It’s officially the dog days of the NYC summer, meaning stepping outside feels akin to walking into a sauna. Luckily for us, The Carlyle, one of the city’s most sought-after hotels, has introduced The Secret Garden by Dowling’s, a garden in full bloom tucked away inside of the Dowling’s dining room.
When it's too hot to be outside, you can enjoy the outdoors in the comfort of air conditioning at the Secret Garden, where esteemed floral designer Winston Flowers has installed an impressive floral display complete with lush greenery and plenty of pink roses.
The flower-covered oasis is matched with a carefully curated selection of the finest rosé and rosé cocktails that NYC has to offer, delivered directly to your table by a custom-designed floral-covered wine trolley. We highly recommend a bottle of Rock Angel or the Garden Smash, a delicious concoction of bourbon, lemon juice, simple syrup and Whispering Angel rosé.
What pairs great with rosé? Seasonal bites such as East Beach Blonde oysters with ginger-sake mignonette and burrata with roasted peppers, capers and olive oil served with country bread from acclaimed chef Sylvain Delpique. This dreamy respite from NYC’s scorching temperatures is open through the summer months, so make your reservations now!
