Valentine’s Day in America’s Most Romantic City

Circa 1886 Valentine's Day

For its unique beauty, story book scenery and Southern charm, the praise for Charleston as one of the most romantic cities in America continues. Big names in travel like the Today Show, Business Insider and Travel + Leisure recently shared their love for Charleston, the luxurious Wentworth Mansion and its Circa 1886 Restaurant.

Travel + Leisure’s Sarah Storm named Circa 1886 One of America’s Romantic Restaurants, saying:

“Located in the original carriage house of Charleston’s stately Wentworth Mansion, the building dates back to—you guessed it—1886. And it still boasts much of its original charm, like the wood-burning kitchen fireplace, stable doors, and gleaming heart-of-pine floors. Retreat into one of the candlelit recessed booths set along one wall, designed to mimic the original carriage openings, to enjoy dishes like lamb chops with Carolina gold rice and striped bass with spaghetti squash and chestnut puree.”

Circa 1886 invites you to spend Valentine’s Day 2014 inside its romantic dining room over a six course, pre-fixe dinner. Pair each course with fine wine, flowers and candlelight for a perfectly memorable date night in Charleston. Reserve a table today – call 843-853-7828.
