There’s something romantic about botanical gardens, and this restaurant—on the grounds New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx—holds the same lovely appeal. The eatery is located in the garden’s Ross Conifer Arboretum, with an interior crafted from oak trees felled there by Hurricane Sandy. Spacious, airy and tastefully decorated, it offers lunch and dinner menus that feature farm-to-table New American plates. The surprisingly expansive selection features plenty of greens amidst the meat, poultry and seafood, all served in simple yet elegant dishes. A selection of classic cocktails is also available. Though open to the public, Hudson Garden Grill shuts at the same time as the gardens, typically at 6pm.
