Setting a Serene Tone

When the weather is warm, dining in a garden can be magical.


Heading outside onto decks and terraces can be safe and fun, but finding a lovely corner out on a resort's extended property can add privacy and delight to an evening. At the Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club in Florida, the 4,200-square-foot Tea Garden, with its romantic fountain and lush local flora, is just such a spot for dining. The space hosts up to 200 guests reception-style, 150 buffet-style and 40 in a U-shape layout.
