Springtime and Outdoor Seating. Livin' the Hi-Life!

Now that Spring has sprung and the ice salt seems to have vanished, grab a friend and enjoy the outdoors in NYC. So much to do and so much to eat. Start the day off with a jaunt through Central Park. This park is huge and there is so many fun hiking trails and areas to explore. Plus, there is a zoo and canoes to rent. After a busy day, you have to be hungry? I'm hungry just writing this blog. I found a great place, for drinks, food and wonderful outdoor seating. The menu, which features steaks, burgers and pasta in addition to sushi. Starters include potato skins, slathered in cheese and bacon bits and a warm goat cheese salad. Salads and pasta are listed under "Big Bowls"; sushi is half-price on Mondays and Tuesdays. Let me know what you think.
