Vegetarian on Valentine's Day

It may be too soon to be talking about that day when all singles remember they are indeed single. But if you're a vegetarian and want a night on the town, Deneb Williams at The Firehouse Restaurant in Old Sacramento has got your best root vegetables in his thoughts.

Along with a regular Valentine's Day menu listed on the restaurant's Web site, Williams has come up with a five-course vegetarian and vegan menu with such treats as roasted beet tartare - oven-roasted beets wth olive oil and herbs served with garlic crostini; a honey-lavender Waldorf salad with a poppy seed vinaigrette; lentil croquettes - roasted root vegetables and lentils, along with mashed potatoes topped with a wild mushroom and miso gravy; and desserts such as a berry crisp or a chocolate-raspberry mousse cake.

The set menu costs a steep $115, the same as the regular Valentine's Day dinner, but broccoli huggers need love too.
