Valentine's Day is less than two weeks away. It's a good time to let your loved one know you care. Flowers, gifts and dinner are always welcome treats, and / or some thoughtful gesture that shows that the lady [or man] you're with, still means a lot to you.

All events have been updated and are asterisked.

This report provides an update on who's open and taking reservations, but also highlights quite a number of local restaurant closures.

Like last year, this year it's especially important to make restaurant reservations early and be sure you're prepared to meet the state CoVid guidelines for indoor dining.

Given Valentine's Day is on a Monday, it may be fair game to make your VDay reservation on Valentine's Day or any day of the preceding weekend. Also, restaurants have outside dining capacity - so depending on the weather - NYC restaurants may have additional capacity [versus prepandemic] Valentine's Day weekend. But many restaurants have been casualties during these pandemic times, so for dinner in or near Mott Haven, Fordham, Port Morris, Concourse, Bedford Park, Norwood, University Heights, City Island, Riverdale, Melrose, Morris Park, Westchester Square & Parkchester in the Bronx; it's best to do your research early, and call a week or at least a few days ahead to make the reservations.

Valentine's Day History - Romantic Restaurants in the Bronx

The origins of Valentine's Day are not well documented. It's believed to have been named after Saint Valentine who was apparently a Catholic martyr who died over 1500 years ago. Today the holiday is not associated with religion so much as flowers, candies, cards and romantic dinners. And the holiday spokesperson is now Cupid, a Roman god of desire, and quite a mischief maker.
