The Scene: A third-floor German beer garden atop an otherwise Irish pub in Gramercy.

UD - Backyarding at Pig and Khao

Backyarding at Pig and Khao

A Viny Paradise at the Cleveland

The Scene: A capacious network of lattice and foliage in a discreet Nolita alley.

The Rocky Creek at Slide

The Scene: Stacked rock formations and a leaf-strewn creek on a wood-decked back patio in Greenwich Village.
The Provisions: Sliders. Lobster ones. Chicken-and-waffle ones. Bulgogi ones. And maple-bacon shakes. Play your cards right, and that shake will have alcohol.
