‘Tis the season for sunshine, evening breezes, and outdoor dining in New Orleans. Treat yourself to a delicious meal and a glass of wine in a lovely atmosphere - whether it be along the water or in a tucked-away courtyard. Whether you’re on the hunt for brunch, tacos, casual or upscale, there are plenty of options for dreamy al fresco dining in New Orleans. 

See below for a few of our top picks, or check out the full list of restaurants with outdoor seating that are currently open for dine-in. And don’t forget to bring a mask–while you won’t need one while eating, of course, it’s important to mask up when you arrive at the restaurant to keep everyone healthy and safe.
