NYC Secret Patios

Summer 2020 has been the year of the sidewalk. We’ve gotten drunk on the sidewalk, ate at fine dining restaurants on the sidewalk, and even went on romantic dates. If you are like me then you are over sidewalk dining. A lot may not know but there are outdoor dining available in NYC that does not require being on the sidewalk.
