After a long winter the sun is finally shining on New York City. Al Fresco dining is the hippest new dining trend, and it's hard to discourage it in this picturesque spring weather. I can't think of a better way to enjoy some the best food in the world than to do it in the sunshine. Check out our favorite spots to go Al Fresco in Gotham.
One of the most romantic places to take your date in all of Manahatta. We rec the duck.
