The question half of our population dreads: do you know what you’re doing for Valentine’s Day yet? Check out a few great dining options for couples, best friends, or anybody who simply loves to indulge in a great meal.
Think Romeo e Giulietta on San Valentino this year and celebrate with Obicà’s delicious couples tasting menu. The $120.00 prix-fixe meal includes four-courses of Obicà’s mouthwatering, contemporary Italian fare, paired with the perfect hand-picked wines for an extra fee of only $25.00. Pepper your loved one with delicious Carciofo – artichoke flan with pink peppercorns, peppermint and Parmigiana. Indulge in the melt-in-your-mouth risotto with lobster, followed by Dentice – a red snapper atop chickpea puree, Taggiasche olives, and fried sage. And, to end your evening, finish with a little dolce, a Semifreddo with white chocolate, vanilla, and red currant. Happy to send over a copy of the menu and any additional information upon request.
Hakkasan New York:

If you’re not a prix-fixe person and instead opt to splurge on specials, head to STK Midtown or Downtown on Valentine’s Day and indulge. At STK Midtown opt for the Sea Scallop in the Shell with Sea Urchin and Tobiko Caviar, or a play on classic Surf & Turf with a 16 oz Chateaubriand and Tempura Lobster. STK Downtown diners will revel in Crispy Fried Oysters with Caviar and Champagne Cream Sauce, and Wagyu Beef Dumplings with Bone Marrow and Red Wine Sauce. To pamper a date with these dishes on V-day, reservations are a must so book early! http://togrp.com/
