Back in May, when we pulled together alfresco picks for our Summer Guide, we weren’t expecting another month of gray skies, flash floods, and temperatures chilly enough to make you curse the weather guesser. But look—quick! The sky is blue and the sun is shining (or at least it was). Here, in honor of the occasion, are some more places to sit back and enjoy the breeze.

Ada St. Seasonal small plates from chef Zoe Schor and an expanded—and excellent—seasonal cocktail menu; limited reservations are accepted from 5:30 to 6:30 PM Monday through Saturday.

Bang Bang Pie Shop The Smoke & Whiskey Chocolate Pie proprietress Megan Miller devised as a Father’s Day tribute to her dad—featuring a “bourbon smoked spicy black pepper & smoke bomb salted meringue,” whiskey caramel, and bacon brittle—will be available for the next couple of weeks, along with rotating selections currently including key lime and cherry lattice pies.
