Salinas, New York

Patrons enjoy a mix of traditional and inventive Spanish tapas prepared by chef Luis Bollo at New York’s Salinas. The Chelsea restaurant has a hand-operated retractable roof that is opened on summer nights; a long boating pole that connects to a hook is used to slide the wheeled panels. “We wanted to bring that feeling of outdoor living that is popular in Spain to the city and also be able to utilize the room year-round,” says Mary Catherine Mikula, one of the owners.
