Spots with Heated Outdoor Dining in NYC

Stay warm outdoors at these Cobble-approved spots.

01

Dagon

2454 Broadway, New York, NY 10024, United States

01

Almost immediately after opening, Dagon was named one of the best new restaurants in NYC. This speaks volumes in a city like New York, which sees new food spots come and go on the reg. Dishes boast exciting flavors like the Sasso Chicken Liver with mustard seeds, date syrup, crispy shallot and Baharat (a Middle Eastern spice). The fresh flavors pair delightfully with the authentic Israeli pop music which subtly plays on in the background. This place is nice little respite from the overpacked downtown spots, with a taste of the coastal Mediterranean.

02

One White Street

1 White St, New York, NY 10013, United States

One White Street

What happens when you put Eleven Madison Park’s Master Sommelier Dustin Wilson and Frenchie’s Michelin-Starred chef Austin Johnson under one roof, and that roof is over a historic townhouse? One White Street is what.

This joint venture was a two-year labor of love and it shows. Each beautifully decorated level of this townhouse-turned-restaurant caters to a different clientele with a different menu. On the first floor, enjoy casual, but chic vibes with their seasonal, a la carte menu, and on the upstairs two levels, experience their six-course $148 tasting menu. All ingredients are sourced directly from Johnson’s own upstate-NY-based farm, Rigor Hill.

03

Haven Rooftop

132 W 47th St, New York, NY 10036, United States

Haven Rooftop

132 W 47th St, New York, NY 10036, United States

Located on top of the Sanctuary Hotel, Haven Rooftop offers its visitors a chance to indulge in Manhattan’s Midtown views while enjoying modern American cuisine, craft cocktails, and cool music. Enjoy a tented outdoor dining space with decorations that change seasonally.

04

Syndicated

40 Bogart, Brooklyn, NY 11206, United States

04

Whatever evening you crave, you'll find it at Syndicated. Come grab a drink or meal in their airy open bar/restaurant space, or catch a movie in their 60-seat theater. Want both? No problem. Their theater is full-service, and you can enjoy the restaurant's full menu from the comfort of your seat.

05

Lafayette

380 Lafayette St, New York, NY 10003, United States

Lafayette

This large, airy Belle Epoque-style restaurant (complete with a full bakery) has got its French cuisine on lock. You’ll find plenty of seafood options on their seasonal menu, alongside some good land options. With the high ceilings, romantic lighting, and intimate tables, this is a great spot for a romantic brunch or to impress a big group.

06

Dr. Clark

104 Bayard St, New York, NY 10013, USA

Dr. Clark

104 Bayard St, New York, NY 10013, USA

This spot is New York's first Hokkaido restaurant. Book the heated Kotatsu table for up to 6 people for a unique dining experience.

07

Rolo's

853 Onderdonk Ave (Cornelia Street), Ridgewood, NY 11385, United States

07

Rolo's in Ridgewood is a neighborhood restaurant and grocery store focused on cooking over a wood-fired grill. Browse the high-end grocery displays, offering fresh pastas, sauces, quality meats, produce, and other salads and pickles.

08

Pastis

52 Gansevoort St, New York, NY 10014, United States

Pastis

The iconic Pastis first opened its doors in the late 90s in the Meatpacking District and built a loyal following for its Bistro-chic vibes and tasty French fare. Sadly, though, it eventually closed in 2014. It's back now, and its new home--just down the street from the original, pays homage to its predecessor through the details; enjoy the same classic curved zinc bar outfitted with signature subway tiles, vintage mirrors with handwritten daily specials, and a mosaic-tiled floor. Dine on the classics like their Salade Niçoise and Steak Frites.

09

Olmsted

659 Vanderbilt Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238, United States

Olmsted

659 Vanderbilt Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238, United States

James Beard finalist Greg Baxtrom packs a veggie-heavy menu at Olmsted, his first foray into the New York City Dining scene, making this farm-to-table restaurant an oasis in the heart of Brooklyn. Despite his fine-dining background — his resume includes three Michelin-starred restaurants Alinea in Chicago and Per Se here in NYC — this neighborhood restaurant is low-key with its chef’s kitchen counter seating, living wall, and woodsy indoor-outdoor feel. It's also extremely affordable considering its vibe and pedigree.

10

Mudspot

307 E 9th St, New York, NY 10003, United States

10

Mud Coffee made its claim to fame via the Mudtruck — “the first original Specialty Street Vendor in NYC.” Like most New York small biz success stories, soon after, its permanent location came into existence. Nestled in the main level of a cozy little brick building on East 9th (which you'd totally miss if it weren't for the crowds outside), this spot is a triple threat: by day a cafe where you'll find freelancers posted up with their laptops, by evening-- a bar, and on the weekends-- the perfect brunch spot. Our favorite part besides the perfectly brewed coffee? If you walk through the railroad style indoor space, you'll find a secret, little garden out back.
