Choose Your Own Romantic Adventure at the Tin Building

Maybe you don’t know your valentine very well yet. Or maybe you do, but they don’t know themselves. In any case, we have you covered. Reserve a table at T. Brasserie, Fulton Fish Co., House of the Red Pearl, Shikku or abcV at the Tin Building by Jean-Georges for maximum flavor and multiple options in case they change their mind. (96 South St.)

Chef John Fraser’s modernized French chophouse features a special Valentine’s Day menu for $105 per guest and an optional $94 wine pairing.
