Day or night, the patio space at Virgil’s is always a scene. Small palm trees on the outdoor space, strong cocktails that remind you of vacation, and pulsating music transform this normally uneventful West Midtown strip into a summery hotspot. On those nice days, Virgil’s fourth wall/garage door is up, so you get the full open-air dining experience whether you’re seated on the actual patio or in the main dining room. There’s also an open-air rooftop space, which gives you views of the city skyline.

But whether you come for mimosas and crab-topped shrimp and grits for their Soul Brunch or are just there to socialize over fried wings and their dangerously good Geecheeritas (their house margarita made with Henneseey and Grand Marnier), it’ll be a nice day well spent.
