Confidently fire Cupid’s arrow and treat your date to a memorable evening of delicious foods, flowing champagne, and some decadent desserts.

Finding the perfect locale for the perfect Valentine’s Day date can be daunting, but we’re here to lend a hand (it’s okay to ask for help now and then). From brunch to dinner and beyond, take a look through the following Valentine’s Day dinner options for some inspiration in Westchester County. 

Alamo Drafthouse

2548 Central Park Ave, Yonkers
914.226.3082

Any other year, your local Alamo is a special way to celebrate the holiday, with drinks, food, and film — and maybe even a collectible Mondo print or pint glass. This year, sadly, the theater is closed, though NYC locations are offering private screening rooms starting at $150 plus tickets and food. For something a little nearer to home, however, you can snuggle up at home with a streaming purchase or rental from the brand’s curated movie collection.

Alvin & Friends

14 Memorial Highway, New Rochelle
914.654.6549

Turn up the romance this Valentine’s Day with a special three-course dinner ($60 pp) and live piano music. Dishes include curry corn crab chowder, Creole shrimp etouffee, broiled Chilean sea bass, rum punch-glazed pork belly, and chocolate lover’s chocolate cake. The menu is also available for takeout.

There is nothing more romantic than a beautiful meal matched with a beautiful view, both of which Apropos offers for a Valentine’s Day celebration. The four-course meal ($75 pp) includes delicacies like candied pears with whipped ricotta and hazelnuts or caramelized beets with goat cheese, followed by entrée choices of honey-lacquered duck breast with cauliflower agro-dolce, crispy local chicken with sweet potato and goat cheese, and roasted sea bass. Diners can enjoy the breathtaking views of the Hudson River while they savor the food on either the evening before or the evening of Valentine’s Day.

Augie’s Prime Cut

3436 Lexington Ave, Mohegan Lake
914.743.1358

Augie’s Prime Cut is featuring an a la carte menu (and extended dining hours) with special dishes that will make your heart soar (Feb. 12-14) for you and your valentine in either the main dining room or, if you prefer a more intimate dining experience, The Loft. The Valentine’s Day menu includes specials like heart-shaped ravioli, but guests can also choose from the regular menu with favorites like slow-roasted prime rib or baked clams.
