For amazing skyline views and an upscale dining option, look no further than the River Cafe in Dumbo. This high-end restaurant right by the East River has put together an elaborate Valentine’s Day menu for $195 per person, including wagyu steak tartare, lobster ravioli and dessert.
Relax at the Spa
We all know that living in New York City can be stressful. So, why not take Valentine’s Day off and spend the day at an NYC spa where you can relax and unwind?
Body by Brooklyn offers romantic couple’s massages for $370 for two, including complimentary glasses of champagne. You’ll be treated to an aromatherapy massage with your loved one and have access to the spa’s saunas, steam room, hot tub, and cold plunge pool.
At Faina European Day Spa, opt for the Champagne Extravaganza for Two at $279, which includes a steam shower, a boozy body scrub, and a 30-minute aromatherapy body massage, followed by champagne and chocolate.
Take a Cooking Class
If you’ve ever wondered how to make that juicy steak or perfect burger you regularly splurge on at your favorite NYC restaurants, a cooking class is for you. Luckily, there is an abundance of cooking classes in New York City to choose from.
At The Institute of Culinary Education, attend The Bourbon Steakhouse couples class where you will savor a variety of dishes, including New York strip steak with bourbon cream sauce and truffled mashed potatoes.
