Ah, brunch. Nothing’s better than a well-concocted Bloody Mary on a warm, Spring day in April, right? Jokes on all of us New Yorkers though, as this picture perfect day seems to be nothing but a fantasy with this cold front as of late. We’re not sure what’s up with this weather, but we’re definitely tired of it, and are in dire need of a day outdoors in the warmth. Until Mother Nature decides to be kind to NYC, we’ve taken an alternative route to getting what we want: indulging in brunch spots with enclosed green spaces. Today, we’ve picked three brunch spots with year-round gardens to share with you before you solidify your weekend plans. These airy oases will be sure to take your mind off of what’s happening with the weather…at least for a minimum of two hours.
