The warm weather of spring has brought New Yorkers out of their winter hibernation. In honor of rising temperatures, blooming flowers, and sunshine, we give you 10 charming restaurants where you can dine al fresco and pair your meal with the great urban outdoors.
When you’re dining in Narcissa‘s gardens, it’s hard to believe that you’re actually in the East Village of Manhattan. The trees offer a natural shady reprieve, while the sun trickles through. Enjoy their lamb meatballs with ricotta salata while sipping on The Tall Grass, which is vodka with cucumber and apple topped off with champagne.
Located right under the Brooklyn Bridge, Gran Eléctrica’s fresh Mexican fare will leave you wanting more. Their outdoor seating, while nice during the day, is absolutely magical at night, with twinkling lights fostering a truly romantic atmosphere. Try the chorizo con papas or opt for a classic taco, and no matter what, pair your meal with the margarita helada de guava picante.
