Around Town - Il Patio at Eataly, Dine at 620 Details, Gowanus Yacht Club and more...

Eataly in Flatiron has ditched its cabanas for Il Patio, a communal outdoor garden directly across from Madison Square Park.

On the Steakhouse front, both Smith & Wollensky and Sparks Steakhouse are both open for indoor dining in Midtown. Wollensky’s Grill is also drawing a nice crowd.

A short distance away Cornerstone Tavern was packing 'em in. Must be those individual beer taps they’re offering tableside. Cheers!

Still no signs of life at Sardis even as more Broadway shows come back on line, The Music Man among the latest to announce.  The Theater District won't really be back until Sardi's is back.

A massive rainbow now stretches across the outdoor plaza at Rockefeller Center in honor of Pride Month.

Separately, The Rock also has something cooking with its new Dine at 620 concept this July and August. The loft and garden will include Pebble Bar from team behind Grand Army, Celestine and The Smile, Korean-inspired food called Atogirl from the creators of Atoboy and Atomix. There’s also a prix fixe  tonkatsu rib menu courtesy of Olmsted.

Gowanus Yacht Club is sailing again on Brooklyn’s Smith Street where you can once again sit back, grab a beer and watch the game.

Showtime in the window?  It’ all part of The Seven Deadly Sins, a new outdoor production in the Meatpacking District where the audience watches on from the street and listens with headsets. We first told out about in our “This Week in Live Performance” feature.

Not too far away, we were intrigued watching Michael Puma, founder of The Gotham Burger Social Club, flipping his smash burgers at the future home of his summer pop-up at the Jane Hotel.  Stay tuned!


And concrete jungle. Cartier is using golden tiger paws for its social distancing at its Fifth Avenue location. But with the city reopening at a rapid clip they may soon be extinct.


Until next time, we’ll be seeing you Around Town
