The courtyard of the elegant New York Palace hotel welcomes a dressy set enjoying fine bar dining and cocktails in the open air. Gilt, the hotel's Michelin Stars–earning restaurant, supplies gussied-up suckling pig tacos, a cheeseburger with bacon and onion rings, thin-crusted pizza and truffle fries with garlic herb aioli. It's a way to be outside in the heart of Midtown while blissfully removed from traffic exhaust and all the sidewalk hustling.
