Where to Get a Romantic Dinner Right Near Home


Like many holidays we’ve had over the past year, Valentine’s Day is going to look a little different this year. A fancy dinner out is usually most couples’ go-to idea for a romantic Valentine’s outing but, with capacity limits, temporary closures and more, an exciting dinner date may seem out of reach for 2021. However, there are many eateries right near your Crane Chinatown apartment that are offering their award-winning cuisine for takeout—from sushi to steak and everything in between, you can still recreate a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner right from the comfort of your own home.

One of the most romantic spots around is Barbuzzo. Located six blocks from your Crane Chinatown apartment, the upscale Mediterranean eatery offers limited indoor seating but, if you feel safer recreating the romance right from your own home, Barbuzzo also has convenient dinner takeout. And as a plus, they’re open until midnight—so you can plan your date night for any time of night!

Barbuzzo offers plenty of options for a sumptuous, multicourse meal. Starters include creative concoctions like fire roasted pear toast, focaccia with burrata and eggplant and butternut squash arancini. That inventiveness continues on the entrée list, with a range of wood oven pizza featuring toppings like roasted Calabrian chili and truffled egg. Or dive into Mediterranean favorites like grilled octopus, mixed paella or hearty meat dishes including braised short rib and hanger steak. While you can certainly crack open your favorite bottle of wine if you’re dining at home at your Crane Chinatown apartment, Barbuzzo also offers its spirits to go, with craft cocktails like the Old Fashioned or Blood Orange Mint Punch, hot spiked beverages and a vast selection of wines and beers.

Romance can seem hard to come by in a pandemic but, with the standout culinary options right near your Crane Chinatown apartment, you can still enjoy a sweet dinner with your special someone, all while resting assured you’re both staying safe.
