BELLA’s Top Spots To Spend Valentine’s Day


Woo your person this Valentine’s Day by taking their breath away at one of New York City’s top restaurants. Here are our favorite deals going on for the romantic holiday:

The Baccarat Hotel is doing things a little differently for V-Day this year. They are offering a special afternoon tea ($100/person) featuring the Passion du Chocolat, a chocolate tea, from February 8-17th. Complete with both sweet and savory bites, guests can enjoy treats such as cacao lobster salad and raspberry smoked pistachio fudge along with rose scented evergreen tea and Perrier-Jouet.

Furthermore, they will be offering The Petal Pusher, a aromatic cocktail riff on the French 75 that is garnished with rose petals.

Head to the Meatpacking District to check out what Intersect by Lexus has to offer for Valentine’s Day! The new spot is offering up a prix fixe 4-course menu ($95), as well as an optional wine pairing for $50. The menu includes dishes like fluke, tagliatelle, duck, and chocolate malt. Best of all, the dinner comes with a special takeaway surprise!

State – New York, NY

The Empire State Building’s STATE Grill and Bar is serving a three-course aphrodisiac menu ($60) for the holiday. On the menu? Beau Soleil oysters, champagne mignonette and sturgeon caviar, along with lobster ravioli with a white truffle cream sauce and topped off with a Valrhona chocolate tart.

Head to the West Village and enjoy either of Bell Book & Candle‘s 7-course tasting menus — one vegan and one non-vegan ($75/person or $200/couple). Both options come with a bottle of Cremant de Bourgogne Brut. Non-vegan options include Surf & Turf with beef filet and crab stuffed Montauk fluke, quail egg Benedict, and lobster tacos, while the vegan menu includes roasted cauliflower soup, spinach and wild mushroom tacos and caramelized tofu.

Chef David Burke is whipping up a decadent 3-course menu ($75/person) at his restaurant Woodpecker by David Burke. Options include oysters “Rockefeller style,” tuna scottato, hay smoked lamb chops, wood fired branzino, and to finish, a poached pair with chocolate sauce.

Take It home: If dining out isn’t your thing, then we recommend picking up Petrossian & Luke’s Caviar Lobster Roll Kit ($198) to take home. The kit contains a half pound of Luke’s Lobster claw and knuckle meat (enough to make 2 caviar lobster rolls), 50g of classic Baika caviar, 6 pieces of Petrossian fudge, 2 plastic serving spoons and a Petrossian gift box. There’s nothing more fun than getting your hands dirty and preparing some top notch grub for you and your sweetheart.
