Cat Colle’s Top Dinner Spot For A Romantic Weekend In NYC Is Asiate’s

Dinner at Asiate inside the Mandarin Oriental is a must while in NYC, not only because of the food and the view; but, because of the service! When you go there be sure to request Daniel Villanueva as your waiter. Daniel is more than a waiter and he will tell you Asiate’s is more than a restaurant, “It’s our house!”

The conversations with Daniel Villanueva as he served us were unlike conversations with any other waiter and as you can see below, Daniel loves to take pictures of his guest. He was our personal photographer for the night!

A Ride Through Central Park In A Horse Carriage Makes The List For A Weekend In NYC

This Has Romance Written All Over It!

A horse drawn carriage always spices up the romance. You can customize your ride through Columbus Circle and Central park and the length of time you want to ride, just make sure to take a good look at the horse prior to riding because you don’t want to ride an exhausted horse; they are powerful creatures but they need their dedicated rest. The video below is us getting dropped off close to Times Square.
