Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Nearly Cause Valentine's Stampede in NYC

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West went out for Valentine's Day dinner and it was almost too much for paparazzi to handle ... because they almost came to blows over it.

Kimye hit up Carbone Tuesday night in NYC -- judging by the selfies Kim posed for with fans and Kanye's smile, seemed like a swell date night after nearly 3 years of marriage.

Same could not be said about some VERY pushy photogs trying to get shots of the happy couple.
