Outdoor restaurant from the movie Hitch

Anyone know the name of the restaurant in Hitch (Will Smith) that they showed two people eating outside at, where he lights the napkin and it goes flying off into the sky? What restaurant is that? Looked like it was a straight show to Rockefeller when they panned out. I can't seem to find it anywhere. Was it Tavern on the Green maybe? I don't think so, but possible maybe...Thanks in advance! -mJ

    I didn't see the movie, but I did see them (and him) filming down by the Word Financial Center. It might be the southwestern restaurant with the great outdoor space there, Name escapes me.

        Defintely not any of those. I think I'm going to have to watch the movie again. I forget which couple it was that was there, but that might help as well.

        Thanks for the guesses! -mJ

        I'm searching for the same spot. Did you ever find out which restaurant it was?
