Feed Your Heart at These NYC Hot Spots for Valentine’s Day



David Bouley’s Chef’s Pass Table will offer a special tasting menu, as well as a post-dinner champagne toast with the chef himself in the kitchen. You can choose between two arrival times (5-6:30pm & 9-9:30pm) and will set you pack $995 per couple. If you still want to experience Bouley but don’t want to spend quite that much moola, you can opt for the Bouley Test Kitchen, which consists of a cocktail reception, chocolate truffle class, a six-course tasting menu with wine pairings, as well as a parting gift of black truffles and sensual recipes to take home. All of this for only $430 per person and will take place on both Valentine’s Day and the evening prior. Last but not least, you can opt for a special six-course tasting menu for $245 and optional wine pairing for $145 on Saturday and Sunday between 5 and 10:45pm.

Get a head start on V-Day on February 13th at KOA, who will be offering a prix fixe menu for $125 per couple from 5-10:30pm. Diners will enjoy amuse bouche, Chinese roast beef with black bean sauce, steamed seasonal vegetables in garlic soy sauce, lobster sorba for two, and chocolate manju for dessert. This romantic spot, adorned with chandeliers and a bar full of sake is a great spot for date night.


On February 13th it’s all about being single at Zeppelin Halls Annual Stupid Cupid party. $4 pints of Coors Light, cocktail specials and hors d’oeuvres will keep you satisfied all night long. All those unattached will receive a red wristband at the door, showing off the heart on your sleeve (and your single status). a DJ will turn the biergarten into the hottest dance party around at 10pm, so make sure to bring your dancing shoes!

Obicá Flatiron is requesting that you pay homage to your inner Romeo and Juliet this year with their tasty couples tasting menu. The four-course prix fixe menu is $150, or an extra $25 for wine pairings. Some of the dishes include risotto with lobster, red snapper with chickpea puree, and semifreddo.

Technically, this spot isn’t in New York, but it’s a quick ferry ride away and boasts unparalleled views of the city skyline. Molos is a Greek-inspired seafood restaurant located right on the Hudson River. It will be serving up an extremely affordable $75 three course prix fixe menu, with options like shrimp santorini, char-grilled octopus, surf and turf and lobster ravioli. Escape the city at this romantic Weehawken spot Friday-Sunday.

For meat and seafood lovers, head to City Lobster & Steak, where they will be offering a $57 three-course prix fixe menu. Some Southern favorites will be included in your options, including ‘Down East’ lobster chowder and ‘French Quarter’ blue crab beignets, as well as New England lobster and mussel steamed pot and crispy skin Norwegian salmon. Dessert options will have you salivating, including chocolate bourbon pecan pie, creme brulee cheesecake and more.

For anyone looking for a little afternoon delight on V-Day weekend, The Palm Court is offering afternoon tea for two with champagne, which includes sandwiches and savories like sweet potato tart, country pate, smoked salmon terrine, and more, along with freshly baked scones and pastries and sweets. Score this treat for $120 per person from 12-5pm. Additionally, the restaurant will be offering a Valentine’s Day evening tier for two, which includes live jazz music and complimentary cocktail for two.
