The back patio at this casual American spot is an oasis in the city, which is a good thing since it makes up 90% of the restaurant (the inside is just a few lonely white tables next to a brown velvet booth). Requisite space heaters, blankets, and a mix of big palms and ferns make this the backyard of your dreams—or a nightmare, for the neighbors above. Settle in around one of the small wooden tables, and enjoy the romantic vibe over a menu of new American dishes like a citrus and endive salad, a classic steakhouse NY strip steak, mac and cheese, and a plump double cheeseburger with thick, perfectly cooked french fries on the side. While the food is just passable, you’re really here to people-watch, and, hopefully, stare into the eyes of your hot date.
