You can dine in “space bubbles” at this Upper West Side restaurant
An Upper West Side restaurant is bringing out the igloos early this year. Since outdoor dining is largely dependent on the weather, Café du Soleil is doing everything it can to stay open, even installing plastic domes to keep diners separate, warm and covered. The 18 structures, which stand 7 feet tall and have seating for 2-6 people, are named “space bubbles” as a whimsical play on the popular neighborhood restaurant’s French theme (“soleil” means “sun”) and the shape of the domes. “You can pop in and pop out,” managing partner Maxime Rousselot says. “It’s like a camping tent that looks like a cap on the moon.” We think it’s out of this world.
Editors’ essentials

When we covered the recent shuttering of Good Stuff Diner, a favorite in Chelsea, it was a reminder to support all the modern diners that have opened in the past year. One of my favorites is Golden Diner because of all of its comforting dishes. Try the mushroom reuben quesadilla—it always hits the spot.
The Fat Radish permanently closed its popular Lower East Side location before anyone had a chance to say "goodbye." But through October, the team is popping up at its sister restaurant The Orchard Townhouse in Chelsea. There's a back garden perfect for enjoying one of its refreshing Cosmo Frappes.
I've never spent more time inside my shoebox-sized apartment than this year. Now that the Chelsea Flea Market has reopened, however, I plan to rummage through the quirky collection of furniture, art and vintage clothes to find a piece or two to make my pad feel a bit more cozy this fall and winter.
Plan a foodie fall getaway
Sure, fall can be a magical time in New York City. But with forests transformed by vibrant autumn hues and amazing produce you can pick up straight from hay-strewn farms, it’s an even more magical season just outside of it. So if you’re looking to head out of town for an autumnal adventure soon, consider taking your taste buds along for the ride by heading to these nearby food and drink hot spots. In fact, they’re worth a road trip on their own.
The Maker
The Maker is a micro hotel with 11 rooms, but its restaurant has big ambitions. Executive chef Michael Poiarkoff (Vinegar Hill House) cures meats, churns butter and forages greens. His contemporary American menu is served in a glass-ceilinged conservatory that pairs well with the Gatsby-ish vibe.
Lis Bar
New York State’s first capital and an artist hub these days, Kingston boasts a charming Polish-inspired restaurant-bar in its Midtown Arts Distric. The husband-and-wife team of Jonathan and Patricia Rich serve borscht, pierogi and other small dishes to complement the natural wines from Eastern Europe.

Six mosaic dog statues are guarding the Garment District
Six gigantic dogs, which are four times bigger than the breeds they represent, have been installed on Broadway within the Garment District. The installation, called Doggy Bags, was created by artist Will Kurtz, who used recycled plastic bags and duct tape to create a pug, a basset house, a chihuahua, an English bulldog, a bill mastiff and a vizsla. There’s even a temporary "bark run" for actual dogs and their owners between 40th and 41st streets. The Garment District Alliance hopes the doggos will welcome people back to the neighborhood in a fun and positive way.
