With the humidity behind us and autumn’s chill ahead, September’s the ideal time to eat outdoors. A garden grazing guide.


1. Franny’s
This was the first summer that Franny’s full menu—from exquisite antipasto to peerless pizza—was served in its leafy garden.

2. Gusto
Between Jody Williams’s rustic Italian cooking, the Campari cocktails, and the jumbo umbrellas, this sidewalk café is straight out of a Fellini flick.

3. Brooklyn Fish Camp
Eat your lobster roll the way God and Nature intended: outdoors, on a buttered Pepperidge Farm hot-dog bun.

4. Falai
