The Resy Guide to Outdoor Dining in Denver


Locals know that summer is Colorado at its best — and with a bounty of new outdoor dining options, there’s no better way to soak up the season. Many restaurants in the Mile High City are taking advantage of relaxed state rules regarding outdoor seating, either expanding their patios or fashioning new al fresco setups. And if you don’t see your favorite restaurant open yet, you can always use My Hit List to stay notified about when it plans to reopen.

Suffice to say, reservations are highly encouraged — so make one, bring a mask, and generally be extra mindful of good manners.
