Library Bar at the Nomad
Who said the library wasn't sexy? What could've easily felt like a Midtown Ivy-League gentlemen's club, manages a buzzy date-spot feel after sunset. The fashionable set lounge in the book-lined room, sipping cocktails and wine from one of the best lists in the city. Snuggled in the corner with a few dishes from the exceptional kitchen, your date won't mind passing on (as you walk by) the pricey dining room tasting menu. 1170 Broadway, 212-796-1500

Bourgeois Pig
This go-to date spot has been around awhile, but there's a reason it always tops romantic bar lists: The sexy, blood-red interior feels like a cross between Louis XIV and Mae West. The wine list is varied and full of good bottles, whether you're paid like an intern or an executive. To compliment the wines (and cocktails!) are a selection of chocolate, cheese, and savory fondues. On Valentine's Day, they will be offering seated reservations for a 4-course menu paired with drinks. Call for details. 111 E. 7th Street, 212-475-2246

Casa La Femme
Want to surprise your Valentine's date with an exotic dancer? Bring them to Casa La Femme in the West Village, the Egyptian oasis features belly dancers nightly. Reservations are required for V-Day dinner and the front room tables; for those afraid of commitment, the bar is free for you to come and go. The wine list changes regularly, but always features European whites, reds, ros├ęs and, of course, bubbles. 140 Charles Street, 212-505-0005

Buvette
If your date is more Etsy than EMM Group, romance them at this charming slice of French countryside on Grove Street. The kitchen is run by the superb Jody Williams who excels at packing loads of flavor into adorable packages; try the rabbit pot pie. Wines are French and Italian, ranging from Medoc to Montepulciano, and Beaune to Barbaresco. No reservations, so arrive early. 42 Grove Street, 212-255-3590
