Best Outdoor Dining

Slide 6 of 17

Washington, DC

J&G Steakhouse. When the weather gets warm, the congressmen and senators who dine at superstar chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Capitol Hill steak spot can opt for the sidewalk café instead of the restaurant’s discreet indoor private dining areas.

Standard. Co-owner Tad Curtz built his seasonal (March-December) barbecue spot by hand, from the wooden bar to the outdoor patio’s blue picnic tables. The menu features classics like pulled pork and brisket sandwiches as well as made-to-order doughnuts and craft beers.
