Pergola is a great example of a fantastic restaurant to head to that isn’t too far away from areas of Manhattan that are truly popular like Times Square and Penn Station for instance.  The bilevel bistro is located in the fabulous flower district, where its location once was an actual flower shop that has now transformed into a Mediterranean feast of sorts for thousands of followers to enjoy.  This past Thursday, they threw a big party to celebrate some new things they have planned for the summer that include Petal Pops, Picnic Crates, and more!

Pergola celebrated the summer with a stunning soiree on Thursday.  The night, sponsored by Moet Hennessy, featured Moet Chandon and Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc wine from Western Australia.  Guests also got the opportunity to try Pergola’s frozen, alcoholic Petal Pops from FrutaPOP, which are made with Tito’s Vodka, Elderflower, Lemonade and Edible Flowers, which they sell from their Adult Lemonade Stand and Garden Bar.

The restaurant also let diners in on a secret.  The restaurant also offers gourmet pre-made picnic baskets through their website for a perfect day in the park or present for a friend, colleague or loved one.
