Affable owner Walt Harris does well at providing a harmony of expressive cuisine (the name refers to the position of heavenly bodies), extraordinarily helpful waitstaff and the certain, supremely seasoned masterpieces of chef Morton Oswald. The dishes are substantially flavored and sensually textured, floating from French to Asian to Southwestern influences. You may enjoy the Szechuan tempura lobster with grilled pineapple and Asian-vegetable salad here, and main courses may include elk tenderloin with sun-dried fig chutney and chili aioli. You will surely find something to your taste on the extensive wine list; and enjoy a glass while listening to Aspen's best live jazz. Need a reservation. No lunch is served.

Buffet de La Gare will take you right to Paris with its delightful bistro decor and authentic menu, as there's no cuisine more romantic than French. You may enjoy three-course menu that includes several potential aphrodisiacs: oysters with Osetra caviar, duck with peaches, sole with champagne truffle sauce and chocolate fondue.
Equus, The Castle on the Hudson
400 Benedict Ave.,

If plush chairs, white tablecloths and crystal stemware are romantic enough for you, you should reserve a table at Equus. And what you think about stunning views of the Hudson? Sounds like a romantic date dream? For a special day you may have a six-course menu that includes prosciutto-wrapped rabbit loin, a trio of oysters and a choice of halibut, beef or veal as an entree. The interior of the restaurant is decorated in tones of red and burgundy for the holiday.
The Hudson House
134 Main St.,

The romance of the restaurant décor with its red leather banquettes, tin ceiling and brass accents are nice, but the mural of the Hudson River on the west wall is stunning. You will enjoy the view while pampering yourselves with chef John Reynold's specials and owner Matt Hudson's silky-smooth chocolate truffle tart.
Iron Horse Grill
20 Wheeler Ave.,
Web Page: www.ironhorsegrill.com
The place looks even more romantic in the smooth lamplight of the former train station. Iron Horse makes you feeling elegant-but-cozy so well. You may start with peekytoe crab or a heart-shaped napoleon with asparagus and mushrooms, then continue with duck with broccoli rabe, salmon with butternut squash risotto or a rib-eye veal chop. And you may enjoy some of the best desserts with a passionfruit-raspberry tart or a chocolate marquis.
100 Titicus Road,
The restaurant décor is done in the 18th century style with wood-plank floors and fireplaces so big you could walk in them. Chef-owner Charles Steppe may serve a four-course menu with such indulgent ingredients as caviar and lobster, and tartlet chef-owner Maureen Steppe may present you with a tasting plate of desserts.
