Daytime Patio for drinks near Grand Central

dgrayca Jun 18, 2007 07:36 AM

Hello all,

I'm from Toronto and will be in NYC for five days starting this Saturday.

I'm looking for a nice patio for drinks which is open mid-early afternoon on Monday. I am staying at 44th St and 5th Ave. Would prefer something walking distance, or easy to get to by Subway.

    Bryant Park Grill - it's almost next door to where you are staying (the park is bordered by 40th and 42nd, in between 5th and 6th Aves). It's a nice setting for drinks. I'm not sure if you want food as well but the food there is just okay - nothing exciting but it's fine.

        Rio Grand on 38th and 3rd. Great margaritas.

            Bryant Park Grill is nice. I would add Cafe St. Barts on 50th and Park Ave. Great patio.
