Five great outdoor dining spots in Greenwich Village

It's all about outdoor dining in 2020 and luckily, there are plenty of choices in Greenwich Village.

Part of Greenwich Village’s charm is the mix of restaurants you’ll find on every street. There are still some mom-and-pop businesses squeezed in between the trendier restaurants du jour and other spots catering to NYU students. But just like New York, you can find almost anything you’re looking for whether it’s the famed dosa man and his cart at Washington Square Park or one of the best bars in the city (which was also rated the top bar in the world). Here’s where to go:

Minetta Tavern

Restaurants French Greenwich Village

Keith McNally revived this historic restaurant with his signature French bistro flare. But it’s the burger—the Black Label, in particular—that garners all the accolades and makes this place feel like it’s an all-American with some old timey European touches.

The vegetable-packed menu—such as a grilled strawberry salad or a squash blossom pizza—is a case study in why Dan Kluger is one of the city’s most respected chefs. The farm-to-table ethos here doesn’t feel heavy handed and is perfect for outdoor dining this fall.

The light, savory South Indian crepes known as dosas, stuffed with curried potatoes and vegetables, are well-prepared at this vegan stand by beloved vendor Thiru “Dosa Man” Kumar. You’ll have the entire park as your dining room.

In 2019, Dante was recognized as the best bar bar in the world. If there’s one drink that could be credited with reviving this neighborhood mainstay, it’s the Negroni. It’s difficult to score a table here with all the demand but once you’re seated, you have an entire menu of Negroni and riffs on the classic Italian cocktail to drink all day.

Restaurants Italian Greenwich Village

Michael Toscano’s take on regional Italian cuisine takes some delightful turns with some modern touches as well as Southern inspiraton such as a Prochetta Cubano and a spaghetti tossed with lump crab, roasted corn and jalapeno pesto. It’s comfort food that’s perfect for al fresco dining.
