    It is pretty handy to have a list of tried and tested spots to hit for Feb14th. I have been to quite a few of them already, Le Select being one of them. I might stick to this lovely spot, considering both the menu and the wine list. However, there is still this La Bamboche place that would certainly do a good job satisfying our sweet tooth. I´d better pick up the phone now!
