Last night, I had the pleasure of dining at Bryant Park Grill with friends and coworkers. For those of you who’ve never been to Bryant Park Grill, it’s a fabulous setting in Manhattan, NY for eating out in the summer. The restaurant is located in the heart of Bryant Park which comes with its own excitement. We headed over at about 5pm and the park was bustling with people. There was a group playing ping pong, there were people getting ready for a group yoga class on the lawn and there were people sitting about playing chess or conversing with each other; and then you had your regular people watchers.
Once we walked into the restaurant, we headed up to the rooftop lounge for cocktails and appetizers.
About 45 minutes later, we headed back down to the restaurant for dinner. One thing that I noticed at first glance, is that they changed the decor of the dining area. It was a lot more colorful than when I was there last spring. I was told that it was updated in August of 2014. The color was red and purple chairs with white table linen. The color scheme gave it a happy them, perfect for the summer.
Once we were seated, we ordered drinks and a mixture of appetizers which included oysters and calamari.
For dinner, I ordered the Bryant Park Sea Grill which consisted of lobster, scallops and shrimp over saffron tomato rice with lemon butter sauce. It was delicious.
For dessert, I had chocolate creme brulee with coconut shavings and dulce de leche ice cream.
What I wore.
