Nothing says “I love you” like meat. In this romantic, palazzo setting, share a dry-aged bone-in rib-eye ($144) for two or a Florentine porterhouse a deux ($160). But if your relationship is more “call me maybe” than “have my baby,” tuck into whatever the bar is whipping up as its current farmers-market cocktail and see where the night takes you.

Following the kitchen’s lead, Fox Restaurant Concepts beverage manager Mat Snapp is committed to using house-made syrups and infusions at Culinary Dropout wherever possible. “Everything tastes better when you put time, effort and energy into it,” Snapp says. His original creation, Bells & Whistles, actually had its beginnings in the kitchen, at a barbecue festival’s cocktail competition. “I wanted a cocktail that mirrored all the great things about barbecue: some smokiness, some sweetness and some heat.” Simple syrup infused with charred bell pepper and jalapeño does the trick nicely.
