Named for D.C. native and music legend Marvin Gaye, Marvin is D.C.’s (and perhaps the world’s) first Belgian soul food restaurant. This unique dining concept pays homage to the singer’s trip of healing and self-discovery to Belgium in the early 80s with its eclectic cuisine and decorated interior (which features a painting of its namesake). With three bars, a beautiful wooden terrace and upstairs dining areas, Marvin offers diners an array of delicious dishes from the ever popular chicken and waffles to sumptuous coconut curry mussels.

The warm weather has finally arrived which means in D.C. Cherry Blossom season and lots of outdoor patios and rooftops that are perfect for dining and drinking al fresco.
Here are some my sweet spots in the District for romantic dining on Valentine's Day. Some are ooh la la pricey and others are more gentle on the wallet. And these aren't just for Feb. 14th..but cozy for any night of the week.
