Our Favorite Red, White, and Pink-Themed Dishes for Valentine’s Day

With February comes Valentine’s Day, and we are no strangers to celebrating this cheesy but loving holiday! At the Red Hut Diner in New Jersey, we have food in a rainbow of colors, and we are always happy to share it with you in our restaurant or for takeout. For an overview of our best red, white, and pink-themed dishes, read on!


Start your Valentine’s Day off with a themed appetizer! We’d recommend our Grilled Shrimp Oreganata, featuring four jumbo shrimp, marinated in olive oil and lemon and lightly grilled to perfection. Looking for something more indulgent? Try our fresh mozzarella sliced tomatoes and Vidalia onions! These cheesy bites are the perfect pairing, and great for popping in your partner’s mouth!


Steaks are a classic Valentine’s Day dish; while they may not fit the red, pink, and white motif on the outside, a rare or medium-rare steak will certainly meet these criteria! For a more classic color combination, consider our spaghetti or other pasta, which will leave you satisfied and ready for dessert. Our shrimp santorini is lightly sautéed in olive oil, garlic, tomatoes, shallots, and kalmata olives, topped with feta and white wine, and sure to bring out the romance in your night!


For a romantic night, dessert is a must! Our pies might hit the sweet spot, or treat your lover to a banana split drizzled with chocolate and strawberry syrup, walnuts, and whipped cream.

No matter how you and yours do or don’t choose to celebrate Valentine’s Day, use this fun holiday as a reminder to love, care for, and pay attention to those who mean the most to you. Consider bringing your loved one to your favorite diner in NJ, or ordering a delicious meal to enjoy at home. Red Hut Diner has you covered either way!
