Dining al fresco at The Pavilion

 

The Summer in New York is difficult for many, many reasons but one of the city’s most redeeming qualities is eating al fresco (outside). Living in Union Square, I pass a stone pavilion in the middle almost everyday as I head towards the subway for work. Come summertime, this stone pavilion is transformed into a restaurant, aptly named The Pavilion. The restaurant opened in 2014, apparently to some controversy. It is only open seasonally, the website says from April 15th until October 15th but I think this year it opened much later than that.
