We’ve Made it to Phase 2: Where to Eat in NYC

It’s finally here. Feels like yesterday I was crying into a pillow over the loss of restaurant life. Now I cry into a pillow for different reasons. But anyway.

This list will be expanding as time goes on, but here’s a few places where you can dine (and drink) al fresco, broken out by neighborhood. If you have any spots that I missed, drop it in the comments and I’ll add it! Some places are opening a little later than others, so I’ve added the dates here for when that is scheduled to happen.
