The Resy Guide to Outdoor Dining in New York


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.

As always, don’t let your excitement get in the way of following restaurant rules about mask-wearing and anything else. Tip well, and enjoy the dog days!

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

New on 9/15: Rangoon, Lodi, Rosemary’s East, Van Da, Cherry On Top, Salumeria Rosi.
