Williamsburg’s Brooklyn Winery (213 N 8th St.) has a cozy wine bar with shareable plates that is one of North Brooklyn’s ideal spots for couples looking to celebrate love (and their love of wine). Selections from Brooklyn Winery’s à la carte wine bar menu will be available from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m. on Tuesday, February 14 for Valentine’s Day.

The perfect start to a romantic evening would be the wine bar’s Pink Moon Oysters served three ways. The menu also includes homemade tagliatelle with lamb bolognese and “aphrodisiac Aleppo chili oil,” according to Brooklyn Winery, plus wine and cheese Pairings, each served with a “third-wheel” aphrodisiac. Options include Moses Sleeper paired with Blanc de Blancs and macerated strawberries, Boucheron paired with Barrel Chardonnay and black mission fig compote, Ubriaco del Piave paired with Barbera and chili-infused cherries, and Shropshire paired with Zinfandel, Arbequina olive oil, and chocolate.


As Greenpointers recently reported, Brooklyn Winery will have a new home at 61 Guernsey Street, opening this month, with a full-service restaurant called Rosette, but the location on North 8th Street will be open until the new home is fully functional. 

Reservations for Valentine’s Day can be made on OpenTable or Brooklyn Winery’s website.


MyMoon (184 North 10th St.), a beautiful restaurant and event venue in North Williamsburg, doesn’t need much help in the romance department. MyMoon’s entrance leads into a gorgeous courtyard filled with greenery and ample outdoor seating. The large indoor dining area, lounge and bar, housed in a 19th century building behind it, is equally captivating. 

MyMoon has increased the romance factor for Valentine’s Day with an appearance from Margi Gianquinto singing timeless selections from the “Golden Age of Standards.”

There is no need to spend a fortune on a prix-fixe menu at MyMoon on Valentine’s Day, as the restaurant is offering an a la carte menu, featuring some of Chef Marco’s new specialities, recently introduced to the menu for 2023.

Reservations can be made on Resy.


Greenpoint’s Sereneco (113 Franklin St.) has charmed the neighborhood with its seasonally-inspired menu and greenery-clad design. For Valentine’s Day, the restaurant is offering a romantic evening of jazz alongside a special menu.

The Jinjoo Yoo Jazz Trio will be playing live music throughout the night on Valentine’s Day. Plus, Sereneco told Greenpointers that the trio will play at Sereneco every Tuesday evening moving forward.

Sereneco’s Valentine’s Day prix fixe menu is priced at $75 per person. Menu highlights include vegan butternut squash soup, lemon parmesan kale salad, veal meatballs, grilled prawns, braised short ribs, and lentil stew, with olive oil cake for dessert.

Reservations can be made on Sereneco’s website.

Sama Street

Greenpoint’s Sama Street (988 Manhattan Ave.), known for craft cocktails and small plates, is offering one of North Brooklyn’s more affordable prix-fixe menus for one night only on February 14. For $55 per person, the restaurant’s special Valentine’s Day includes three courses, dessert, and a cocktail.

Sama Street’s menu is designed for sharing, so guests can choose six dishes to make a tapas spread or eat the three courses in traditional style. Appetizer options include baby bok choy, fried calamari, and chicken and steak satays. Larger plates include beef koi or tartare, pork ribs, chicken bao, noodles with shrimp and sausage, chicken curry, steak salad, grilled octopus, and prawns. There are also vegetarian options like a mushroom salad and tofu. 

Cocktail choices include any Sama Street cocktail like the Major Tom with gin, shochu, lemongrass, ginger, chili, coconut cream, cherry tomato, and fish sauce or the Lucy Liu with chili oil washed tequila, lychee, coconut, vanilla, and lime, or a non-alcoholic beverage.

Tickets can be purchased on Edy’s Grocer’s website.

Brooklyn Brewery

For those of you looking to avoid the saccharine sweetness of the holiday, look no further than the ever-reliable Brooklyn Brewery (79 North 11th St.), another Williamsburg spot moving locations in the upcoming year. 

From 7 to 9 p.m., Brooklyn Brewery is hosting a fun anti-Valentine’s Day event called ‘Romance is Dead: Black Widows, Lethal Lovers and Couples Who Kill.” There will be true crime stories, trivia, beer and more, hosted by true crime expert Sarah Cailean.
