With all the snow this year, Valentine’s Day kind of just crept up on us. Sure it’s a little cheesy, but we heart this holiday because it’s dedicated to the ones you love. Whether that means close friends, family members or your special sweetie, we hope you enjoy V-Day the LIC way.
We heart the rich V-day menu planned at Alobar, with items such as loaded potato gnocchi, butter poached main lobster ravioli, pan seared skate wing, and tons of decadent dessert. It’s nice to see that you can order these menu items a la carte, instead of a prix-fixe, including the yummy bacon popcorn. Reservations are highly recommended. 46-42 Vernon Blvd, LIC. 718.752.6000
To make your V-day extra special at Alobar, there’s convenient flower service offered by Floresta. Score extra brownie points with your special someone with a gorgeous flower arrangement waiting at your dinner table. Order your flowers while making your Alobar dinner reservations an avoid having to go to the crowded flower shop during V-day.
