Don’t think just because it’s August that summer is winding down. There are plenty more fun activities for you to do with your girlfriends or a hot date! One of the best parts of summer is going out during the week and enjoying the open-toed, bare shoulder outfits. Here are a few ideas of restaurants to eat outdoors and enjoy the night weather, the delicious food, and the interesting people of Manhattan.
At Fishtail, David Burke’s newest restaurant, the celebrated chef showcases his flair for culinary innovation and selection of quality sustainable ingredients in a spectacular bi-level penthouse. For diners desiring a dose of sunshine or moonlight while sampling menu items including the “angry mussels” or cauliflower brulee, the cheerfully decorated space boasts a 25-seat outdoor dining patio with a retractable roof.
Patroon caters to those seeking a quintessential Manhattan dining experience. The restaurant draws a well-heeled crowd desiring refined classics such as the certified Angus prime beef burger and grilled white asparagus with pancetta, poached egg and toasted garlic bread crumbs. Warmer months beckon a visit to Patroon’s rooftop, where guests may sample light fare such as an artisanal cheese plate and a Maine lobster roll along with specialty cocktails and selections from a top-of-the-line cigar menu.
