February 4, 2020

Valentine’s Day is coming up here on Roosevelt Island on Friday, Feb. 14, but don’t worry – we have lots of eateries near your Octagon apartment that are sure to impress your Valentine this year.

If you’re debating over which local eatery to make a reservation at to celebrate this romantic holiday, check out the restaurants below. You won’t have to travel far and you’re sure to have a meal that both you and your date won’t forget!

Uva, located at 1486 2nd Ave, New York which is 18 minutes from your Octagon apartment, is a cozy, rustic spot with a patio and back garden which draws lively crowds for small plates and wine.

An NYC favorite since it opened its doors in 2005, Uva ranks as one of the city’s most-loved wine bar restaurants. The vibe is relaxed, with diners spread out between the main room, the private wine cellar and the year-round backyard patio. Uva’s menu, which ranges from small, tapas-style plates to classic and updated entrees, is also perfectly complemented by an extensive wine list.

Fig & Olive, located at 808 Lexington Ave, New York which is a 16 minute drive from your Octagon apartment, is an upscale restaurant and bar serving seasonal Mediterranean fare prepared with flavored olive oils.

Inspired by the abundance and diversity of the Mediterranean region, Fig & Olive captures the essence of the French Riviera and is built on a foundation of genuine ingredients, deep respect for flavor, and an ambiance that celebrates the love of life and culture synonymous to the French Riviera.
