Your Perfect Match: NYC Dining Guide for Any Kind of Valentine’s Day

For some, Valentine’s Day is a wonderful day of presents, chocolate, and a romantic evening. For others, it can be a slightly annoying reminder of continued single-ness. No matter whether you’ll be spending Valentine’s Day with a significant other or with your girlfriends, our guide has the perfect restaurant for your celebration!


The New Couple: 

You’ve only been dating for a few weeks or months, so no need to overdo (or overspend on) Valentine’s Day! Try a cute coffee shop for desserts and espresso to keep the night low key and stress free. Try Prodigy Coffee in the West Village for great gourmet coffee and a small but sleek interior. Located at 33 Carmine St. (212) 414-4142.



Kahve’s motto is “love in coffee & food,” and if you arrange a Valentine’s date here, perhaps you’ll wind up with all three things. Their menu features specialty signature drinks like the Zebra Mocha, and coffees from all over the world. Located at 744 9th Ave. (212)256-0207.



The Married Couple:

You’ve been together for a while now, but Valentine’s Day should still be a special occasion! It’s a great excuse for an upscale, fancy night of gourmet dining with your loved one.

Try the $105 prix fixe menu at Robert, featuring three courses like jasmine pearl tea risotto with porcini and shaved truffles. It also features a gorgeous view and incredible décor. Located at the Museum of Arts and Design, 2 Columbus Circle, 9th floor.



Nothing speaks romance like French cuisine, and Le Périgord is the perfect restaurant for l’amour. Its $65 prixe fixe menu includes items like roasted salmon, roasted duck with seasonal fruits, and grilled filet mignon with black truffle sauce. Located at 405 East 52nd St. (212) 755-6244.



Single Ladies:

Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to go out for drinks with your girlfriends and avoid couples at all costs!

Try The Volstead in Midtown for a very Sex and the City-esque night. Try “the Bootlegger,” made with Crown Royal, peach Schnapps, Chambord and cranberry juice. Located at 125 E 54th St. For more information, call (212) 583-0411.


For a more themed night, try the Anti-Valentine’s Protest at The Roosevelt Hotel’s Vander Bar, which will be featuring half price cocktails and free wine tasting.

Vander Bar, 45th St. at Vanderbilt Avenue, (212)-885-6131
