This is my favorite place in New York to spend a Sunday afternoon. No, I’m not talking about Central Park. But rather, The Park, a restaurant in Chelsea which took its name from its past life as a parking garage. The food is great, but the best part is their large inside-outside garden, with large trees finished with a grass roof top. Even in the chilly weather, you can dine outside. Every time I need to relax, or if I have friends in town I need to impress, I go there. In fact, I just impressed one this afternoon!
