    Is there anything more romantic than the Caribbean? That's a rhetorical question, perhaps, but you can happily grok the answer at Tavel Bristol-Joseph's award-winning restaurant, where a six-course shared menu of island-inflected flavors includes a take-home dessert. Serving suggestion: Maybe duck into the kissing booth while you're there, you lovesick loons, and make with a little PDA?
    Tue., Feb. 14. $125 (drink pairings extra).
