Neighborhood Know-It-All: Vday Hot Spots

Feb 6, 2009 9:58 AM | 0 comments

Many adages and axioms about love are untrue or outdated, but one that seems to ring true has something to do with the best way to someone's heart being through their stomach. One surveyor said it best: "Food is love and what better way to celebrate?"

Many of our staff feel the love (about food) and chose various Brooklyn restaurants as the best way to spend Valentine's Day.
 By far the favorite was River Café in Brooklyn Heights as it's a "romantic spot under the Brooklyn Bridge." Other food faves include Blue Ribbon and Miriam, both in Park Slope. 

If you can't get a reservation at this late date, don't fret: our staff had a few top date spots where no jacket is required:
- Brooklyn Botanic Garden: "Despite the stillness and barrenness in the winter the quiet garden is still beautiful and is all the more poignant to share with someone special."
- Promenade: "Sit and look at the Manhattan skyline."
- BPL: "Check out a date movie." 

For those of us who are less inclined to celebrate the cloying holiday, check out a show in the BAM Sounds Like Brooklyn Music Fest. Or just stay home and listen to J. Geils Band's Love Stinks. Yeah yeah.
