For us once the weather heats up, dining al fresco almost becomes a daily ritual. Why stay in doors when the sun is shining, and there’s a warm breeze in the air? Evidently we are not the only people who feel this way about eating outside, as multiple celebrities we’ve spoken to also have an affinity for outdoor dining.
Thankfully in NYC, when it comes to outdoor seating the possibilities are endless. Emulate Kelly Rutherford and dine in the open air at Amaranth, or take a leaf out of Tori Spelling’s book and bask in the sunshine outside The Butcher’s Daughter.
