With Omaha steaks, Nantucket scallops, and fresh Hawaiian fish making frequent appearances on a constantly evolving menu, it's easy to see why Steven Blandino named his restaurant Americana. Yet the chef likes to mix in a few Asian and European elements here and there as well, taking inspiration from the melting pot mentality that built our great nation. The Desert Shores favorite has a sturdy, timeless dining room, but the best seats (when the weather is right) are in the outdoor garden alongside Lake Jacqueline. Americana is usually closed on Mondays, but will be open on Valentine's Day with a special menu for $140 per person that includes a Japanese A5 Wagyu Sushi Roll, Tuna Carpaccio or Lobster Bisque, Beet and Strawberry Salad, a Surf and Turf of Filet and Dover Sole, and a Chocolate Berry Bar dessert with an optional wine pairing for an additional $35 per person. Show up right before dusk for a romantic mood that will last long after you've finished dessert.
