Talula’s Garden in Washington Square West
Possibly the prettiest outdoor dining in the whole region is found next to Aimee Olexy’s urban-country dining room, where the centuries-old trees swaying in the park across the street are a great backdrop to the blossoming flowers that line the walls of the patio.
Must-Order: Cheese plate ($18-$24), hand-torn pasta with whipped ricotta, squash blossoms and truffle ($16 or $32)
Insider Tip: If outdoor tables are full, look for a seat at the granite outdoor bar near the back of the garden.
