DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. -- It’s hard to resist the summertime combo of sipping and noshing outdoors. All you need is some sun (or shade) and your choice of a secluded patio, sidewalk seating or a rooftop deck -- and someone else doing the cooking, cleaning and serving.

Why It's Outdoor Worthy: Its open and interesting layout give guests a great view of the Hudson no matter where they’re sitting. There are two outdoor patios close enough to the river’s shore that you can hear the waves lapping and the geese honking as they paddle by. There are also benches down a path lit by torches for romantic post-dinner strolls. The Tappan Zee Bridge can be seen from the north patio, and the New York City skyline and George Washington Bridge from the south patio. There is also an outdoor bar for cocktails and other liquid refreshments.
