Sweep them off their feet & into a feast of the seas!
The hunt is on for the ultimate romantic night for you & your sweetheart this February! And what better way to celebrate your love than in a wonderful feast of sustainable seafood?!
I've put together my top picks for you to celebrate your love of each other, (and the sea!) with a hint of less guilt... Enjoy!
GREENPOINT FISH & LOBSTER
My long-time favorite fish spot, Greenpoint Fish & Lobster, is full of ways to delight your fish-loving partner. While you can always take out their fresh domestic wild-caught fish from their markets, they are also hosting a grand V-day feast on Feb 14th itself, from 5-10PM.
With a wide-ranging delectable menu, with treats such as lobster gnocchi, crab & fish pot pie, and arctic char poke, all topped off with chocolate bread pudding & a lemon gelato cornbread ice cream sandwich, your date is sure to end the night with a smile!

GO SHUCK YOURSELF
Take your date to the most delectable classroom possible at Greenpoint Fish & Lobster's LIC fish market, and you're sure to learn if the aphrodisiac qualities of oysters are true. On February 16th, there will be a hands-on Oyster tasting & shucking night, where you'll not only learn all about oysters, but also how to (safely) open those shells towards deliciousness.
Good old Seamore's is offering a festive "All Red Everything" Whole Sea-bang, with a whole lotta bang! The rouge-colored meal will feature beet salad, roasted purple potatoes, red quinoa, country toast with preserved tuna, flat iron steak with hibiscus chimichurri, and a black sea bass Rossi with sun dried tomato pesto. The finale will be a Rose Velvet cake! Decadence.
New kid on the block, All Hands is quickly finding its delicious footing, with old favorite (RIP) Northern Spy's chef Pete Lipson at its helm. Their special Valentines evening meal is a Surf & Turf extravaganza, complete with power couple Filet Mignon & broiled lobster. Feast away!
For reservations, head to their site.
To celebrate Valentine's Day, Luke's is offering a special promotion for you to enjoy with your lobster, in person or at home via delivery, one more time Valentine's week. You will be able to get 2 Luke's Trios, 2 half tails, and 2 small clam chowders for only $55. The promotion will be all day from Feb 9 - Feb 14, both online and in-shack. Show your significant other or even your buddy or Galentine some lobster love!

Manhattan's finest sustainable seafood destination, Crave Fish Bar, is having a romantic 4-course menu at both their UWS & Midtown locations. The dishes (& fishes!) on offer, from Peekytoe crab rolls & grilled Octopus, to Lobster Fra Diavolo, are sure to make your sweetheart sweeter!
