Nothing flaunts Yonkers revitalization quite like the outdoor dining at Dolphin, which lets tables spill out onto the sidewalk for views of the Hudson River and the Yonkers pier as well as lots of decent people-watching.
There are plenty of little sidewalk-seating enclaves in Larchmont, but we’re particularly fond of grabbing a steak and an ice-cold martini at this shady grouping of tables anchored by flowing potted plants.
On weeknights, this outpost of the Manhattan mini-chain fills up quickly with after-work crowds grabbing drinks and an early dinner. Dining is even better on weekends, when the vibe under the sunny-yellow awnings is mellower, but the people-watching is just as good.
Drop your shopping bags and put your feet up at Ruby’s Oyster Bar after a long day of shopping! Ruby’s serves up fresh raw bar, colorful salads, and a wide selection of wine right on Purchase Street. Plus, if sidewalk dining isn’t for you, they have a back patio set up as well.
Anytime the weather warms, a sea of open umbrellas signals that Village Social’s popular, East Main Street patio is open for business, serving crisp cocktails and shareable plates of pretzel-crusted tuna and mango salad.
