You’ve got two weeks left to score a reservation for Valentine’s Day, and we here at Downtown think it should definitely be at one of these unique spots. Read on for our 2019 Valentine’s Day dining guide.
The home of Sleep No More is ready to take you on a journey this Valentine’s Day! Start with dinner in The Club Car where you’ll enjoy a three course meal, live jazz music and the option of a private train car. If you’re looking for something a bit cozier, you can drink and dine on the roof at The Lodge at Gallow Green while sitting by the fire or cuddling in a private nook. Of course you don’t want to miss the Valentine’s performance of Sleep No More, which begins at 7 PM.
Bell Book & Candle doesn’t want vegans to feel left out this V-Day so they are offering two 7-course tasting menus, one of which is entirely vegan. Dishes will include black truffle topped cauliflower soup and surf & turf featuring grass fed filet and crab stuffed fluke. For the most intimate evening, ask to dine in the Pink Lady Room which seats two and has a private line to the bartender.
If you’re getting a hotel room for the special night, consider the Loews Regency on Park Avenue. Their special three-course menu includes lobster cream soup, yuzu marinated steak and a chocolate dome prepared by new Executive Chef Serge Devesa.
What’s more intimate than sharing food? Boqueria is offering three, special menus of tapas for Valentine’s Day featuring dishes like striped bass with chanterelles and cockles and molten chocolate cake. Tapas are also a great option for a Galentine’s Day get together!
Head to buzzy Taiwanese spot 886 to sip on a delicious Lycheé Rosé Cocktail while enjoying snacks like the sausage party (a sausage wrapped in a glutinous, sticky-rice bun) and soy-sesame glazed chicken wings.
Looking for an aphrodisiac? Ed’s Lobster Bar aims to please with $2 oysters all night long as well as cocktail specials, champagne deals, and whole lobsters.
If you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day the day after, check out Eataly Downtown’s Winter Wine & Food Festa. Enjoy drinks and bites all over the store, including oysters, chocolate, cocktails, and heart-y dishes.
