The backdrop for many beloved romcoms, there are few cities more more romantic than New York City – simply said, we love our city. If you’re looking for a date night spot this Valentine’s Day, you don’t have to go far from your Octogon apartment! Whether you choose Manhattan or Queens, there are plenty of romantic spots just a short trip away. Here’s our top pick for a romantic spot for Valentine’s Day near Roosevelt Island.
Milk and Roses – One of of favorite spots for a romantic evening is in Greenpoint Brooklyn, just 15 minutes from your Octagon apartment on Roosevelt Island. A hipster but chic spot with library vibes and a cozy rustic interior, Milk and Roses is a Greenpoint mainstay. Serving American Cuisine with a Southern Italian influence, all of their products are ethically and humanely sourced featuring boutique wines, craft beer and classic cocktails.
We love this spot year round – it’s serious library goals for the book lovers amongst us – but at Valentine’s Day, their interior becomes extra warm and cozy.
