The Draw: You won't find too many versatile outdoor settings in NYC, but this one's ready for the weather -- no matter if it's hailing or sunny and 70. Meet Salinas, a vibrant Chelsea hotspot serving up Mediterranean fare and fresh gusts of outdoor air -- thanks to perhaps the coolest retractable roof in town.

The Vibe: This one almost feels like a slick, high-end tree house with its polished wood surfaces, vibrant greenery and custom limestone fireplace (okay, a stretch for a tree house.) Makes sense given the tapas and other Spanish selections on chef Luis Bollo's sophisticated menu bring the people together. Almost like a warm day in the park.
