A patio tour from Alec and Helen

Back in the summer of 2019, we set out to find the best patio in Brooklyn. You might even say we were into outdoor dining
before
it was cool. Since then, we’ve vetted
12
(and counting) of the best backyards Bk has to offer so you don’t have to.

If you’re on your phone, you can check them out and check them off yourself.

What really
is
a patio anyway?

You’d be surprised what people think they can pass off as a patio
. For our purposes, let’s agree that a patio is an open air, four-walled enclosure behind a bar or restaurant.

How do you know a good patio when you see one?

Easy.
@Greenery 🌿
,
@Walls 🧱
,
@Furniture 🪑
, and
@Lights 💡
. Every patio we visit gets a score from 1 to 5 for each. For
@X Factor 🙅‍♀️
, we give a score from 1 to 10 (meaning it’s weighted twice as heavily as the other four factors).

So what’s the best patio in Brooklyn?

By our count:
@Brooklyn Ice House
@Bricolage
