No need to leave the neighborhood this Valentine’s Day!
On this weekend of romance, Bay Ridge has some lovely events for all you lovely couples out there.
When Saturday night rolls around, fall in love with the wedding band Head Over Heels at Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets). The eight-piece matrimonial ensemble goes on at 10 pm.
For Valentine’s Day on Sunday, we are sure you need no help from us to find a classy eatery for a traditional romantic dinner. But it is never too early to show someone you love them, so here are some savory options for you and your sweetheart earlier in the day.
An unlimited supply of mimosas and a three-course menu that includes buttermilk pancakes and eggs Benedict makes the brunch at the Greenhouse Café from 11 am to 3 pm the most decadent of local Valentine’s Day fetes.
But there is another packed brunch worth checking out — at the Pearl Room (8201 Third Ave. between 82nd and 93rd streets), starting at noon. For $25 a head you get French toast, sliced steak, home fries, and more.
After brunch you can catch the Brooklyn And Beyond Chamber Ensemble playing a selection of Johann Sebastian Bach at the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd (7420 Fourth Ave. between 74th street and Bay Ridge Parkway). The ensemble, which goes on at 3 pm, will be classy-ical Valentine’s Day treat.
Love can be cheesy, folks, and that is not always such a bad thing. Starting at 5:30 pm, the Owl’s Head (479 74th St. between Fourth and Fifth avenues) is hosting a four-course cheese meal that will have any fromage-lover loving you. Choose from two fancy grilled cheese sandwiches, gorganzola-stuffed and bacon-wrapped dates, and more cheesy stuff than we can describe. The meal will run you $120 for two people, but it includes a bottle of Mestres Cava, a super-fancy bubbly.
