New York City’s largest outdoor Summer Garden & Bar brings the bounty of summer to the heart of Manhattan. With over 7,200 square feet, this is a rare, outdoor oasis in the heart of midtown Manhattan. The menus feature a locally harvested bounty, supporting family farms in the Hudson Valley, Upstate New York, the North and South Forks of Long Island, into New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
Summer Garden & Bar is one part beer garden, one part garden party-all in an iconic NYC setting featuring an on-site garden with 7 herb varieties: blue scent lavender, chocolate mint, spearmint, stevia, silver thyme, sweet basil and rosemary.
All the dining menus highlight locally sourced ingredients and the beverage menu features cocktails flavored with fresh herbs and fruit and some of New York’s top craft beers.
· Grilled Market Fish & Steak, Beer-Battered Rock Shrimp
· Grilled Corn on the Cob, Chilled Gazpacho
· Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail and House-Made Guacamole with Hass Avocados
· Cucumber Gin & Tonic with Thai Basil, Blood Orange Agua Fresca
· New York Drafts like Six Point Sweet Action & Brooklyn Pilsner
Nautical umbrellas shelter the Summer Garden & Bar, where the Prometheus statue and a 1,400 square foot fountain create an iconic setting for a relaxing brunch, happy hour, dinner or power lunch.
With lounge seating, traditional tables, fountain-side al fresco dining and my new herb garden, it is the perfect setting for a range of summer occasions without leaving the city.
Open seven days a week, Summer Garden & Bar at Rock Center Café serves dinner nightly, with weekday lunch, weekend brunch and shared plate selections.
