Best Outdoor Dining (East Side)

Lure Bistro

From its Caribbean-blue indoor-outdoor carpeting to the vintage brick structures that surround it, Lure Bistro's open-air dining room exudes style and charm. There is handsome landscaping and a burbling fountain for lunch-hour luxe. At night, strands of tiny white lights and candles create a sense of romance. And the chic seating -- which, beyond the handsome glass-topped tables and cobalt-blue market umbrellas, includes long banquettes, settled beneath an airy canopy -- provides a real touch of outdoor class, matched only by the playful, sophisticated cuisine coming out of owner Nick Kustala's kitchen.
