PLAN DATE: SAT / FEB. 16
Barack Obama once chose Blue Hill for a special occasion with first lady Michelle, so you know it’s got all the elegance and lowkey beauty for the perfect Valentine’s Day evening. It’s a locally sourced, seasonal menu from its very own farm just 45 minutes upstate, and the dimly lit room, abound with fresh flowers, crisp white linens, and subtle grey accents, is exactly the serene space to make for the intimate ambiance you crave to pay homage to your love in through a special and curated meal. We highly, highly recommend jumping on those reservations early.
Afterward, keep with the vibe while enjoying some bubbly in a 1920s inspired space at Air’s Champagne Parlor. Outfitted with large draped curtains, a marble-topped bar, and art deco fixtures, complemented by glass bubble chandeliers, velvet upholstery, dainty plate ware, and gold-accented furniture, this space creates the perfect ambiance to enjoy your drinks. The spot also serves some bubbly-friendly bites—raw oysters and hamachi tartare, tuna conserva and charcuterie, and caviar service. Love.
