There are 3 things that make a restaurant perfect for Valentine’s Day:

  1. Delicious food.
  2. Charming ambiance.
  3. Attractive lighting.

Take these three points, add a great guy, shake with a fabulush date night dress and you totes have a recipe for a fantastic Valentine’s Day. One of my favorite ‘holidays’ (even when I was single), it’s the perfect occasion to try out a cozy brasserie downtown, Italian rustica place uptown, or a rooftop resty in Midtown.
