Just because you live or are visiting the concrete jungle of New York City doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy some zen relaxation outdoors, surrounded by nature. Indoor/Outdoor gardens have been popping up all over the city, and here are some of our favorites for spring:
The mission of CEO and Grupo Gitano Founder James Gardner is to share love & happiness, surprise & delight guests, minimize their impact while giving back to the community. The gorgeous, sustainable GITANO restaurant is just what you need for a perfect spring and summer.
Walk under the wooden pergola with the neon pink sign, and you enter the gorgeous 450-seat, high-vibe, outdoor venue. Spanning a 24,000 square foot city block, Gitano will transfer you to the lush, tropical jungle of Tulum. Sip creative cocktails like the Gitano Margarita and The Garden Rose under 30-foot coconut palms while lounging in a Bedouin tent, and nosh on light bites prepared over an open fire. Under the care of Head Bartender Jeremy Strawn (Mulberry Project, Death & Co.) fresh juices will be made daily to go with local seasonal ingredients and herbs, as well as a list of over 50+ Mezcals.
GITANO Garden of Love, 76 Varick Street, NY, NY
