The Great Indoors-Outdoors
The Urban Oasis:
Though not entirely exposed to the elements, this Chelsea eatery’s lush, 4,000-square-foot garden—featuring weathered brick, Japanese maple trees, and wisteria vines—can accommodate some 200 guests for a seated dinner or 325 for cocktails. In the event of rain, the open-air portion of the garden is cordoned off and the in-house event coordinator implements “floor plan B,” keeping all guests dry. The garden is mostly available on Sundays, with all-inclusive buyouts starting at $35,000. 118 Tenth Ave., nr. W. 18th St.; 212-352-3313; theparknyc.com.
