The NYC Restaurant Creating Custom Poems For Valentine's Day Diners

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and that means that couples everywhere are on the hunt for the most romantic date options they can find. New York City is one location that has no shortage of romantic dinner options, but one restaurant is hoping a roaming poet can help give it an edge over the competition.

Romance abounds in New York City. In fact, From Mars reports that the Big Apple is the fourth most popular city in the world for proposals — and the number one in the United States. And there are a ton of options for different Valentine's Day celebrations there. The super chill can just go for a slice of New York pizza or make something special at home. The more adventurous could go out for a blindfolded dinner at Abigail's Kitchen.

Those looking for something more classic without falling short as a grand romantic gesture can try out The Broadway Lounge at the New York Marriott Marquis. This classic New York restaurant looks out over the bright lights of Times Square and is offering a special service to help spice up its Valentine's Day dinners.

Custom poems with your dining experience

The Broadway Lounge at the New York Marriott Marquis is offering the services of a roaming poet for Valentine's Day diners to enjoy. According to Opentable, diners can make reservations for a $75-per-person, three-course dinner that will feature a poet who comes by your table to offer a custom romantic poem. The dinner also includes live music and, of course, views of Times Square from eight stories above the iconic location.

The bespoke poem makes this an intriguing offer for anyone looking to spice things up on the most romantic day of the year. Medium claims that the world of custom poetry has been growing as a profitable side hustle for poets in the digital age. Most offers on sites like Etsy might cost as little as $50, but others cost well over twice as much. For example, a custom poem from Notes On the Way costs $95.

So, if you're looking for something unique in NYC this Valentine's Day, this might be just the event for you and your loved one.
