Surprising a Loved One in Murray Hill
Now more than ever, people are appreciating the simple gestures in life. Show someone you love how much they mean to you by arranging a romantic evening in. Plenty of nearby places, including restaurants, florists, and cocktail bars, can help you throw together an intimate occasion in your Algin Management apartment in Murray Hill.
Nothing says “I love you” like a beautiful assortment of flowers, so get your surprise underway with an order of blooms. Gabriela Wakeham offers same-day delivery on upscale bouquets: think arrangements of orchids, tulips, and lisianthus—or red roses with long stems presented in nautilus vases. Sahola will deliver to your apartment at short notice too: their artfully concocted bouquets include themes on Monet, Orchid Obsession, and Moulin Rouge—and will leave your Murray Hill apartment looking splendid (and smelling fragrant) for days after.
Missing your favorite Midtown cocktail bars? Some will bring their drinks to you. While your partner is still enjoying their flowers, galvanize your wooing moves with drinks couriered directly from Patent Pending. Usually dishing up the liquid goods in their Radio Wave Building venue, right now they’re serving up the likes of an Illuminated Manhattan (an explosive mix featuring Campfire Whiskey, aged rum, scotch, Madeira, gunpowder tea, and mole) or an AC/DC (Blanche Armagnac, peach, fennel, and genever—among other things). You may notice the names all relate to electricity: Patent Pending is based in the building where Nikola Tesla performed his experiments on radio waves. One or two of these concoctions will certainly spark up your evening.
It’s no secret that New York City is great for eating out, but right now, many of its best restaurants are offering at-home eat-in. Imagine the look on your partner’s face when they answer the door to a dinner for two of short rib spring rolls, followed by filet mignon served with frizzled onions and grilled tomato from high-end steak restaurant La Brochette. If you’re after a spicier evening, order in from Baby Bo’s Cantina, a beloved Mexican eatery that’s been serving Murray Hill locals for 25 years. ‘Wow’ your better half’s taste buds with smoky black bean soup, grilled green chile shrimp fajitas, and tortillas loaded with chicken, sweet plantains, Monterey Jack, and mole poblano. Then relax in your Murray Hill residence with romantic music playing and your stomachs—and your hearts—full.
