It is said that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, and the way to a woman's heart is with candlelight and flowers, making One if by Land, Two if by Sea the obvious choice for lovers in search of the perfect setting to celebrate their love. Renowned as one of the romantic places in New York for anniversaries, proposals, or just to kiss, One if by Land, Two if by Sea offers its diners a place to satisfy their appetites and melt their hearts.

Opening in 1972, One if by Land, Two if by Sea offers French-influenced American cuisine with a selection of delectable delights that make for the perfect romantic evening. Accented with an extensive wine list, highlighting vintage and non-vintage champagnes, ports and wines from America, France and Italy, guests may begin their dining experience with Osetra or Beluga caviar.

The specialty of the house is Chef Gary Volkov's tasting menu, a six course culinary delight which affords the guest the opportunity to sample several of the chef's creations including Crispy Duck Breast & Leg Confit, Orange Jalapeno Glazed Rack of Pork, Pan Roasted Maine Lobster and of course, our Beef Wellington.

Located on Barrow Street, One if by Land, Two if by Sea is an elegantly restored 18th century landmark Greenwich Village carriage house and stable once owned by Aaron Burr, vice president of the United States (1801-1804). Rumored to still receive occasional visits of Burr's ghost, upon entering its inviting elegance, one can easily understand why spirits of the other worlds would also be charmed into this locale. Tables adorned with fresh roses and long tapered white candles are set in an early American décor. Adding to the amorous atmosphere is a live pianist playing romantic melodies and the crackle of the four fireplaces.

One if by Land, Two if by Sea opened in 1972 after a huge restoration of the carriage house which seemed more like an excavation. Discovered under layers of plaster and wood were many small treasures of the past, such as old coins, hand-made horseshoes and antique bottles. The original hitching post dating from the 18th century is still in tact in the bar area of the restaurant.

With its captivating surroundings and impeccable attention to detail, One if by Land, Two if by Sea is the ultimate aphrodisiac for romantic Epicureans.

    Lisa Gardner and One If By Land, Two If By Sea, made our wedding reception one that guest will surely talk about for years to come. Lisa met with us multiple times to discuss and plan everything for the day-of. The restaurant provided beautiful white roses, menus, music, and place cards, in addition to the amazing food! We had a brunch reception- we came for a tasting of all brunch items, and chose four that we really loved, to be served day-of. Our guests enjoyed the food and the jazz music that accompanied. On the day of our wedding, Lisa kept everything running smoothly and I didn't have to worry about a thing! The historic restaurant made for great pictures and topic of talk among our guests. The bartender and waitstaff were all so professional and very friendly. I would absolutely recommend One If By Land, Two If By Sea for any events, and of course just for dining as well!

    We had our wedding ceremony and reception at One if by Land Two if by Sea. The restaurant is a GORGEOUS, historical place with chandeliers and brick walls. Rosanne, the general manager, was very helpful in planning the details of our wedding. Not only that, but the restaurant was so generous in letting us use all the space, the flowers at the table, and the musicians that play for the restaurant. Rosanne kindly printed us beautiful menus and table numbers and even offered to print place cards for all my guests! We loved having our wedding there!

    My husband and I recently had our wedding ceremony and reception brunch for 100 guests at One if by Land. We cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. Rosanne Martino, general manager, is an absolute superwoman and helped make the day run as smoothly as possible. It goes without saying that the food was to die for and our guests are still complementing it. We also asked the restaurant to make our cake for us and it was divine (chocolate cake with raspberry mousse--yum!). The jazz musicians were lovely, the staff was exceptionally helpful, and the ambiance cannot be found anywhere else. We are so happy that we chose to have our wedding here and we would highly recommend it for those who want a romantic, intimate wedding.
