Can’t argue with that!
I was never able to find it while I lived on the island, but Refinery29 did. Click the link to read more.
It’s harder than you think to find a good outdoor brunch in NYC. Not to mention without an hour wait.
I’m not sure what the situation will be, but I think this new brunch is worth a shot.
Tomorrow is the opening of Saturday brunch at The Cabanas on the roof of the Maritime Hotel.
They promise the music will be a better selection than techno beat that floods W Broadway and the Meat Packing district. Not to mention they’ll actually be serving food (you know who you are Merkato).
The menu will offer Italian specials by Chef Bart Retolatto from La Bottega Trattoria. As I have not seen the actual “Cabanas” menu, I have no idea what the price range will be, but you can guesstimate by the La Bottega brunch.

Looking to enjoy the summer heat with a cocktail in hand? It’s actually not as easy as you would think in NYC.
My NYC inside source (aka Sarah who has tried them all) offers you her list of local spots you can overindulge without overspending.
Water Taxi Beach - it just used to be in Queens but now they’ve opened one in Manhattan @ SSS. Always a fun time. Kind of cheesy but in a good way. Turns super fun at night.
Frying Pan - buckets of Corona (6 for $30) pretty good deal, decent food, on a boat & pier so can be a bit rocky but tons of fun, and always a few tables of hot guys.
Me Bar @ La Quinta rooftop - I know this sounds random, but it is so fun and cheap, I promise.
Sixth Ward - nice garden, typical irish bar.
The Delancey - kind of a dive , but has a good roof.
Loreley - a great little pub, good garden, good food, clean, great music.
The Park - it isn’t exactly outside, it has an atrium but the garden is cool, has a dance floor inside, probably the most expensive on this list though but still not too bad ($8 vodka soda)
- B Bar and Grill - Not a party, but would be fun with the right group. One of the best Portabello sandwiches I’ve ever had. Big patio. Tasty sangria. A fun diner atmosphere. Open 24/7.
