Alternative Outside Spaces...

Well now that we've had our fill of the pros and cons of the Beer Garden, i want to find myself another option. And what better way to do that then to try out all the open air "backyard" type establishments we have at our disposal? You figure, there has to be at least one that will appeal to any one of us looking for a replacement.

Now, am i as daring as the girls over at Alpha Astoria with their cafe project? I don't think so. But i think that checking out one of these backyard beauties a week shouldn't be all that ridiculous! So i ask you fellow Astorians- where else can i venture to for my little al fresco adventure? I'd be thrilled if there were more then 10. And please, no places with the word "cafe" in the name!

All i know of so far is Fatty's, i have to check on when they're opening the outside (if its not open yet) Cavo, Central, and Hell Gate Social. Bring on the recommendations, i'll start a list and report back with pics and revues.
Im on a mission.

there's an irish pub on broadway near bai sushi that serves good food and has a little garden out back.

I thought they opened the garden at Fatty's last weekend perhaps? It should be open by now.

You do know Fatty's is technically called Fatty's Cafe, right? But don't let it put you off, it's my favorite place to eat in the neighbourhood.

Well there's always the backyard of Fleming's.

Kidding! Just kidding. That place smells like pee.

Hellgate Social's outdoor space is very cool, not too large, but as a plus you can look into people's apartments ... heh.

astoriacyclist, you were right about the chavo! with some hot sauce, it hit the spot.
