Ready to use that four letter word? L-O-V-E? Just be sure to say it to that special someone across the table, and not the chef.
1 Per Se
She wants Napa. He wants New York. They say the best relationships are those that involve compromise. So, if Napa Valley view is not in the cards, perhaps a breathtaking view of Manhattan’s most beloved park will do the trick. Per Se modernizes and urbanizes The French Laundry with earthly materials, colorful accents, and historic symbols in a grandiose space overlooking Central Park. With unsurpassable charm and regality, Per Se has a distinct French identity that oozes romance.

Warning! Couples are bound to fall in love when dining at Daniel. A reservation at this Daniel Boulud's New York namesake is the end all be all when it comes to romantic restaurants. As if the reservation wasn't enough, make it extra special and request the sky box, where love is literally in the air in an intimate glass-enclosed dining salon suspended above the main dining room.

Danny Meyer's Maialino, located in the Gramercy Park Hotel is easily one of the most romantic dining rooms in the city. For extra points, snuggle up in Maialino's private wine cellar, tucked behind the stunning dining room. It's traditional ambiance and romantic setting paired with a prix fixe menu make for an intimate experience. We think a diamond ring would make for the perfect dessert.

This West Village gem is pretty much made for tables of two. We suggest starting with a bottle of wine from the thoughtfully curated wine selection. Dell'Anima means “of the soul” in Italian, and that meaning rings true in heartwarming dishes such as the Risotto Alla Pilota or the Bucatini Alla Arrabiata (a fan favorite).

The tree-lined, cobblestone streets of the West Village were made for love. A quiet stroll down Hudson Street leads lovers to the newly opened, Piora. Piora, meaning “blossom” in Korean, is the perfect setting for a budding romance. At this cozy intersection of Korean and Italian cuisine, culinary sparks will fly. Like Lady and The Tramp, we suggest sharing a dish. The Suckling Pig is sure to be love at first bite.
