WHAT MAKES LOVE TRUE
Let’s say you and your love want to spend a quiet night at home this Valentine’s Day—but don’t want to spend the evening in your pajamas. (It is still Valentine’s Day, after all.) Not to worry, there are options! Start with a pre-dinner cocktail. Bars around the country, including L.A.’s Paradise Bar, will teach you the difference between a sidecar and a Sazerac with at-home cocktail lessons.
To truly pamper your beloved, hire a culinary expert to cook dinner for the two of you through Kitchensurfing.com. Simply find your city, pick the meal you desire and voilà! Your own private chef will cater to your culinary whims. You won’t even have to worry about cleaning up, which leaves you more time to woo (and perhaps surprise him or her with that little Blue Box you’ve been hiding).
Surprise that certain someone with a Valentine’s Day they’ll never forget. It all starts at Mandarin Oriental New York’s spa. Book the luxurious Couple’s Escape, a four-hour session including your choice of treatments in your own private suite—how’s that for relaxation? Pampering treatments, like a soak with essential oils, will have you feeling blissed-out (and in a romantic mood) in no time.
After indulging your body, exercise your mind with a private after-hours tour for two at the Museum of Modern Art. Explore its galleries with a knowledgeable guide, who can take you through special exhibitions. Then steal a kiss by the tranquil reflecting pool in the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden.
End the day of opulence at Daniel, and put yourself in chef Daniel Boulud’s hands with the over-the-top seven-course tasting menu. What ends up on your plate is subject to the chef’s whims. You may be treated to rich dishes like Wagyu beef or oysters. If you want to pop the question in the elegant dining room, get in touch with the restaurant beforehand. They’ll help you create an evening to remember.
