A Guide to Valentine’s Day Menus on the Avenue
Valentine’s Day takes some finesse to survive. It’s a big date night, but hearts can turn to daggers unless the venue is chosen wisely. If you’re stuck about where to go in Park Slope, we have some suggestions along the Avenue that will ensure you don’t lose that loving feeling.
Stone Park Café will be serving from 5:30 – 10pm, with reservations accepted, (718) 369-0082. A full $70 three-course Valentine’s Day Prix Fixe menu can be downloaded here (.pdf).

In addition to their regular menu of eclectic wines, Terroir will be serving Valentine's Day themed flights to suit your mood, whether you're a lover (the Valentine) - or a fighter (Love Stinks!). Stop in to see what they come up with, as it's sure to please your heart either way.
Of course not everyone has a special someone to share Valentine’s Eve with. Yet. If that’s your situation, Pork Slope may have the solution. Check out their Valentine’s Day “Meet” Market from 9pm – 2am. Ladies get the first drink on the house. First come, first served. (Let the jokes prevail.) (718) 768-PORK (7675).
