Summerly is the rooftop bar at The Hoxton in Williamsburg, and it kind of feels like a J Crew advertisement or an idealized version of Cape Cod. It has potted plants, strings of lights, and floral bar stools, and the view is incredible. The menu has things like a burger, a few different kinds of pasta, and a lobster roll - but the food is mostly average, so we wouldn’t suggest a full meal here. Stop by for drinks on a particularly nice day, and take a few pictures of the Manhattan skyline. You’ll feel like a tourist, but you’ll also have a very nice picture.

Vinegar Hill House
One of our favorite restaurants in Brooklyn, especially in the summer when their back garden is in full swing. Bring some bug spray, eat a pork chop.
Floret is an all-day American spot on Bowery where you should have a casual meal on the nice outdoor patio.
Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill
Somehow, the Blue Ribbon brand’s new spot is just as excellent as its other outposts, despite being in a Midtown hotel. This spot is expensive though.

The Commodore is bad. Bad because merely looking at the food here will jack up your cholesterol thirty points, and worse because everything is so good that you’ll crave it all the time.
