Spring weather is upon us, and that means no more bundling up to dine outdoors!
With all of this lovely sunshine, what better way to enjoy the weather than dining under floral canopies that will whisk you away to paradise? Here are some of the most gorgeous floral outdoor dining setups popping up across the city just in time for spring.
Most of these magical creations are by the fabulous Floratorium — be sure to check them out!
1. Lola Taverna, West Village
LOLA Taverna is a colorful escape from the city’s hustle & bustle tucked away in the West Village, serving delicious Greek cuisine and cockatils. You’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a whimsical garden as you dine and drink under their rich floral displays that decorate their outdoor seating area.
Where: 210 6th Ave, New York
The Italian restaurant launched their “Soho Cottages” to bring Italy right to Manhattan. Each cottage is decked out in floral arrangements, with bright yellow and white roses crown the cottage roofs making a beautiful ambiance alongside your more beautiful bowl of pasta. There’s even a 24K gold leaf pasta!
Where: 330 W Broadway, New York

4. Scarpetta, NoMad
Always known for their over-the-top decor, you won’t want to miss this spring’s floral designs coming to Scarpetta! Feast on Italian dishes and you enjoy the beautiful views.

5. Boucherie, West Village
Sit down for one of the best brunches in the city while you admire the lovely twisting vines of red roses that line the outdoor seating area at this French brasserie’s original location.

Fine dining Italian seafood restaurant Marea in Columbus Circle reopened for outdoor dining over the summer, and it wasn’t your typical tables-shoved-on-sidewalks situation. Instead, they commissioned NYC floral studio Floratorium and design firm Nusla to create a stunning floral canopy, and have been changing it throughout the seasons. Right now there is a bit more of a greenery set-up for the winter, but we expect more florals are about to bloom there soon (just see the summer and fall set-ups here)!
Where: 240 Central Park South
7. Pasta Louise, Park Slope
This neighborhood gathering spot offers simple but delicious Italian cuisine, especially (of course) pasta, served with made-from-scratch sauces and special additions like burrata, house made ricotta and crispy prosciutto. There’s also homemade ice cream with flavors that change daily! The floral design was inspired by the owner’s hometown of Oakland, CA.
Where: 803 8th Ave, Brooklyn

Enjoy French dishes and delicious (and Insta-worthy!) cocktails at this pet-friendly spot in Chelsea. It was named after none-other than the owner’s adorable pup!
