The Resy Guide to Outdoor Dining in New York


Is fall the best season to lap up New York’s new wave of pandemic-induced alfresco dining? Probably. The air is crisp, the outfits are put together, and it’s not winter yet. You’d be smart to enjoy as many patio meals, rooftop drinks, garden catch-ups, and sidewalk dinners as possible while it’s still delightful to do so.

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

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

New on 10/12: Saint Julivert Fisherie, Aldo Sohm, Al Di Là, Penny Bridge, Samurai Mama, Vestry.
