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.
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.
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.
