Seafood is sexy! Oysters are a known aphrodisiac, so in my opinion they should always be served on Valentine’s Day. Oceana is one of my favorite seafood restaurants, and their Prix Fixe is really awesome this year. Choose from Lobster Roll Salad, Cape May Salt Oysters, Sea Scallops and Lobster Bolognese, close out with a Raspberry Macaroon or a Chocolate Custard. The menu has lots more to choose from! Three courses are $75 per person, and you may add Osetra Caviar to you meal for an up charge of $25.

Benjamin Steakhouse Prime
Come on now, you know Steak is king. Steakhouses usually have a very upscale vibe about them, which makes it a romantic place for love birds. I’m partial to this beautiful restaurant, the food is great, and the service impeccable. On Valentine’s Day you will be greeted with a Champagne toast, then choose from your three course menu (plus one side per person). Your options vary between Blue Point Oysters, Sizzling Canadian Bacon, or a New York Strip Loin, Bone-In Ribeye or Surf And Turf for appetizers and entrees. The sides offered are Prime Roasted Potatoes or Creamless Creamed Spinach, then choose desserts like New York Cheesecake or Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse. This menu also has much more to choose from, and at $99 per person it’s a steal!

The Italians are known for romance and love, so an Italian restaurant seems like a logical option for this holiday. This elegant restaurant dons a Michelin Star and is ranked as one of Zagat’s best restaurants in New York. This is the perfect spot for foodie lovers, no pun intended.

It is priced at $215 per person, which can be perfected with a $150 wine pairing.

The Milling Room
On the Upper Westside find this beautiful and spacious restaurant, serving New American cuisine. The interior alone will set a very romantic mood for any couple with its giant sky light and the candle lit tables. The food is outstanding and the cocktails are a standout in my opinion. Start out with a Carrot, Tumeric and Ginger Soup, then choose from Salmon Belly Tartare, Calamari Tagliolini, then Skate Grenobloise or Prime Filet Mignon. Your desserts include Warm Chocolate Torte and Sweet Cream Panna Cotta. This four course menu is offered at $85 per person, which can be upgraded with Black Truffles for $25, and wine pairings for an extra $45.
