New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden x Blue

PLAN DATE: THURS / AUG. 15

PLAN DETAILS:

Treat yourself to a staycation and take the Staten Island ferry over to the New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden located in the Snug Harbor Cultural Center in Staten Island. Get your zen on and explore this outdoor exhibit inspired by Chinese gardens and architecture. Embrace your surroundings and check out a koi-filled pond, a bamboo path, waterfalls and beautiful pavilions.

From the garden, take a 5 minute walk over for dinner at Blue, a restaurant nestled along the water that serves Mediterranean cuisine mixed with an asian flare. Start with a few appetizers like the wonton goat cheese, Thai calamari, or Portuguese octopus, and make sure to save room for entrees such as the seafood pot, chicken malaga, and tuna florentina. The setting itself is very scenic and the aesthetics will have you feeling like you’re dining in a southern European country.
