Being romantic – is it a lost art? On those special occasions on which impressing your significant other is the key objective, why do people seem to just give up and go for the ordinary, the average, and more of the same? These aren’t things we should strive for on that one day of the year when it really matters – Valentine’s Day. At least get the dinner portion of the evening right…
If you’re looking for an unforgettable, romantic dining experience in beautiful landmarked spaces this February 14th, look no further than midtown Manhattan Italian fine dining restaurant Il Gattopardo and Upper West Side neighborhood icon The Leopard at des Artistes.
Both are stylish and sophisticated, but with a warm, friendly dose of Italian hospitality, and for the special evening, both restaurants will offer Executive Chef Vito Gnazzo’s authentic Italian dishes in the form of Valentine’s Day Dinner Specials, served along with his acclaimed a la carte menu.
Items will include the Chef’s “King Crab Salad with blood oranges, pickled onions and Castelvetrano olives”, a “Pan-Seared Veal Medallion with wild fennel pollen, served with sautéed spinach and roasted potatoes”, and the “Pennete alla Norcina, Italian sweet sausage and winter truffles, finished with mascarpone cheese.”
Treat yourself and that special someone to an unforgettable night of luxurious tableside pampering at two of New York’s best Italian restaurants. After Valentine’s Day, both of these restaurants are ideal for heavenly, upscale feasts or relaxing weekend brunches, and on Sunday nights, The Leopard even hosts a “BYOB Italian Sunday Supper”! Remember, reservations are highly recommended!
