7 Outdoor Restaurants in New York You Need to Try

As pandemic restrictions have slowly been rolled back over the last few months, the popularity of outdoor dining has exploded. With the streets of New York suddenly filled with hungry city-dwellers, it can be difficult to choose where to enjoy a night out. Luckily, we’ve got you covered. Whether, you’re in Rochester or the heart of New York City, there are more than enough choices to go around.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Of course, you don’t need a list to see the countless restaurants offering outdoor dining in the Big Apple. And a few other cities throughout the state have more than enough safe options if you’re looking to enjoy a night out. Of course, they won’t all look like the Gitani Garden of Love or have a view of the Hudson River. But if you’re in one of these cities this fall, it could be the perfect time for a special occasion and some of the best food in town.
