Head to the Village for a day spent outdoors in glorious autumn weather. Start with breakfast at French Roast, where you can sip your Cafe Au Lait at their sidewalk cafe. Then head to Citarella and Bigelow's to pick up essentials to picnic, stay moisturized and people-watch in Washington Square Park. Not into picnics? Check out Joy Burger for outside lunch options while its still warm enough.
After a lazy afternoon spent in the park, wander the tree-lined streets of the Central Village and admire the 19th-Century domestic architecture. End up at the Jefferson Market garden for an afternoon tour, and perhaps you'll even catch a performance on the right day. Finally, grab dinner and a glass of wine across the street at Olio, where al fresco dining takes center stage in one of the Village's most charming piazzas.
