With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, restaurants are gearing up for a pandemic-appropriate celebration, full of swoon-worthy takeout specials and socially distanced tables. According to Reader’s Digest, one Massachusetts restaurant stands out as particularly dreamy: Harvest in Cambridge.

The publication recently released a list of “The Most Romantic Valentine’s Day Restaurants in Every State,” and named Harvest as the go-to spot in Massachusetts.

“They have a back patio decorated with string lights, overhead heaters, and a gas fireplace,” the publication described. “There’s also an open-air dining room, which is weather permitting. Dine on seasonal food including lobster, oysters, berries, and exotic cheeses.”


Harvest will offer takeout and dine-in specials for Valentine’s Day, plus a Harvest Sweet Treats Gift Box created by executive pastry chef Joshua Livsey. Inside the box, sweethearts will find two Dulcey chocolate Bon Bons, two pate de fruit, and two chocolate almond dragees — perfect for capping off a romantic holiday meal.

Other New England restaurants that landed on Reader’s Digests’s list include Homestead Inn in Greenwich, Conn.; Inn by the Sea in Cape Elizabeth, Maine; Bedford Village Inn Restaurant in Bedford, N.H.; Castle Hill Inn in Newport, R.I.; and Junction Restaurant in Essex, Vt.
