NEW YORK (MainStreet) -- Spring has sprung and there's nothing New Yorkers like more during this season than dining outdoors and forgetting they are in the middle of a concrete jungle. TravelsinTaste has gathered the latest in outdoor dining to sample whether you're a tourist or a native New Yorker, so you can forget about the jungle for a while and savor the fresh air and fine cuisine.For rooftop dining a wonderful respite in the midst of Midtown is the rooftop at Aretsky's Patroon. With just the right sense of fun, frolic and, of course, lush foliage, the rooftop space provides the perfect escape from bustling Midtown. It's more casual than the restaurant and great for a drink or a light bite of shrimp cocktail or Angus prime beef sliders.
