Whether you are single or taken, there is no reason to miss out on spreading the love so here are the top things in NYC that will be a guaranteed good time.

SEAL THE DEAL

If you are looking to seal the deal with someone special, come aboard Hudson’s and The Duchess at Pier 81. “Wow” your date with a four course menu, roses and a champagne toast alongside the Statue of Liberty with a spectacular fireworks display on February 14th. Hudson’s will continue the romantic celebration all weekend long with dinner cruises on both Friday and Saturday evening sailing from 6:30pm — 8:30pm (boarding at 5:30pm).

WHEN CHAMPAGNE IS ALWAYS THE ANSWER:

Coco Chanel once said “I only drink champagne on two occasions: when I am single and when I am not.” We totally agree and recommend the below if you do, too:

Relish in a four-course meal from Irvington at W Union Square. Dishes like Arctic Char Crudo and Chestnut Agnolotti are on the the $65 pre-fixe menu, as well as a dessert platter for two. Even sweeter? There’s a $55 champagne pairing available as well, including Domaine Chandon, Veuve Clicquot, Dom Perignon and Moët Rose.

Midtown go-to Kingside in Viceroy Central Park is offering up an À la carte V-Day menu with dishes like Raviolo and a Moulard Duck dish for 2. Top the meal off with $55 champagne tasting featuring luxe selections like Veuve Clicquot and Moët Rose.

GO ABOVE AND BEYOND:
