For anyone who is in New York and looking for a great outdoor dining experience, Santina is the spot! They have a simple menu with favorite for every palate. With great salad options, seafood, and pasta dishes. And, they creates a true oasis under the Highline with retro beach umbrellas and waiters dressed in cute outfits. Everyhting is presented in the same retro/beachy/cute manor. The restaurant is also located in NYC's hip Meatpacking District directly next to the Whitney Museum.
My personal favorite is the Rigatoni Norma paired with the freshly squeezed Green juice. It's ideal for any late afternoon in the summertime, and found on their Breakfast & Lunch menu.
