Medieval Art and a Restaurant That Makes You Feel Like You’re in a Forest Makes for a Fairytale-Worthy Weekend Adventure
Explore the castle-like grounds of The Cloisters, a branch of The Met in Fort Tyron Park in Inwood devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. Sit in the courtyards and enjoy the fountains and greenery, or look out from the scenic points at a spectacular view of the Hudson River. Wander the rooms of the structure and check out all of the fairytale-worthy sculptures, artwork, and tapestries; being surrounded by such a majestic structure is enough to make anyone feel like royalty.
Continue to enjoy the splendor of Fort Tyron Park by making your way south to New Leaf Restaurant. Tucked away amidst the foliage of the park, the stone building with its arched entrance and arched windows gently whisper romance. Dine on dishes like smoked salmon-butternut squash risotto or French chicken with au jus inside or out on their back patio, surrounded by trees. It's no wonder this beautiful spot also functions as a wedding venue.
