The outdoor dining experience in Philly has been taken to another level due to Covid and social distancing restrictions. As someone who loves to be outside, I am here for these new set-ups that seem to be permanent fixtures all over the city. Check out the following restaurants that have stepped up their outdoor dining game, making a trip there not just about the food.
Greenhouse in Rittenhouse
Harper’s Garden has an outdoor veranda and individual glass greenhouses, making for a cozy, aesthetically pleasing dining experience. Heating is provided in their outdoor dining experience for extra chilly days!
Covid has been all about bubbles. Continue to stay in yours by dining at Mercato, an Italian BYOB. They have individual bubble rooms set up along the street, perfect for that socially distanced dinner.
New to the city, Juno is a great place to dine outdoors. Their expansive patio is decorated with fun colors, funky signs, and greenery all around. They have a covered option for rainy or chilly days as well!
Though Independence Beer Garden has always been outdoors, they have included dividers and privacy walls for better temperature control. Sit in their front garden for that full “beer garden” experience.
