Casa de Bandini in Carlsbad reveals a new sizzling Valentine’s Day menu – sure to add some heat (and a bit of sweet) to a romantic evening.

Start by sipping Casa de Bandini’s Margarita Valentina (priced separately), made with pink-hued tequila, Cointreau, sweet and sour, and a splash of cranberry juice.

The special holiday dinner menu, priced at $25 per person, includes a Mexican Shrimp Ceviche appetizer and choice of three unique entrées:

· Enchiladas Coronitos: Two delicious crab enchiladas topped with velvety jalapeñocheese sauce, crowned with seared scallops and garnished with avocado, sweet peppers, and bacon bits
· Carne Asada Tampiqueña: Juicy carne asada topped with grilled onions and California chiles
· Pollo Valentino: Broiled chicken breast served over a bed of achiote seasoned vegetables with a side of chipotle mashed potatoes and black beans

Dinner ends on a sweet note with Corazon de Flan – creamy caramel flan served atop a heart shaped triple chocolate cake and garnished with chocolate sauce and whipped cream.

Using the freshest ingredients and a multitude of sauces to make unforgettable authentic regional cuisine, Casa de Bandini’s menu showcases past favorites as well as innovative new entrees, celebrated seafood dishes, healthy choice options and, of course, the same frosty, giant margaritas that have become a staple at each of Diane Powers’ restaurants – Casa de Pico in La Mesa, Casa Guadalajara in Old Town, and, soon to open, Casa Sol y Mar in Del Mar.

Casa de Bandini is an esthetic delight – decorated down to the tiniest detail with precise intention and hand-crafted furnishings that evoke a genuine impression of the color, warmth and splendor of Mexico.
