Spring is right around the corner which means we’re inching closer and closer to outdoor seating weather!!! Literally jumping for joy just thinking about this. If you’re a fellow dog mom and love taking your little man or lady everywhere with you – then you’ll definitely want to bookmark this list. I love taking Charlie out to eat with me. And I have found all of the spots below to be very dog friendly!
Dog Friendly Restaurants in NYC
This cozy West Village Italian spot is the best place to be in the spring and summer because they’ve got great food and a ton of outdoor tables.
Another great Italian spot, this restaurant has several locations all over NYC. I recommend the West Village one because it’s located on a quiet tree lined street!
This healthy, Aussie cafe is all over the city, but their West Village location is my favorite. It’s a good spot to grab a quick coffee, matcha or avocado toast.
Head to the Meatpacking location and sit outside with your pup while you enjoy one of their delicious pizzas and pastas!
Go at an off peak hour (aka not for brunch on a Saturday or Sunday because it’s always packed) and snag 1 of their 4 outdoor tables in the back of the restaurant.
Another charming West Village spot with farm to table style food. They’ve got a few cute seats outside where you can sip rose and people watch!
Sunday in Brooklyn
Grab a table outside at this darling Williamsburg restaurant. I love going for brunch or a late lunch/early dinner!
This is my favorite spot to grab dumplings in the city! It’s casual and seat yourself – aka fuss free. Head to their Nolita location and sit outside with your pup while you enjoy their famous chicken and zucchini dumplings and scallion pancakes – yum!
This low key restaurant in Nolita has been around for decades. The food is delicious and they have a few tables outside. Grab a cupcake at Little Cupcake Bakeshop across the street for dessert!
This beautiful West Village restaurant serves tons of healthy dishes and has a huge patio perfect for people watching and pups!
In terms of neighborhoods with the most dog friendly restaurants and cutest outdoor seating areas – I have to say West Village takes the cake!
