The Heath at The McKittrick Hotel

The Heath’s Valentine’s Day dinner, also the winner of OpenTable’s “Diner's Choice award” for most romantic restaurant, is offering a special night for a three-course meal with unlimited beer, wine and bubbly for $145 per person. At special request, the venue also offers private train cars that seat up to four guests.

Oleanders at the McCarren Hotel & Pool
