High Line Lunch, NYC

New York’s High Line remains one of my favourite outdoor spaces.

The ever changing art, spectacular light and eclectic vibe make it unlike anywhere else in the world.

And I have a great little place to grab lunch underneath it!

Nestled below The Whitney (another must visit, and a great place to disappear for an afternoon) you’ll find a little Mediterranean place called Santina.

Really all you need to know is that they serve cocktails in ceramic pineapples.

And they’re good, too!

The menu changes frequently, but they specialize in light, tasty Italian food.

The rice dishes are a must, my personal favourite is the spicy shrimp version.

Almost like a cross between a paella, a risotto and egg fried rice, but less heavy.

Perfectly balanced flavours and very comforting.

The swordfish is another triumph and just what we were looking for after a week of fried food!

After lunch and a few of those cocktails you have to take yourself off for an explore.

Especially if the sun is shining like it did for us!

There’s nothing like spring to put a little spring in your step!

We climbed way up onto The High Line to drink in the art, the views, the sunshine and the live music dotted along the way.

Cross streets always provide the best views if you ask me.

We don’t have straight streets like this in Europe, and they never fail to amaze me with their sheer scale.

And iconic yellow taxis, of course.

After our leg stretch we dissolved into The Whitney and didn’t emerge for a good few hours.

What is it they say? The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time?

Seems pretty fitting to me!
