With fall arriving, the days are limited to enjoy the outdoor dining scene. I am so excited to share some of my favorite outdoor dining spots and would love to hear which are your favorite!
Enjoy your meal in your own mini greenhouse at Ampia Rooftop. With colorful flower gardens, Italian-themed art and décor, and individual greenhouses, order the Tris Signature Dish, which is their homemade classic potato gnocchi with the colors of the Italian flag.
Located aboard the Sherman Zwicker, a large wooden schooner docked at the southwest edge of Hudson River Park’s Pier 25 in Tribeca, come for the boat, but stay for the oysters. Make sure to order their famous oysters, a lobster roll, and stay for sunset to see the views of Downtown Manhattan. If you’re early, play some mini-golf a few steps away.
A tropical gem in the middle of SoHo, the ambiance alone is a reason to check it out. With seating nestled in between leafy plants, order their famous Watermelon Margarita and you’ll forget you’re in the city.
Hidden on a busy street in DUMBO, Gran Electrica has an outdoor garden with plenty of seating. Make sure to order a cucumber margarita, guac and chips, and an order of lamb tacos.
If you find yourself on Governors Island (read your Guide to Governors Island here) make sure to stop at Island Oyster, with unparalleled views, and cute décor.
A Greenpoint mainstay, once you walk into Milk and Roses Bistro you are surrounded by a sea of books. Once you walk through the bar area, you are greeted by a large courtyard filled with plants, antiques and spacious seating.
Reserve your own mini lawn at the Greens at Pier 17 in the Seaport District. Your mini lawn includes a 14 ft. x 14 ft. green space, cabana-style lounge chairs, USB charging part, and a built-in Yeti cooler. The Greens has food and beverage for on-site purchase, as well as game lawns where you can play bocce ball, cornhole, tic tac toe, giant jenga and more.
An oyster bar aboard a 1924 wooden racing schooner docked at Pier 6 in Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pilot is in the same restaurant family as Grand Banks and Island Oyster. Explore the various Piers as you overlook the Manhattan skyline.
A taco stand in Williamsburg’s Domino Park, order a classic margarita and an order of tacos. Grab a seat at their outdoor space, or explore Domino Park, looking to the Downtown Manhattan skyline.
Located in the heart of Chelsea, the High Line Hotel, once an apple orchard and cathedral, boasts lush gardens. Head to Intelligentsia’s double decker bus to grab a cup of coffee, then stay to grab a drink at Daisy’s Cocktail Garden.
