VIRGILS REAL BARBECUE
These last few days of summer are precious so take advantage and do all things summer: enjoy the outdoors, bqq, and cool off with something cool 'n' sweet. Check out all of these New York City restaurants offering up just what you need!
Go On a Picnic:
Folks who want to relax in Washington Square Park should order pizza picnic boxes from Pizza Roma on Bleecker Street in the West Village. These clever carryout containers, named after parks in Rome, are filled with the restaurant’s signature Roman-style pizza al taglio (square pizza by the cut), Paninis, fresh summer salads, and more.
June 30th is National Ice Cream Soda Day, and it certainly is timed perfectly with the hot weather we've been experiencing lately. So chill out at these NYC locations for some delicious, refreshing treats!
GO Burger on the Upper East Side makes a boozy take on this frosty, soda fountain staple: They blend three scoops of silky vanilla ice cream into a Cuba Libre ($12), a traditional highball that GO Burger makes with Bacardi Silver Rum, Boylan’s Cane Cola – made with pure cane sugar -- and lime.
Virgil's Real Barbecue makes a root beer float ($6.50) with Stewarts Root Beer and vanilla ice cream, along with beer-based floats such as the Vanilla Porter Float ($9) with Breckenridge Porter, Cointreau and vanilla Ice Cream, and the Blueberry Wheat Float ($9) with Shipyard Blueberry Wheat Beer and vanilla Ice Cream.
