A Garden Restaurant?

I love eating outdoors and professionally, hospitality gardens are kinda my thing….but I am not sure what to think of this one….

I love that Casa la Femme in NYC has created a garden space for their restaurant and I find the design enticing….seems like a beautiful space to gather with friends for Egyptian food…. but here is the kicker…it is actually indoors, so the real grass floor never sees the light of day….hmmmm…  what do you think?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    it looks gorgeous, but all i can think about is the nice pair of heels i will inevitably be wearing getting stuck in the turf. hate that. otherwise very pretty.

    I think it’s cool!

    Personally, I don’t like it. While it is romantic, it’s just fake. I love eating outdoors – the noise levels are so much quieter than indoors. If you’re going to do a garden restaurant, do it outside! Nothing beats fresh air and beautiful skies! I love going to a restaurant that is surrounded with beautiful flowers and a menu that incorporates fresh produce and herbs from local farmers. Here in Minnesota, our summers are so short that I try to eat outside as much as possible.

    I would have preferred this if it was actually outdoors. But since it’s indoors, I’d take layers of oriental rugs on the floor and flowers on the tables instead!

    Rochelle I would agree with Shelia and Sprout… the lighting is interesting … Frankly I wonder how they keep the grass alive? I am not big on artificial environments I guess. Certainly it is unusual. Carol
