Where Valentine’s Day is concerned, there’s nothing more romantic
than dining out in New York City. While veterans at the reservation
game may have already secured some of the most coveted tables, there’s
still a handsome selection of enchanting venues. Here are 10 of the
city’s most romantic spots.
RAOUL’S 180 Prince St., between Sullivan & Thompson Sts., (212) 966-3518. This
quintessential SoHo bistro and its classic French fare make for an
effortlessly romantic evening. The three-course meal ($75) features
chestnut and foie gras ravioli as well as sea bass with Maine mussel
fondue. Request the cozy enclosed garden, then retreat to the upstairs
loft for an after-dinner reading from the resident fortune teller.
ELEVEN MADISON PARK 11 Madison Ave., at 24th St., (212) 889-0905. Serious
food lovers can feast on acclaimed chef Daniel Humm’s outstanding
French fare and partake in a sumptuous, seven-course tasting menu
($225), including diver scallops with black truffles. Dine under
exquisite vaulted ceilings or settle into one of the more intimate
dining suites at Danny Meyer’s lavish Flatiron destination.

With its stunning chandeliers and mosaic tile floor, this polished New

menu ($70) is scattered with a flurry of aphrodisiacs: oysters, foie
gras, scallops and artichoke hearts.
PUBLIC 210 Elizabeth St., between Prince and Spring Sts., (212) 343-7011. If
a dining room lit with one thousand flickering candles doesn’t sound
romantic enough, there’s also the exotic allure of an Australasian menu
with a five-course tasting menu ($90), featuring a New Zealand venison
chop with truffle parsnip mash.
