I'm looking to have a small birthday dinner on a weeknight this June and I'm keen to do it outdoors. I'm pretty set on a quiet garden, not a sidewalk or rooftop. Any ideas on where?
Trestle on Tenth in Chelsea seems to be the best bet I've found so far, but I'm hoping chowhounders can help me come up with other possibilities. I've ruled out a few: Home in the Village has charm but the food isn't as good as it needs to me, and Quartino near the Bowery is more of a bar than a restaurant, I think. The Grocery in Carroll Gardens doesn't allow garden reservations.
