Gilt restaurant unveils this 75-seat outdoor lounge, set in the scenic courtyard of the historic Villiard Mansion, which also happens to be a featured location on Gossip Girl. Fortunately, you don’t have to be a fashionista teenager to enjoy the space, where original cocktails like the Mariposa (mescal, fresh lime, candied violets) and classics, such as the Pimm’s cup, can be enjoyed alongside casual dishes from executive chef Justin Bogle, including suckling-pig tacos. Wine director Patrick Cappiello offers a list of 20 half bottles that will be available only outside, in addition to the restaurant’s wider selection.
