Plan your Valentine’s Day with Requested

Guest Contributor | Callista Polhemus, Requested

Ahhh Valentine’s Day… that lovely day of the year when expectations are high, and price tags are higher. Where prix fixe dinners, white table cloths and reservations months in advance are the standard. And while I have nothing against an amazing high-end dining experience, there are SO many other ways to celebrate your love, and eat well. If you find yourself scrambling for ideas the day-of, have no fear… Requested is here!

We scope out the best locally-­owned restaurants and bars in town and works with them to offer tables for you to book that day. When you come in, we handle the payment, including an automatic tip you can adjust. Many of our restaurant partners even offer discounts at certain times of the day, and because your payment is handled through the app, your dinner date is none-the-wiser to your savings! Pretty cool, huh?

Here’s my Valentine to you: not only will I give you some awesome ideas that you can book on Requested, I will give you $10 to try it out! Just download the app and enter the code: DELISH, your credits will automatically be applied to your first booking. How sweet is that?

Located along bustling K Street, Mayahuel Tequila Museo boasts some of the best, most authentic Mexican fare in town. The beautiful interior features rich colors and textures, only matched by the bold food and artful cocktails.



Duck into de Vere’s Irish Pub and tuck away into a corner booth. Ask for their special Valentine’s Day menu which includes Red Wine-Braised Short Ribs and a Chocolate Nutella Pot de Créme.

Capitol Garage has been a Sacramento staple for decades, but many aren’t aware of the fantastic vegetarian and vegan options on the menu. Our favorite? We skip right to dessert… because no one can deny this vegan cookies & cream cupcake.
