Mainly came to see scenery from Home alone 2, the wife's favourite film. Also managed to get a very nice but reasonably priced coffee in there. It was cold but ambient. Lovely.

I especially love the overall tranquility of the wide park. Ofcourse, this was a must-visit for all fans of Friend's TV Series

This has become a go to place for special occasions. I’ve also booked a corporate event here that my clients referred to as the best work dinner I’ve booked. Great food, great space, great service and ambiance. I’ll return here many times.

It will be cold. Also make sure that you and your guests have excellent directions to the Cove and that they will need to walk there, probably from the West 72d Street entrance.
