WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Maybe your skills in the kitchen are less than romantic, or chocolate just won't cut it this year. One of Westchester's many restaurants could help you feel the love this Valentine's Day.

If you and your sweetie love live music, New Rochelle's Alvin and Friends is a great option. Along with live entertainment from the Mellowtones, it will be offering a special prix-fixe menu for the occasion. For $75 a person, you get three courses in Alvin's signature contemporary Southern Caribbean fusion style and a champagne toast.

For a more traditional seafood dinner, Moderne Barn in Armonk is an option. Chef Ethan Kostbar will be serving up tuna sushi, Beausoleil oysters and a roasted Atlantic Cod paired with red wine risotto, apple parsnip puree, swiss chard, porcini mushrooms, and kumquat chutney.

Stop in between 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. and enjoy the special menu for $85 per person. If you really want to splurge, shell out $130 to add wine pairing.

Can't make it out on Feb. 14? An American Bistro in Tuckahoe is offering its menu from Feb. 13-15. Its three-course prix-fixe menu is on the lower end at $50 a person, packed with delicious options such as the Short Rib Ravioli, served with mascarpone, garlic, white wine and pine nuts.

If you prefer an intimate, secluded meal in the countryside, Vox Bar and Restaurant in North Salem is offering a $75 prix-fixe menu. The "Roasted Duck Montmorency," served with "Forbidden Black Rice," haricots vert and cherries-brandy sauce might just steal your heart away from your beau.

Finally, for chocolate lovers, Benjamin Steakhouse of White Plains has shared its easy recipe for chocolate-covered bacon.

hey Valentine's Day is all about showing "love," giving a card or flowers or chocolates to a loved one. All of that's good, right? Wrong .

Valentine's Day is big business. According to the National Retail Foundation, Valentine's Day for 2012 added around $17.6 billion to the U.S. economy—making retail spending for this day the second-largest behind Christmas.

For a lot of people it's the holiday to express your love to someone special. According to Kemberly King, a business instructor at South University, young adults ages 25-34 spend the most on Valentine's Day gifts. Interestingly, men will outspend women—almost 2 to 1—with the biggest categories for all spending

Of today's front page articles in the Mount Vernon Daily Voice, not one is about Mount Vernon. Major changes are underway that will change the face of downtown MV. The City Council and Planning Board are meeting continuously. Yet the DV reports nothing. Is there someone to complain to? Who's in charge of handing out these franchises? We can all find somewhere to eat on Valentine's Day. We get weather reports from many other sources. What we need is coverage of the important issues in our community. thanks
happy valentines day
