Have you got a fashionable partner that you need to impress? Then Frenchie is the place to do it. The trendy restaurant is a favourite among fashion editors and creatives and also has an outpost in Covent Garden in London. The convivial wine bar is far from formal, but the buzzy atmosphere is perfect for a Valentine’s Day date. The place opens at 7 but get outside at 6.45 to secure yourself a table then start making your way through the wine list. The menu is ever-changing and often features cheesy favourites like burrata and baked camembert.
Located in the Four Seasons Hotel George V just off the Champs Elysees, Le Cinq is a decedent affair. If you want to see your date dressed up in their glad rags, then this is the perfect excuse. There’s gold leaf everywhere, chandeliers and plenty of brocade and the food is equally as flamboyant. The setting is fit for a king or queen, but if you can’t quite stretch to night in the hotel, then that’s no problem. You can stay in an equally romantic Paris apartment for couples and wake up in the comfort of your own home.
