38 Michelin-Starred NYC Restaurants Open for Outdoor Dining or Takeout

From patio omakases and build-your-own tasting menus to $5 soft serve ice cream, these 38 Michelin-starred restaurants have adapted their menus for outdoor dining

View as Map

Less than half of the city’s 71 Michelin-starred restaurants now remain closed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and a growing list of them have adapted their ambitious fare for outdoor dining. Others have implemented delivery and takeaway programs — in an effort to become more accessible and to keep their staffs employed too.

This map can help you find the Michelin-starred restaurants that are still open. Keep in mind that while some of these venues have opted to reserve some — or all — of their seating for walk-in customers, others have reopened with a reservation-only model, with some tables being booked-out weeks in advance. Check Resy, OpenTable, and the Instagram pages of restaurants for the most up-to-date reservation statuses.

A number of New York City restaurants have resumed outdoor dining services. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for outdoor dining, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the NYC Health Department’s website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.

Among the current items are fresh Alaskan king crab salad with little gem lettuce ($88), chicken soup with truffles and foie gras ($26), Norwegian langoustines with Japanese rice and scallions ($76), and green tea tiramisu ($24).

Momofuku Ko

Sean Gray and Su Wong Ruiz’s Momofuku restaurant now offers la carte pickup, delivery, and outdoor dining, a stark change for the two Michelin-starred spot, which has traditionally focused its efforts on long and expensive tasting menus at a chef’s counter. Current takeout dishes include cold fried chicken ($25), spicy tomato pie ($28), salt and sugar doughnuts ($12), and a burger kit ($30). Outdoor dining involves a $110, five-course menu, which is much cheaper than the traditional tasting.
