Best outdoor restaurant

"Located in the oak-shaded plaza corner of NE 2ndavenue and 39thStreet (163 NE 39thStreet). Maitardi’s experience rests on a casual, outdoors and sociable ambiance, delicious tapas meant for sharing and friendly and professional service. The location has retained its architectural design with the floor to ceiling leaf-mosaic façade along with the native oak trees throughout the patio giving it an irresistible appeal to relax, catch up on work or a book, hang out with friends for happy hour or lunch with a client. Complimentary Wi-Fi and outside bar available" [Annabelle Bovet].

My personal opinion the food is amazing, the drinks are good but the ambience is breathtaking. Its open, fresh, relaxing yet casual and hip. I absolutely LOVE the squid ink risotto and the pancetta vegetariana or the salmon avocado salad if not in the mood for something too heavy.

I love this place! Its good for a meeting, for a date, or for a fun night with the girls!
