Valentine’s Day is just around the corner — but if you haven’t made plans for you and your special someone just yet, don’t fret.
Grand Central Terminal — New York City’s iconic Beaux-Arts train station — will randomly select two people to “dine under the stars” in the main concourse this Valentine’s Day. The lucky couple will enjoy a three-course dinner from Agern (a Scandinavian restaurant on 42nd Street with a Michelin star) beneath the celestial ceiling, plus Li-Lac Chocolates and, of course, plenty of Champagne and cocktails. There will even be a professional photographer and live music, as well as a Diptyque gift set for you to take home. To top it all off, the twosome will enjoy the rest of the night in the presidential suite at the Grand Hyatt, located right next door — a room that would normally set you back at least $750.
And considering the dinner reservation is for 2:30 a.m. on Feb. 14, you’ll definitely want to take advantage of the room.
Yes, that’s right — the dinner is scheduled for after the terminal closes to the public, between 2 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. So, not only will you have a romantic meal in one of the most beautiful places in the city, you’ll have the space entirely to yourself. That is, if you can stay awake until then.
Snagging a table at the most exclusive spot in town won’t come easy. For a chance to win, you’ll have to follow @love.GCT on Instagram and like this post. Then, you’ll have to tag your date — or spouse, best friend, partner in crime — whoever it is you want to share this experience with. Just be sure to do so before tomorrow, Friday, Feb. 7 at 11:59 p.m. EST. If you’re randomly selected to win, you’ll receive a direct message through Instagram on Monday, Feb. 10.

Dining in a train station not your thing? We’ve got you covered with our guide to 29 of the top restaurants in New York City. Word to the wise, though: Make your reservations ASAP. If you can’t find anything through popular restaurant booking sites such as Resy or OpenTable, American Express Concierge is going to be your best bet. Select American Express cardholders have access to this special service that can help you arrange tours, get access to events and yes, even score hard-to-get restaurant reservations (looking at you, Carbone).
