If you have a special someone in your life who you want to celebrate this fun holiday with, there are several places you can do so on Long Island. Here are some ideas for how you can treat your special someone this Valentine’s Day.
Eat at Il Toscana Ristorante
Make it a special dinner at Il Toscana Ristorante. This Valentine’s Day, the chef will cook up a special dinner designed for those who want to make it a romantic evening. Choose from a special selection of salads, antipasti, pasta, and entrees, and pair it all with some of your favorite wines. You can enjoy dishes such as short rib tortellini, Dijon-crusted rack of lamb, or pan-seared Scottish salmon. Choose from an extensive wine list that includes reds, whites, and even champagnes if you want to make the night extra special. Il Toscano sits on 235th Street in Douglastown, New York and has a wonderful atmosphere. Make sure to book a reservation ahead of time to make sure you can get a table on this big night.
Spuntino Wine Bar and Italian Tapas
Head to Garden City on Long Island for tapas and wine to make it a special evening. This place has a wine list with over 150 choices that you can pair with your small plates. You can each get a couple of plates to share and try some new things such as the calamari, wild mushroom bruschetta, or even a Margherita pizza with fresh mozzarella and San Marzano tomato sauce.
Paint and Sip
Bring your special someone to Martha Clara Vineyards in Riverhead for the Valentine’s Day Wine Glass Paint and Sips. Hosted by Wine of a Kind’s Maggie Carine, you can both paint your own glass and enjoy some wine while you create. Tickets for the event include two wine glasses, the supplies for painting and decorating the glasses, instructions, and a glass of wine. The session starts at 12:30 p.m. right at the Martha Clara Vineyards on Sound Avenue. The vineyard hosts several of these paint and sip sessions, so if you can’t make it on Valentine’s Day, you can still book a special day for the two of you to celebrate.
