Valentine’s Day in New York City can go one of two ways; it can be a horrendous disaster of the most romantic evening ever. Be sure to guide you day in the way that’s going to turn out the most reward for both. The conditions are already perfect, all you have to do is pick the correct paths and everything will turn out great.

Valentine's Day is a high-risk, high-reward proposition in a restaurant: If things go wrong, love can falter, but a successful dinner creates oceans of goodwill. So diners should choose carefully from among the many special menus that are being offered in New York City establishments on Feb. 14; some of the most reliable options are below.

ARLINGTON CLUB Just opened to glowing reviews, this Upper East Side establishment focuses on steak. So for the three-course, $90 special menu, the Parmesan-crusted filet mignon and "beef duo" (wagyu steak and short ribs) are probably the best bets. You'll find your eyes drifting from your sweetie to the attractive two-level dining room, with a barrel-vaulted ceiling; the bar scene downstairs is already a bustling neighborhood staple.
