One if by Land, Two if by Sea
One of the most romantic restos in all of NYC, this spot's candle-lit, cozy setting often has a live pianist to really help set the mood. You can't go wrong with their menu either, with entree options like Aged Eberly Guinea Hen, Beef Wellington, or Poached Dayboat Cod.
This West Village restaurant located inside a land-marked carriage house built in 1767 stands as one of the city’s top spots for romance. Alongside candlelit tables, a private garden, and brick fireplaces, the dinner-only eatery has seen no shortage of engagements and lovey-dovey moments within its walls since opening in 1973. When it comes to the menu, the eatery’s name of One if By Land, Two if By Sea might suggest a seafood-centric menu, but don’t be fooled—the moniker comes from an old poem about Paul Revere, and there’s plenty of variety within their New American fare with dishes like Italian Milk Burrata, Beef Wellington, Fusilli Calabrese Pasta, and Lamb Shank.
