There’s no better way to celebrate Earth Day and cherish the planet that gives us life!
On Earth Day, April 22nd, 2023, Gallow Green, the rooftop garden bar and restaurant at The McKittrick Hotel in New York City, will be celebrating its seasonal opening. The reopening of this whimsical secret garden escape is an annual event that draws many visitors. The garden is designed with hanging vines, flowers, and greeneries that are specifically created by Jen Stone of Stonekellv Events & Florals.
Executive Chef, Pascal Le Seac’h, has crafted a seasonal menu of globally inspired cuisine and refreshing drinks. The menu includes new dishes such as oven-baked Artichoke & Crab Dip, Octopus Piperade, Ribs with potato salad, Sea Bream with Middle Eastern vegetables, and a vegan Buddha Bowl made with Bulgur, red quinoa, Kale, avocado, watermelon radish, sweet and sour shallots, and mint. Returning favorites include chilled Beau Soleil Oysters, Fattoush, Grilled Scottish Salmon on a bed of Bibb lettuce, and more. Dessert options include Orange Panna Cotta, seasonal Strawberry Shortcake, and a selection of Sorbets & Ice Cream.
Hand-crafted cocktails, inspired by the hotel and its residents, include the Sleep No More, Gallow Green, and Northern Lights. Wine by the glass or bottle, local beers, and seasonal ciders are also available. Gallow Green will also host special seasonal events, including Sunset Sundays featuring live music by various artists each week, weekend brunch service, and family-friendly Potions & Planting tea parties.
The grand opening celebration will feature passed canapés, tasting stations highlighting new seasonal menu items, and a choice of beer, wine, or bubbly. Toki Japanese Whiskey highballs and Hornitos Tequila cocktails will also be available. MK Groove Orchestra and Lisa McQuade will perform live during the event. Tickets start from $65 per person for a two-hour seating at 5:00 PM and $75 at 7:30 PM (plus tax and gratuity).
