Caffe’ dei Fiori (NYC, US)

1

Phil and I celebrated Valentine’s Day this year with a dinner at Caffe’ dei Fiori on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The atmosphere was romantic with a rose & lit candle at every table; and I also appreciated the cute touch that the restaurant put in sprinkling adorable Valentine themed confetti on the table! The food was great, especially the duck breast, and our waiter was attentive but not overly so. My only complaint was the distance (or almost lack of) between the tables, especially on Valentine’s Day when most couples are hoping for some space and intimacy!
