Valentine's Day Dinner Recommendations...

I'm looking to take my wife out to dinner on Tuesday for Valentine's Day.
I realize it's last minute but if anyone has recommendations that'd be very helpful.

As for food preference... ideally American-style fare, such as steaks and seafood, or Italian would probably be best. I live in Roslyn (Northern Nassau County) so close to the North Shore/Nassau is best, although Manhattan isn't out of the question as long as I can get reservations .

Thanks for the help!

In port washington there is a great little italian place. La Piccola liguria. Very good food, good service and nice atmosphere (i have not been there in almost 10 years, but i bet its still good)

Its the kind of place where the waiters memorize the specials (even though there are 30 different specials) and the owner/chef comes out and does a "meet and greet".

The owners son was a chef for Shaq in the 90's, fun little fact.

Prime Steak House in Huntington is very good if you decide to do steak.

There's a place right down the street from your old place called Baci. Have you ever been there? The food is awesome, very reasonably priced and very good size portions. The staff is also very courteous and attentive. If you have never been there it's definitely worth checking out. Major's steak house is good too there's a bunch of them on li. For mexican my favorite spot is also same area Cozy Mels. ON the border is good for mexican too it's in Hicksville by where ikea is broadway mall I think it's called. If I can think of any other good places I'll post them. Good luck bro.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I'll have to take a look at the ones mentioned above. Has anyone tried little Italy during valentines day? I bet it's super crowded and tough to get a table but there are tons of restaurants to choose from.

I have to say there is only one place I go for dinner on Valentines Day. That is my kitchen table. I will get some nice food and cook a nice meal for my 3 valentines! But I stopped the whole going out for dinner. IMO it is just a rip off to go out. You get a watered down menu and they just double the prices for what they have.

Why don't you just have a nice dinner at home, and then use the extra money to buy yourself a few dozen green apple scollys
