The heavens are right on this lovely bella notte because Locanda Verde has started seating folks in the fantastic courtyard we’ve been waiting for. When we called to ask for a table tonight, they said they had a 9:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., and that they’d indicate preference for the courtyard, open nightly. As you can see from this shot off of the Greenwich Hotel’s website, this is a genuine refuge. (You can find another photo here.) The abutting lobby lounge, designed by Sean MacPherson and Eric Goode (so, same aesthetic as the Bowery Hotel’s lounge) is, officially, still open only to hotel guests and their friends, so wear a fanny pack when you wander in.
