Outdoor Day Margaritas

I'm looking to sit outside during the day on Friday, enjoy the weather, and sip some Margaritas. Anywhere on Manhattan is acceptable. Any recommendations that will be cheaper than Dos Caminos Soho?

  1. The food isn't very good, but there is a Blockheads on 50th between 8th and 9th with almost all of its tables outside in the middle of a plaza. It's a great place to hang out and drink margaritas away from traffic!

      Thanks steph!

      Anyone know any place in the Village or Lower East?
      Maybe with a Friday Brunch?

        Bowery Bar & Grill
        The front entrance nook at Los Dos Molinos
        Dos Caminos - Soho
        El Rio Grande

      1. Second El Rio Grande. Don't care for the margs at Blockheads (too much mix) or Tortilla Flats (very weak). I've never been, but I've heard La Palapas in the East Village has great margs.

          Rio Grande is a good choice depending on the time, though. 4 and later it gets absolutely packed and the margaritas are pre-mixed in massive quantities and poured out of water jugs. If you go early, you won't have that problem.

        2. Mary Anne's on 2nd Ave and 5th St, though I don't much care for the margaritas (or the food, for that matter).
