Salinas Set To Open Their Garden Roof
Take a trip to the beaches of Ibiza without leaving New York City
Chelsea, New York City. March 19, 2015 – Salinas restaurant, located in the heart of NYC’s Chelsea neighborhood, is preparing to open their garden roof for this year’s spring/summer season.
Featured by Architectural Digest as one of the world’s best outdoor/indoor dining experiences, Salinas retractable roof offers patrons the rare opportunity to privately dine al fresco in Manhattan without being on city sidewalks. “We wanted to bring that feeling of outdoor living that is popular in Spain to the city,” says Mary Catherine Mikula, one of the owners.
Recognized as one of the city’s most romantic restaurants, Salinas has become renowned for their commitment to surrounding diners with fresh roses, flown in twice a week from Ecuador. When the garden room is finally exposed in the spring, diners can expect to be surrounded by fragrant “Moody Blues.”
With a fully functioning fireplace, Spanish limestone and mementoes from travel to the Balearic Islands, the dining experience at Salinas fires on all pistons.
About the roof: Salinas’ retractable roof is opened manually on warm nights by way of a long boating pole, that connects to a hook, used to slide the wheeled panels. The roof is sealed and insulated during the colder months.
About Salinas: Opened on June 8th of 2010, Salinas specializes in both traditional and inventive Spanish tapas as well as regional, main course dishes. Salinas has received several accolades, including a 2-star rating by the New York Times and “Best Suckling Pig” by New York Times Magazine.
About Chef: Chef Luis Bollo is a co-owner of Salinas and native of San Sebastian in the heart of Basque Country. He focuses on traditional, rustic cooking to introduce lesser-known dishes from the regions of the Spanish Mediterranean. His early training in numerous Michelin star rated restaurants throughout Spain, as well as extensive family recipes passed down through generations, form the inspiration for Salinas cuisine.
