As Seen in Veranda Magazine – Outdoor Lighting
There is something so enchanting about dining al fresco, surrounded by trees, flowers and the open sky. This is easy to do in Santa Barbara, even if that means wearing a down sweater and UGG boots for an evening supper.! Not long ago I met a friend for dinner near her apartment at Gramercy Park. We dined at Gramercy Tavern. It's a classic and has been around a long time but I had never been before. I loved the ambiance the moment we walked in. Huge plate glass windows, high ceilings and larger than life floral arrangements with tree branches and flowers greeted us. A sideboard, pictured here, was layered with masses of roses, daisies, mounds of squash, piles of miniature clay pots and a large glorious cheese board. Our table had tiny vases filled with rosemary arranged in a wooden tray and even the "toilette" was festooned with numerous floral arrangements. A city style al fresco experience in the heart of New York!
