Best Restaurants in NYC for Outdoor Dining | Juliette

The real calling card at this whimsical Williamsburg bistro (besides rollicking Bastille Day parties and excellent Moules Frites, that is) is their expansive roof deck. Decked out with antique light fixtures and hanging plants, and outfitted with its own bar, “Le Roof” is the perfect place for whiling away a spring evening with a plate of Escargot, a French 75 cocktail, or a chilled bottle of surprisingly affordable Blanc de Blancs.

Best Restaurants in NYC for Outdoor Dining | The Standard Hotel

The restaurants, bars and clubs of the Standard Hotel, which straddle the High Line in the Meatpacking District, are about as fabulously trendy as you'd expect, given its location; it's of-the-moment design (sleek, shiny, AND retro), and its reputation, both here and in Los Angeles, as being a celebrity magnet.

A rooftop brewpub atop Mario Batali’s Italian superstore, Eataly. The space features views of the Flatiron Building and the Empire State Building, plus a sliding-glass roof that allows it to remain open year-round. Get house beers, made on site and devised by Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head, Teo Musso of Baladin, and Leonardo Di Vincenzo of Birra Del Borgo. Excellent but pricey beer-drinking grub includes fennel-laced grilled quail and fat probusto sausages.

Best Restaurants in NYC for Outdoor Dining | Toy

The deck at this Meatpacking District resto is back for a second go-round this summer, and even if you aren't a huge fan of the eatery's playful fare, you're guaranteed a party on the porch along with plenty of pretty people. The alfresco area is tucked away behind latticework that shuts out much of the noise from the cobblestone streets that surround the venue, and groups can split punch bowls and small plates. If you want to get above ground level, the Gansevoort also plays host to perennial rooftop favorite Plunge.
