25 Fall-Friendly Outdoor Dining Options in NYC
The team at Den Hospitality may be known for tucked-away, speakeasy cocktail bars like Borrachito and The Garret Bars, but their latest venture leaves everything out in the open with an eye-catching corner location and incredible outdoor seating options. Bandits is a modern take on a retro diner and dive bar with drinks crafted by beverage director Max Stampa-Brown. Enjoy bar snacks like a New Jersey-style hot dog, cauliflower wings, and lots of tater tot varieties surrounded by ‘70s aesthetic with black-and-white checkerboard floors and old-school diner signage on the individual outdoor dining booths.

As the latest sister spot to The Garret Bars, this bar from Den Hospitality is located at the former Daddy-O corner space and takes inspiration from old-school diners and dive bars. Opened earlier this summer with an interior design concept based on ‘70s NYC and a cocktail program by beverage director Max Stampa-Brown, at Bandits, signature drinks include the Bobby Wasabi (pineapple, wasabi orgeat, shiso) and Bradshaw on Bedford (rose petal, rhubarb, sun dried tomato). The all-day food menu features wings, a burger, tuna melt, and dedicated tots section that include taco tots and halal cart tots.
