Rooftop eatery features private greenhouses for socially distanced dining

Mayor de Blasio may have decreed that city restaurants must prohibit indoor dining indefinitely, but it isn’t stopping husband and wife Michele and Anisa Iuliano from opening their latest eatery with a social-distancing twist.
