Outdoor brunch recs

i'm looking for a great outdoor brunch place with outdoor seating options, anything sidewalk, patio, garden, or even street side tables with the accordion window/doors that make you feel like you're outside. I'm not willing to sacrifice food for atmosphere (and in that vein, can I even consider the boathouse in ctrl pk?) but on the other hand, have no problem grabbing doughnut plant and sitting outside if I can't find a worthwhile place for a sit-down brunch. Does Public have such outdoor options?

  1. Tough inquiry if you're not willing to sacrifice food for atmosphere. Also I can think of some places where they have literally 2-3 tables outside and the wait is long enough for a table as it is (Jane, Sarabeth's UWS)!

    Public doesn't have outdoor seating IIRC.

    Locanda Verde does. Brunch is great there. Not sure if it's first come, first served, but they do take reservations for brunch. Most of the outdoor seating I've encountered is first come, first served.
