What do you mean you haven't made a dining reservation for Valentine's Day evening? It's four nights away and one of the busiest nights of the year for any restaurant. But as a public service, Fat City has a few suggestions for places still taking reservations for the so-called most romantic night of the year.

Taste, for example, in downtown Overland Park (7938 Santa Fe Drive, 913-766-0320) has openings for early diners — 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. — for executive chef Bobby Stearns' four-course $50 per-person meal that offers a first-course choice of a cold seafood tasting, crispy pork belly or duck confit on a house-made biscuit with a quail egg. This is followed by three more courses: soup or salad, a choice from three entrees (pork chop, Boursin filet mignon or grilled swordfish) and a dessert course.

There are early reservations (5:45 p.m.) and later options (after 8:30 p.m.) still available at the Westport Cafe & Bar (419 Westport Road, 816-931-4740) for the featured Valentine's evening prix fixe dinner featuring three courses for $40 per person. The five suggested starter-course choices include a trio of known aphrodisiacs: black truffle pasta, escargot, and blue point oysters. If you choose to dine late, the regular Westport Cafe & Bar menu will be available until 1 a.m.

Leawood's Sullivan's Steakhouse (4501 West 119th Street, 913-345-0800) is offering a special three-course prix fixe menu on Valentine's evening — it's a nice deal for $89 per couple — featuring choices from some of this restaurant's more popular items including shrimp and lobster bisque, a 16-ounce rib-eye, lobster macaroni and cheese, creamed spinach, and bananas Foster bread pudding. The only reservations currently being taken are for after 9:30 p.m.

The cozy Pandolfi's Deli in historic Columbus Park (538 Campbell, 816-569-3663) still has reservations open that night for the four-course meal prepared by chef Grant Cansler. The meal is priced at $40 per person and begins with a choice of arancini or crostini, followed by a choice of an arugula salad or a Caesar salad and a choice of entree: roasted vegetable lasagna, seared sea scallops, penne carbonara or braised short ribs. The dessert course is a choice of zeppoli or tiramisu.

You don't need reservations to have an intimate romantic meal dining a deux at the Town Topic (the location at 2021 Broadway is open 24 hours) or Chubby's (3756 Broadway, 816-931-2482) or the 24-hour Steak 'n' Shake in Overland Park (7510 West 63rd Street, 913-262-1800).

Any other suggestions, Fat City commenters? Just make sure your favorite romantic dining spot is still accepting reservations.
