The Best Restaurants To Eat Outdoors In The Big Apple

We can't say it enough: Spring is here. Well, it's been here for a while, but it finally feels like it's really, really here. (We have not spotted any stocking-clad feet on the subway for the past week.) In honor of the warm weather, here's a roundup of restaurants with good outdoor seating. Who wants to leave the office to spend happy hour in a dark, cavernous space while outside the sun teases you with its beautiful setting? Now is the time to enjoy the breeze while you dine—it's not too cold, and it's not yet summer (read: steamy suffocating hotness). Not to mention the prime fashion real estate—snagging an outdoor dinning table is akin to sitting front row at the best fashion shows.
Click through to see where to eat—and what—to feel the breeze (in a good way)!
