With Indoor Dining On Hold, Here are the Best of Bushwick’s Outdoor Bars & Restaurants

A Comprehensive Guide to Outdoor Dining in Bushwick.

Restaurants and bars have suffered significantly during the pandemic, there are some that have adapted while many remain closed. After a wintery-spring spent in quarantine, most of us are ready to enjoy a drink and a meal under the sun at our go-to spot, but that doesn't mean it's time to stop taking precautions.  The virus is still out there and a handful of states are only just now seeing what is (hopefully) the worst of it.  Make sure to wear proper PPE and sanitize frequently, not just for yourself but for the sake of people you might come in contact with - especially the wait staff that's serving you an icy beer or a frozen marg.

The following list is arranged by subway stop for your convenience - but since things are constantly changing due to the pandemic and scattered reopenings, we advise that you check the restaurant website and/or instagram before making your plans.  Enjoy and if you're up for it, try to hit them all before the summer ends!

The breakdown is as follows:

Morgan Ave L Stop | Jefferson L Stop | DeKalb L Stop: | Myrtle/Wyckoff L and M Knickerbocker M | Central M | Myrtle Ave/Broadway | Kosciuszko Street J | Chauncey St. J, Z/Halsey M
