Whether it’s a first date or a celebration of many years together, a romantic meal is the essence of date night. This is especially true in Brooklyn, New York, where delicious food, great wine, and spectacular views abound! If you’re craving some eye-gazing, make reservations for two at one of the most romantic restaurants in Brooklyn. Here are a few of our favorites.
Top 5 Romantic Restaurants in Brooklyn
1. Convivium Osteria
Convivium Osteria is revered as one of the most romantic and authentic restaurants in New York. Just a five minute drive from our inn, Convivium’s three dining rooms will transport you to a farmhouse in the Italian countryside. On the menu you’ll find simple, clean dishes like grilled baby octopus salad, pan-roasted quail with figs, and pine nut crusted rack of lamb. For a true indulgence, order the 48 oz. ribeye for two presented whole on wooden tablets and sliced tableside.
Consistently named one of the best restaurants in New York City, Lucali on Henry Street is a neighborhood staple. The rustic, old-world feel is charming and romantic, making Lucali a frequent destination for anniversary dinners and marriage proposals. Admire the glowing wood-burning oven as you dine on braided loaves of Italian bread, cheesy calzones, and thin-crust pizza. Read our blog to learn more about the restaurant.
3. The Good Fork
With its intimate booths and curved wood ceiling, The Good Fork feels more like the inside of a boat than a restaurant. It exudes personality and warmth, just like the food that comes out of the kitchen! Menu favorites include homemade pork and chive dumplings, crispy fried Brussels sprouts, and Korean-style steak and eggs served with savory kimchee rice. The Good Fork also offers vegetarian options. Don’t forget to save room for dessert!
Craving Japanese? Look no further than Zenkichi in Williamsburg. This modern eatery was opened by a homesick Tokyo native and offers authentic cuisine that goes beyond sushi. Here, diners can savor specialty small plates and premium sake in a relaxed setting. Be sure to try the Omakase (chef’s tasting menu), which changes every five weeks to showcase the best fish and vegetables of the season.
5. The River Café
Treat your special someone to a stunning vista of Manhattan at The River Cafe. Nestled under the Brooklyn Bridge, this unique restaurant offers sweeping views of the New York skyline and the Statue of Liberty. Guests can enjoy the scenery while dining on classic New American fare. Whether you stop in for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner, The River Cafe provides an unforgettable dining experience.
