NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Need some help making dinner plans for Valentine's Day? Restaurant reservation service OpenTable has compiled a list of 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in America, and New York is well-represented on the list with eight eateries. Connecticut and New Jersey each have two restaurants on the list.
OpenTable generated the list from more than 5 million restaurant reviews between December 7, 2014, and December 6, 2015. It based its choices on restaurants that had a minimum "overall" score and which diners selected "romantic" as a special feature.
The list is alphabetical instead of ranked, so no restaurant is necessarily more romantic than any other on the list.
The New York restaurants:
Erminia Ristorante, Manhattan
La Cremaillere Restaurant, Bedford
Rainbow Room Dinner & Dancing, Manhattan
River Café, Brooklyn
Russell’s Steaks, Chops, and More, Williamsville
TS Steakhouse at Turning Stone, Verona
Yono’s Restaurant, Albany
The New Jersey restaurants:
Café Matisse, Rutherford
Peter Shields Inn, Cape May
The Connecticut restaurants:
Thomas Henkelmann-Homestead Inn, Greenwich
California had the most restaurants on the list with 15. To see the full list, click here.
