On June 22nd, Phase 2 began and every restaurant in my Gramercy Park Area had tables in the street.
It was quite a site to behold!
So for my first Phase 2 -Outdoor dining experience I met a friend up at 5 Mile Stone, at 1640 2nd Avenue at 85th St.
The restaurant has an All-American type of menu but because of the Pandemic they had very limited choices.
So I decided to order a Cobb Salad and added some chicken.
It was a humid day and I wanted to keep it simple-
I think the most important realization of this dining experience was that it wasn’t the food that excited me but rather the sharing of a meal with a friend. I just realized how much I had miss social connection during this Lock Down and how thrilled I am that New York City is moving forward.
So very grateful.
