Old-School Romantic

If Valentine’s Day means a dozen red roses, a box of chocolates and a swoony card in a crimson envelope, then dinner certainly must end with a dessert as classic as these traditional gifts of love. A creme brulee, with its shatteringly sweet sugar crust and creamy vanilla bean-specked custard, fits the bill. Served by candlelight while violins play in the background, nothing could be more elegant.
