Nacional 27’s exotic Latin cuisine, inventive cocktails and steamy salsa dancing make the River North hot spot a sexy pick for Valentine’s Day dining. The restaurant is offering two prix-fixe options for the weekend of love, which will be served on Saturday, February 13 and Sunday, February 14.

The first seating, available from 5-7:45 p.m. on both nights, offers three courses (starter, signature tapas platter and choice of main course) for $45 per person. The second option, with seatings from 8-10:30 p.m., features five courses (starter, signature tapas platter, salad, choice of main course and dessert platter), plus a festive cava toast, for $75 per person. Both menus are detailed below.

Premiere champagnes offered by the glass ($39-$45), bottles of bubbles ($39-$650) and signature cocktails created by bar chef Adam Seger will also help guests fuel the fire. Seger’s concoctions include the Tiki Punch with exotic juices, spices, rum, Spanish gin and two straws ($17); and the Latin Long Island with Bacardi, Cazadores Tequila, Russian Standard Vodka, cachaca and passion fruit ($21).

Salsa dancing will start on Saturday at 11 p.m. and Sunday at 9 p.m., so plan on sticking around to make your move to the dance floor. Nacional 27 is open from 5 p.m. until 3 a.m. on Saturday, and the restaurant, which doesn’t usually keep Sunday hours, will be open for Valentine’s Day, Sunday, February 14 from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Call 312.664.2727 or visit www.nacional27.net to make your reservation.
