Valentine’s Day looks a little bit different this year but that doesn’t mean it can’t be filled with just as much love! Some of our favorite NYC restaurants got really creative this winter by making the outdoor dining experience more than just a table and a few chairs. In this Valentine's Day edition post, we’ve rounded up some of the best spots to dine with your girl gang or SO, along with a few extra safe activities around the city.


Ruby's Cafe

Ruby’s is the perfect spot to kick back and show your taste buds some L-O-V-E. The food is made fresh with Australian culinary influences.. can you say YUM. No need to make a reservation, Ruby’s operates on a first come first serve basis (so tell your fav babes to hurry up, this place is fills up quick!).
