Last summer, in the throes of the pandemic, outdoor dining took off like never before. City streets around the world made way for sprawling patios, enchanting igloos and garden-ready greenhouses. There's no denying that alfresco dining provided a lifeline for restaurants that could no longer offer indoor seating.
As cities around the globe slowly spring back to life, patios and rooftops continue to be in high demand. It got us thinking: What are some of the most extraordinary outdoor dining experiences in the world? We turned to a panel of top chefs to find out. They shared unparalleled food memories from the archive, including a beachside dinner in Tulum, a sunrise breakfast in Kenya and a lively wedding celebration in Taiwan.
Craving more insider insight from the world's best chefs? You're in the right place. Talk to the Chef! is a weekly food series that will tap into the minds of culinary leaders around the globe. The conversation changes just as often, and we'll chat with chefs about everything from podcasts and kitchen equipment to travel and trends.
