Now that its getting nice out I'm craving places where you can eat and drink outdoors. I would love to explore some different places.
I work in midtown and have mainly explored this area. I love the atmosphere at Cafe St. Barts but have never been particularly impressed by their food, although the pizzas are pretty good. I am a fan of Morrell's but they are sometimes strict about the $20 per person food requirement and this can be a problem when you just want to get drinks and share appetizers. The rink bar at Rock Center is fun for drinks but the food is bad and it gets so touristy. Bryant park is way too crowded and sceney for me.
I would love to find more places that are lively but not crazy crowded and have great food.
