Valentine’s Day in Brooklyn can be tough. Yeah, we all hear about how hard it is to enjoy the holiday alone, but the pressure of the heart-shaped holiday can be just as hard on couples! You have to plan out what you’re getting your significant other (is she more of a chile-infused chocolate or pristine, minimalist orchid kind of girl?)? Whether you want to dress up in pinks and reds or if that’s too corny? And, most importantly, where are you going to spend your Valentine’s Night?
We can at least answer that third question for you. Prospect Heights’ The Vanderbilt has been providing the neighborhood with great Valentine’s Days since opening its doors in 2009. And for this year’s romantic evening Chef Saul Bolton has drawn up one of The Vanderbilt’s famous beer pairings. Let’s face it, most Brooklynites would take the perfect craft beer over a French vintage to complement the organic and local fare on the tasting menu. You can also snag one of their classic or bespoke cocktails for the evening.
But maybe going out on the February 14 is too much pressure for you and your significant other. Maybe it’s only date three? Well, the Vanderbilt will still let you in on a Valentine’s Day deal on the fifteenth, as their tasting menu will still be available!
And even if romancing isn’t your goal this winter, make sure to come by for The Vanderbilt’s Super Bowl XLVIII celebration, where you can forget about the fact that your artist’s loft has no television and enjoy the biggest game of the year in the restaurant, all the while munching on The Vanderbilt’s famous Brooklyn Bangers. The sausages are sold at Brooklyn’s own sports megadome, Barclay’s Center, so they’ll definitely get you in the spirit to root on your favorite team. And if you’re lucky enough to have a big screen at home, you can pick up a Super Bowl package and cozy up on your couch!
