In the Big Apple, the options are virtually endless in terms of romantic dinner spots, V-Day or not. We’ve narrowed it down to six special supper spots.


This intimate spot, a one Michelin star restaurant in Alphabet City, is known for its Asian-inspired cuisine and hip, unique atmosphere that features reclaimed materials. Try the snow crab with noodle, squash, and dashi butter. Or, the salmon with leek, caper, and miso. For an even more romantic experience, order the “Pig Out.” It’s a double-portion of berkshire pork and spicy peanut noodle designed for sharing.

L’ATELIER de Joël Robuchon

Looking for the creme de la creme of French restaurants? Look no further than the two-Michelin-star L’Atelier. While the restaurant has several outposts around the globe, including locations in Vegas, London, Paris, Hong Kong, and Singapore, there’s nothing quite like the New York experience. You can’t go wrong with any of the dishes. They have everything from milk-fed veal chop and spiced Long Island duck to grilled Wagyu rib cap.

Bowery Road

Serving up farm-to-table dinner dishes that are inspired by the Union Square Green Market, Bowery Road is all about fresh produce and unique flavors. Vegetarians, rejoice! This focus on veggies and grains means that there are plenty of meatless options to choose from, including roasted cauliflower, rigatoni, and a grain bowl.
