The McKittrick Hotel (530 West 27th Street) has announced the return of its gorgeous rooftop garden hideaway, Gallow Green, which is now open for dinner and drinks on Wednesday through Sunday evenings.

The legendary hotel’s rooftop is currently overflowing with fragrant flowers, herbs, and hanging vines that create a whimsical, dream-like setting. The outdoor space has plenty of intimate nooks for romantic tête-à-têtes as well as protection from the elements to accommodate guests rain or shine.

Visitors can enjoy a seasonal selection of refreshing, hand-crafted cocktails such as the “Sleep No More” (pea flower-infused vodka, elderflower, and rosé cider) and the “Gallow Green” (bourbon, blue curaçao, citrus, and ginger). Frozé on tap, wine by the glass. local seasonal draft beers, and bottled ciders are also among the libations available to sip all summer long.

The dinner menu, expertly prepared by executive chef Pascal Le Seac’h, features a variety of raw bar selections, lightly fried calamari, a gorgeous crudité bowl, a lobster roll served with fresh Old Bay chips, the GG Burger, made with a special blend of DeBragga steak cuts, homemade pickles, and bacon marmalade with fries, a fattoush salad with diced vegetables, chickpeas, fresh mint, and crispy strips of naan lightly dressed in yogurt, and a Banh Mi sandwich made with maple-soy glazed pork belly and pickled vegetables on a baguette. The dessert menu features a silky orange panna cotta and sorbets and ice cream by Il Laboratorio del Gelato.
