Ah, we are of the school that cheesecake goes with anything, but will try to exercise a little restraint on your behalf. We assume you are looking for a meal that’s on the light side so that you have some room for the cheesecake. Also, since Valentine’s Day falls on a weeknight this year, most people need a menu that’s fairly simple to prepare.

For the main course, you might like a veal piccata or chicken piccata , grilled or broiled lamb chops, or chicken breasts sautéed simply and served with a reduction of wine and herbs. Steamed asparagus or a fresh salad would be a good complement to any of those choices. Some good bread or wild rice would round out the meal.
