️ February 10, 11, and 14 from 6pm to 9:30pm
Beach Plum Farm’s executive chef is preparing a five-course menu that will be served in the farm’s Hoop House. Start your meal with oyster stew and a winter greens salad, then a course of potato gnocchi, a roast duck breast for dinner, and finish with a bittersweet chocolate mousse.
$124 per person. Beach Plum Farm is BYOB and encourages you to bring a bottle of wine (or two!).
Elaine’s Valentine’s Dinner and Stand-up Comedy Show
❤️ February 11 from 7:30pm to 11:30pm
If laughter is more your speed, check out the Gala & Comedy Show at Elaine’s. Choose from eleven different entrees on their Valentine’s Day a la carte menu, which also offers a selection of starters and desserts—plus Elaine’s has a full bar. After dinner, sit back for a 90-minute comedy show. And your table is reserved for the evening, so no need to rush or worry about finding a seat.
Show tickets are $50 per person, plus the cost of dinner and drinks. Due to limited seating, reservations are required. Reserve your spot by calling (609) 884-1199.
❤️ February 14
Chef Carl Messick has designed a four-course menu that opens with an amuse bouche and offers two selections for each of the four courses. For the first, select from yellowfin tuna tartare or seafood stew, then a homemade orecchiette pasta with Maine lobster, or slow-roasted pork belly. The entree course is either New York strip steak and scallops, or a crispy duck breast with foie gras. And for dessert, choose from a steamed toffee pudding or chocolate panna cotta. (We’ve had both, and they’re both excellent.)
$115 per person, plus beverages and gratuity. Grana BYOB is…BYOB! So feel free to bring a favorite bottle of wine.
