Pull yourself away from that computer and take an extended vision break at this new garden-inspired bar. There’s an alfresco area amid lush greenery for outdoorsy types, while the rest of us who need air-conditioning can still enjoy the kooky interiors stuffed with vintage trinkets. Naturally, menu offerings lean towards fresh, fruity and green. Wash down light bites (we like the Mexican catfish salad ($14)) with wines (from $60), spirits (from $12/glass, $180/bottle) or cocktails like the Starry Starry Night ($19)—rum, triple sec and sweet basil.
When the weather is good, eating outside can be a truly enjoyable dining experience. These joints with charming open air areas are just the place to dine on breezy evenings.
