Holly Hotel’s Valentine’s Dinner Feb. 14-17

Holly Hotel’s Valentine’s Dinner Feb. 14-17

(Holly Hotel, event listing)

Holly, MI – Man has always been endeavoring to discover the mischievous powers of the dishes on his table. While these ideas have become trivialized in this age of vitamins and deconstructed flavors, we would be lacking the most basic element of gastronomy if we doubted one of the overriding truths about food: there is an undeniable complicity between table and romance.

It may be difficult to witness this phenomenon at a busy restaurant in the throes of a holiday weekend, but look carefully in the corners. There’s a certain mysticism shrouding a couple who have been married for fifty years, still holding hands, in the corner of our Main Dining Room. Or a young girl in the Dining Car, weeping as her date proposes to her over dessert. Try to find that while ordering a box of steaks over the Internet.

A magnum of love, a pinch of decorum, a touch of romanticism, an attractive plate and magic sets in. The magic begins in the kitchen, where young chefs never consider a red pepper to be a soulless vegetable. The magic extends to the tables where excited waiters still consider service to be a profession.

Of course, we will be busy, and reservations will be at a premium. We urge you to call early, and consider Wednesday or Sunday night reservations as an alternative to Thursday.

As we celebrate our forty-first consecutive Valentine’s Day, we continue to be excited about special events, romantic holidays and loyal customers. After all, we see the couple in the corner every week.

$65.00 per person.

Club Members & Guests, $52.00.

Reservations: 248.634.5208

In addition to our regular menu, this menu will be available Thursday, February 14 thru Sunday, February 17.
