No one knows NYC quite like a real estate agent who has their finger on the pulse of the City’s ever-evolving neighborhoods and revolving door of hot spots. Our agents are constantly pounding the pavement so who better to go to for insight on the most romantic places to take your sweetie to celebrate the official day of “LOVE”? Learn all about our recommendations for the most romantic spots in New York City:
“As an expert on Valentine’s Day (it’s my birthday), I think the most romantic restaurant in town is One If By Land on Barrow Street. Request to be seated by the arched windows looking into the courtyard. (And hope that a light snowfall happens!)”
“One if by Land, Two if by Sea” is the perfect romantic setting for dinner. They have 3 fireplaces and it is very warm and cozy, especially for a cold day like today. Two other great places for cocktails by the fire are The Library at the Hudson Hotel or The Bowery Hotel. Both have grand fireplaces and offer a romantic setting.”
“I love the lounge area at Per Se. Skip the reservation wait list and the huge bill in dinner seating and sit in their beautiful lounge overlooking Columbus Circle – you’ll have the same incredible views! They offer a delicious small bites menu, superb wines and champagne and excellent desserts! This is a great romantic spot to cuddle up and be pampered, while enjoying one of the best views in the City. They take walk in’s no reservations are needed!”
Lee M. Frankel:
“With four locations in Manhattan, La Maison Du Chocolat (I prefer the one on Madison Ave @ 78th Street) is THE place for a decadent & luxurious chocoholics dream treat. Their hot chocolate is like drinking a chocolate bar and is not to be missed! It’s perfect for gifts or a wonderful date experience with that someone special – or the “hope to be” someone special.”
Ashley Sternbach and John Harrison suggest River Cafe in DUMBO. “Its view of the Manhattan skyline is amazing,” notes Ashley.
Shaun Osher and Brittley Jarrell:
“Alta in the West Village. First of all, the food is amazing. And we both love eating small plates – whether it be tapas or appetizers. This way we also get to share. The wine list is perfect, and they have a Rioja there we will never turn down. The decor is lovely and charming as well.”
“Raine’s Law Room for its nondescript door. When you walk in, you are immediately transported to a 1920’s Speakeasy. It’s never overcrowded and has lots of dark nooks to enjoy their impressive cocktails in. Also, Death & Co (instead of Back Room) for its cozy, dramatic cocktail bar and great selection of small bites to share with your Valentine.”
Wishing you lots of love today!
