This summer enjoy a drink outside while people-watching or catching up with a friend. These three restaurants have the best patios in all of New York City!
1. The Farm on Adderley
Located in Brooklyn, this New American restaurant is the place to go for evening cocktails and delicious food. The eatery has all different types of menus, from brunch to dessert, and specializes in farm fresh cuisine. Some of the most popular dishes include the Roasted Chicken and Farm Burger. The Farm Burger is made of pasture-raised beef on a homemade english muffin.
One of the best things about The Farm on Adderley is its lovely garden space. The inside of the restaurant opens up to the back which has a fenced in patio. Trees, overgrown vines, and hanging twinkle lights make you want to spend the entire night here. New dishes on the menu are written with chalkboard paint and when you receive your check a small plastic farm animal will be placed on top.

“Best burgers in the hood. Staff is great for the most part. Love their back patio. We always try to go during off-peak hours as it gets packed really quickly. And for good reason.” one regular explains.
2. Forest Point
Mis-matched furniture and a creative urban feel characterize Forest Point. Located in Bushwick, this restaurant embraces what it called “ambitious creativity.” The cuisine is a modern take on Middle Eastern food. You can enjoy lunch and dinner everyday and a decadent brunch on the weekends.
At Forest Point, some of the more popular dishes for lunch include Steak Tacos and their Cast Iron Cheeseburger. Dinner consists of similar choices but with items like their Shawarma Style Chicken Flatbread mixed in. On an evening out with friends, don’t hesitate to order the Forest Point Cast Iron S’mores. This perfect summer dessert can be shared and is made with a buttery graham cracker crust, Valrhona chocolate ganache, and marshmallow.

One reviewer from Brooklyn described the space, “Located on Flushing Avenue, this restaurant is a classic. Their huge inside allows you to think about a big party dinner or lunch with all your friends and their beautiful garden to a romantic or chill moment in the forest. Nature you said ? Of course. A gorgeous outdoor totally out of time, like a tiny jungle in the middle of the streets.”

Hanging baskets with flowers and a brick patio make Forest Point a great place to sit back outside. Rustic seating and hanging chandeliers make for a cozy evening. When the sun sets, waiters place mason jars with tea lights in them to make the atmosphere even more cozy. Bright colored murals cover the outside and inside wall of this restaurant and makes it a NYC favorite.
3. Mulberry Project
Who knew speakeasies could have such awesome back patios? At the Mulberry Project you’ll find a hip restaurant as well as a backyard space that’s begging for you to bust a move in. Street art, a live DJ, hanging flower beds, and ample seating make this one of the best places to enjoy the outdoors while dining.

In the front of the Mulberry Project you’ll find a speakeasy that’s inspired by “the popular renegade culture of New York City.” There’s small bites like guacamole and chips and skirt steak skewers. The main highlight of the Mulberry Project is it’s cocktails. All you need to do is tell the bartender your favorite ingredients and they’ll whip up the perfect drink for you.
The backyard experience at the Mulberry Project is referred to as the La Isla Escondida pop-up. There’s art hanging outside from artists like Bass and Faile. Groups dance to a live DJ and enjoy some of the best cocktails in the city.

A big fan of the Mulberry Project offered tips on Yelp saying, “Great spot to hang out after work! Showed up around 8PM on a Thursday night and the place got filled up pretty quickly. After standing around for a bit we managed to score 3 seats at the bar. There were a few tables in the place, but unless you are with a big group, I would strongly suggest you try getting a bar stool. Lots of great ingredients here and a good amount of creativity. The food here is a nice touch as well. The buttermilk chicken sandwich and fries were awesome! You can also order food from next door as well if the bar snacks don’t do it for you.”
