Nestled in the heart of the Village of Winona, overlooking the Winona Lake canal, you’ll find Cerulean Restaurant, home to superlative sushi, bountiful bento boxes, and delectable desserts that will tantalize your taste buds. Get a load of some of these desserts: crème brulee bread pudding, chocolate pralines crunch, blood orange sorbet. (#dontmindifido)

The atmosphere at Cerulean is perfect, with quiet and private high-back booths lining the walls. Cerulean is a Valentine’s Day favorite — and the ideal spot for a quiet dinner out with friends. 

However,  if you’re more of a social butterfly, you might want to walk right past the quiet booths and head out to the Garden. 

The Garden is everything you’re imagining: An outdoor courtyard, lined with boxes of home-grown herbs and veggies. The dining area delights the senses under white lights and there’s a buzzing bar with knowledgeable and friendly bartenders. Throughout the warmer months of the year, there is live music, and on most nights, you’ll find a casual, no-rush atmosphere there that lends itself to long conversations and big laughs.  

Why are we talking about the Garden in February? Because the Garden got a serious upgrade this winter. 

IGLOOS! Adorable, cozy, warm, and glowing igloos. You can enjoy an amazing meal under the stars, or in the snow, for that matter, without sacrificing comfort or social distance. 

However, you’ve got to reserve the igloos. So, call ahead – what would be sweeter than Valentine’s Day dinner under the stars? 

That’s an easy question: Valentine’s Day dinner under the stars, in a private glowing igloo, with superlative sushi, bountiful bento boxes, and delectable desserts!

Please don’t take my word for it; you’ve got to give Cerulean a try. You won’t regret it.
