Summer is enjoying its final strech. And so, yes, 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 spot and brave the humidity, because now is the time to revel in the feel-good energy of New York City in the late stage of the pandemic.
