You know what's awesome? Cuddling up with your loved one on the couch. But on Valentine's Day this couple-y mainstay can feel a little old hat. So what should you do? Go out to dinner?

Definitely not.

Out, there will be waits, crowds and overpriced prix fixes.

No, what you should do is stay home but also kick it up a notch. These classy mains (and one dessert) are fancy meals for two that feel a whole lot more romantic than anything you'll order from a restaurant menu. Throw in a little time spent cooking together in the kitchen, and you have a Valentine's Day worth celebrating.
