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.
