With the coming of spring, outdoor dining options abound throughout the Garden State…

Central Kitchen, 717 East Palisade Avenue, Englewood Cliffs, which will debut in early May, will have outdoor seating for 40 on two glass-enclosed patios (one with its own bar!). Bergen County diners can do a little people watching while enjoying the restaurant’s contemporary New American cuisine with an Italian twist.

Damaged during super storm Sandy, Maritime Parc, 84 Audrey Zapp Drive, Liberty State Park, Jersey City, has had its outdoor bar completely rebuilt. Overlooking Liberty Marina, the Hudson River, and the Manhattan skyline, the restaurant’s al fresco space seats 60 for à la carte dining, 30 in the bar area. Dining outdoors features wines on tap and Executive Chef/Owner Chris Siversen’s full restaurant menu. Guests are warmed during cool nights by beautiful new heaters and surrounded by planted herb beds, the fruits of which will be used in delicious cocktails and several menu items.

Red Knot at Galloping Hill, the contemporary American gastropub helmed by longtime Union County resident Executive Chef Ralph Romano, is a highlight of the ambitious new 46,000 square foot Clubhouse at Galloping Hill Golf Course in Kenilworth. The restaurant, which opens in mid-May, features a grand covered slate terrace that seats 50 and overlooks panoramic views of the challenging 271-acre municipal course. This is a great spot to savor Chef Roman’s honest, accessible cuisine that emphasizes the Garden State’s bounty of fresh farm produce, Jersey Shore day boat catch, specialty meats, fine chocolates, cheeses, and beer.

On June 4th, Miami Beach will arrive in West Orange. Sam Mickail’s CUT Steak House, the jewel-box restaurant ensconced within the 4Sixty6 Lounge & Club, will launch its After Work Patio Party on the 5,000 square-foot patio. Guest may sample cool drinks & small bites in one of the dozen Miami-style cabanas, surrounded by palm trees and contemporary sounds in the air. The Patio will be open Tuesday – Friday, 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

At Samba Montclair, score one of the few marble-top bistro tables outside Ilson Goncalves’ Brazilian restaurant and you will enjoy an even more charming time than you would experience indoors. Seated on wrought iron chairs, surrounded by flowers in rustic planters, guests may take in the bustling Park Street scene. Nighttime features twinkling white lights, candles and, of course, truly authentic home-style Brazilian cuisine.

Bon Appétit!
