It's that time of year again - which kosher restaurants have outdoor seating in Manhattan?

    Prime KO and Prime at the Bentley both have outdoor seating - Prime at the Bentley has the added benefit of an AMAZING view

      Good to know, thanks ahuva! I'm particularly hoping to find some places in a lower price range.

        Talia's has outdoor seating. But that would require eating at Talia's.

        Bravo downtown has outdoor seating. Unless another pizza place has outdoor seating, that may be your cheapest option in Manhattan.

          It doesn't necessarily have to be the cheapest, just not quite Prime Grill level. That being said, I feel like there aren't too many mid-range kosher places in Manhattan...

            With crowded streets, traffic noises and high pollution levels it could be that most restaurants feel no need for outdoor seating. Now if the restaurant has a view or is away from the usual hustle and bustle of Manhattan streets then I could see it. Also the window is quite small, too cold in the winter and heat and bugs in the summer leave a rather narrow opportunity to enjoy the outdoors.

            Here in the 5 towns Sabra Pizza (may it rest in peace) had at times outdoor seating and I hardly saw much use out of it. Most people ate indoors.

              Plenty crowded, loud and dirty cities have restaurants with outdoor seating. I think this is another area that kosher just falls short because of the "it's all we have" mentality.

                There are kosher restaurants in Manhattan with outdoor seating. Especially in areas where the treif places have outdoor seating. I think this is just Marty's anti-Manhattan worldview coming through.

                Manhattan is filled with sidewalk dining, and more areas are permitted every year. Just very few kosher ones.

            Cafe Chagall. Brooklyn. Delighted to discover that the front wall turns out to be French doors that fold open. We effectively sat on the sidewalk, in Park Slope. Lovely.

              The bagel/sandwich/pizza shop at Amsterdam and 79th has outside tables.

                Hi Adina, I've never seen outdoor tables there, is this a recent development or have I missed them?

                  They have been there ever summer for years. Just a few tables and chairs at a bagel shop. Not table service. I'll look and see if they're still there.

                    PotatoPuff is correct. The outdoor tables at 79th are gone.
