We love the upscale and vibrant tastes that HSL has brought to Salt Lake City and couldn’t leave them off of our Valentine’s Day dining choices. We’re smitten by their General Tso’s cauliflower and noteworthy pork shank.

Of all the dining options for Valentine’s Day, Tin Angel serves up the most unique twist for adventurous Salt Lake City diners to enjoy. Similar to other holiday menus, The Tin Angel Cafe will serve a blackout menu. This consists of a 1st course with the option of a side salad or cup of soup. The second course is a blind folded course, a fun and relatively quick “finger food” course typically. Next is the main course, traditionally a seafood or steak option. And for the fourth course, of course, is dessert. This four course dinner is $40, but if you’d like to stick with their regular menu, they’ll be serving up those items as well. Be sure to read our full review on the Tin Angel Cafe, featuring some of their regular menu items!
