If you’re whiling away an afternoon on the impressive grounds of Staten Island’s Snug Harbor Cultural Center, take a lunch break on the porch of a brick Beaux Arts building with moss-green columns, or grab an umbrellaed table overlooking the greenhouse and herb garden. The Cuban roasted-pork sandwich comes on crunchy focaccia with melted mozzarella and garlic mayo, and the Botanica chicken salad is fresh and delicious. After a peach iced tea, head to the stunning Chinese Scholar’s Garden to meditate about what you’ll eat on your next visit.
