Get ready for mass pandemonium, people—Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday this year.
Therefore, it’s safe to expect reservations to be tough to get all over the city simply because nobody wants to piss off Cupid. But we stumbled upon a laidback alternative for anyone seeking something a little different.
At Saint Rocco’s New York Italian at Trinity Groves, they’re doing a special Love on the Rooftop promotion that takes “love in the air” to new heights. It’s the perfect way to cap off a romantic night, whether you’re cooking at home, Uber Eatsing a quarter pounder with cheese, or dining downstairs on incredible Italian fare. (The latter would be our recommendation—chef Jay Valley’s food is sooooo good.)
For $40 per couple (including gratuity), a Love on the Rooftop ticket gets you each a glass of bubbly and a vast selection of chocolate delights. Of course, the real draw for us is the downtown view.
We took that photo from the rooftop two weeks ago and think Saint Rocco’s is easily one of the most picturesque locales in the city.
Tickets will likely sell out closer to V-Day, so if chocolate and champagne sound like the best combination this side of you and your significant other, get to booking.
Otherwise, you might have to return to that flower tent in the Kroger parking lot once again this year.
