Manhattanites can finally relish in the fact that we are hitting 70-degree weather finally, and that it will hopefully stay that way for many months to come.  Now that we aren’t confined to the heated up insides of restaurants, many New Yorkers are choosing options to eat al fresco, or outside, and on a fabulous sunny rooftop.  Well, here at Manhattan Digest, we have found some great locations for you to do both!

Take a look at locations we think you’ll enjoy some food, drink, and fun in the sun, all in the heart of the best city in the world.

Scarpetta New York

**On Saturday, March 14, Scarpetta launched their afternoon Aperitivo and outdoor patio seating/ front cafe for guests to enjoy at 3pm every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This is the FIRST TIME EVER that Scarpetta is opening their doors before dinner!**

With the summer weather on its way (hopefully!) it’s officially time to enjoy with some rosé and light bites! Besides their signature & famous spaghetti dish, Sarpetta will be offering fresh crudi plates like raw yellowtail, tuna ‘susci,’and fluke crudo. Shared plates will also be offered- think girls lunch or afternoon date – with formaggi and salumeria dishes, fresh & light beet salad, and olive ascolane.
