5 Places to Celebrate Valentine’s Day in NYC

Need to book a fancy dinner on Valentine’s Day? We have you covered with five places in NYC that will make your date night special!

LadyBird

East Village

Enjoy a five-course meal consisting of Beet Tartare, Warm Farro Salad, mouthwatering Ricotta Tortellini (in mushroom broth, with winter vegetables), Hasselback Zucchini (with herbed breadcrumbs and Sicilain tomato jam), and Strawberry Covered Chocolate for dessert! Priced at $75 per person, this tasting menu is perfectly balanced with savory and sweet options!

XYST

44 W 17th St.

For $75 per person—with optional wine pairing at an additional $35—XYST by Matthew Kenney brings you a Valentine’s Day special of four courses plus dessert. Enjoy incredible dishes such as the Tapenade Crostini (chevre, fennel), Sabzi Polow (saffron, cherry, pistachios, and herbs), Whole Roasted Celery Root (with red tabbouleh and tzatziki) and a delicate Mille Feuille (chocolate, coffee chantilly) for dessert.

Blossom Restaurants

Chelsea and Upper West Side

Dine with this prix fixe menu ($75 per person) that incorporates fresh ingredients to bring you dishes that taste even better than they look. You’ll have the options of the the Zucchini Blossom Tempura (cashew cheese-stuffed zucchini blossoms, marinated artichokes, cherry tomatoes) as a starter, the Pistachio-Crusted Tofu (beet-marinated, frisee, root vegetable crepe, and a lemon truffle creme) for a main dish and can enjoy Lavender Creme Brulee for dessert! Blossom offers gluten-free, soy-free, and nut-free options, all clearly labeled on the menu.

Candle Cafe

Upper East Side

Celebrate the night with a locally-sourced, seasonal, plant-based cuisine. Enjoy Grilled Artichoke (asparagus, red pepper, chickpeas, shallots, kalamata olives and basil aioli) and Saffron Ravioli (stuffed with vegetable almond cheese, spinach, roasted tomato sauce). Also choose from a selection of desserts, including the Almond Crumble (with strawberry sauce, almond vanilla cream, and topped with coconut ice cream). Sounds like a perfect end to a perfect night.

Plant Food + Wine

67 2nd Ave

We love a good wine pairing, and with dinner priced at $75 per person—wine pairing an additional $35—Plant Food + Wine is your Valentine’s Day spot to be. Their menu is full of health-conscious options. The four-course meal includes options such as the Truffle Toast (with cashew cheese and herbs on sourdough), Celery Root Soup, Gnocchi, and Blood Orange Cheesecake. You’ll want to reserve your table early.

 

What would a lovely Valentine’s dinner be without a gift of vegan chocolates after? Be sure to check out our article on where to order this treat for your sweet online.
