Valentine’s Day is on a Tuesday this year, and that makes it less likely a couple would want to venture far for a dinner out. A weeknight usually means early to bed or home late from work.
For couples in Queens looking for a place nearby to have a good romantic meal, Resorts World New York City Casino has two upscale dining options ready to serve couples looking for a place to share the evening.
On the casino’s second floor, RW Prime steakhouse and Genting Palace Chinese restaurant are both prepping for Valentine’s Day.
At RW Prime, it’s more than just steaks. Your meal may start with a cheese plate featuring some prosciutto and salami and a side of fresh honey- honeycomb included- a tangy Dijon mustard, pecans and cornichons. A second course features mixed mushroom soup and a salad with heart of romaine lettuce drenched in tasty Caesar dressing.
For the main course, a surf and turf featuring a slab of filet mignon- cooked the way you want it- and half a lobster, featuring an assortment of sauces to choose from including the house BBQ, a South American chimicuri, red wine bordelais and classic bearnais.
Leave room for dessert since there’s an excellent selection including a New York cheesecake topped with fresh berries and a triple berry sauce, a chocolate molten cake, a crème brulee or an apple tart.
RW Prime also has a wine bar where the entire menu is also offered, if sitting at the bar is more your style. There is also a special prix fix menu Mondays through Thursdays.
If red meat is not your thing, across the way is Genting Palace. The casino’s authentic Chinese restaurant is a place to have some real Chinese cuisine, not that storefront take-out type. Have a hot glass of fresh green tea and feast on garlic lamb chops, Genting Palace’s signature fried rice, featuring scallops, shrimp, crab meat, pine nuts and scallions and a real Chinese dessert of ginger soup and brown sugar.
Both restaurants allow you to make reservations online at rwnewyork.com. RW Prime opens for dinner at 5 p.m. and the kitchen is open until 11:30 p.m. Genting Palace is opened for dim sum lunch at 10 a.m. and dinner at 5 p.m.
For those who want to play the slots on the most romantic day of the year, Resorts World NYC will be giving a free box of chocolates to the first 1,000 Genting Rewards members to come to the casino on Feb. 14. Just go up to the Genting Rewards counter and claim your candy.
