The Resy Guide to Outdoor Dining in New York


Summer is here! What does that mean for alfresco dining? Dining rooms may be open at full capacity, but one silver lining of the pandemic is that more restaurants than ever before are equipped with streetside patios, in addition to the lucky few with gardens, rooftops, and the like. Grab an outdoor Resy and brave the humidity, because the time is now to revel in the feel-good energy of New York City in the late stage of the pandemic.

As always, don’t let your excitement get in the way of following any restaurant rules regarding mask-wearing and contact tracing, and tip well!

From Greenpoint all the way to the Upper West Side, here’s a handy guide for where to dine outdoors. 

New on 7/27: Yellow Rose, Barney Greengrass, Shukette, Achilles Heel, Cafe Gitane (Vinegar Hill), Sel Rrose, Hancock St, Red Hook Lobster Pound, Ruta Oaxaca Mexican Cuisine, French Louie.
