It's a little bit of Paris right here in Durham. From the mirror behind the bar to the blackboard specials, the look and feel of the place ​is very European. But the well-trained waiters speak perfect English and you don't need to translate the menu. Which, by the way, is fabulous. Great garden/outdoor dining area. Inside is warm, candle-lit and cozy.

Fondue restaurants are always voted most romantic. Maybe it's the food sharing, maybe it's all that chocolate. If you want to go all out, make a reservation and order the Durham Melting Pot's Lover's Lane package. It includes private seating in a curtained booth, a special four-course menu, a bottle of wine, roses and a souvenir photo. $150 per couple. Reservation required.
