I went to Harding's with my friend Sarah. While I've been there before for a previous unrelated event (by the bar area), it was nice to explore a new part of the restaurant that I didn't get to see before. It was bigger than I realized, and we actually ended up choosing other options from the menu instead of the Mad Men Week deal.
Another day, I went to the majestic Tavern on the Green with Andres. They did close for awhile, but reopened within the last year. We were late for our reservation so we weren't seated in the main dining area under the gorgeous glass walls, with the view of the park, but seated by the lounge/bar was a lot cooler (not under the heat of the sun). It also felt more private and the best part? We were seated two seats away from Chef Eric Ripert!
