Black Thursday

The award for most over-the-top Valentine's Day special Eater has found goes to Plume Restaurant. There, couples will end their five-course meal with the Love Letter Brûlée, a crimson, envelope-shaped brûléed crêpe filled with housemade strawberry marmalade and raspberry mousse. The dessert is inspired by the sweet nothings written in Thomas Jefferson's "Head and Heart" letter to a woman he fell in love with while serving as the U.S. Minister to France in 1786. —Adele Chapin
