Make Your Own Chocolate

Chocolates and Valentine’s Day go hand in hand. Celebrate this romantic holiday by learning how to make your own candy during a special class at Tache Artisan Chocolate. The shop’s owner will help you master the proper technique while you sip champagne and take a bite out of your chocolate creations.

Eat Under the Stars

Make your dinner date more glamorous by getting tickets to the Romance Under the Stars event at the American Museum of Natural History’s Rose Center for Earth and Space. Your night will begin among the asteroids, with soft jazz music setting the scene. At the event, you’ll be able to enjoy an open bar of cocktails and champagne, as well as delicious hors d’oeuvres and chocolate that you both are sure to love. An hour later, you’ll head to the Hayden Planetarium, where an astronomer will tell you lovely stories based on the mythology of the cosmos.

Dinner in the Dark

A lush, multi-course dinner awaits you at Camaje – all while you are blindfolded. Without your sight, you and your partner’s senses are heightened. Smells, textures and sounds in the room will all become more intense. This is a unique experience that you both will never forget.

Love in Times Square

Say “I love you” in Times Square this Valentine’s Day at the annual Love in Times Square event. Watch other couples celebrate their love for each other on Duffy Square’s great red steps and share a kiss in the Heart of Hearts kaleidoscope kissing booths. You’ll see surprise proposals, wedding ceremonies and even vow renewals! We guarantee you’ll fall in love with each other all over again.

Dine in The River Café

Eat dinner at one of the most romantic restaurants in NYC – The River Café. This Brooklyn restaurant is a little bit pricey, but why not splurge on Valentine’s Day? You and your partner will fall in love with this romantic waterside eatery, which features breathtaking views of the New York skyline. There are two prix-fixe menus you can choose from: a three-course meal for which you choose the entrees, or a six-course meal that the chef handpicks. Best dishes include the rack of lamb or one of their delicious lobster specials. It’s truly a culinary destination.

Stroll Through Chelsea Market

Exploring Chelsea Market is a great way to spend your Valentine’s Day in NYC. Located in the Meatpacking District, Chelsea Market is one of the best indoor food halls in the world. Chow down on some delicious tacos at Los Tacos No. 1, take a bite out of pasta-tasting menu at Giovanni Rana, or enjoy a nice glass of wine at Chelsea Wine Vault. With over 35 vendors, you and your date will have no problem finding something delicious to eat. Chelsea Market is not only a food hall, but also a host to many unique shops. You can shop for vintage designs at Artist & Fleas or browse the wide selection of books at 192 if you both love books.
