Drinking and Dining Outdoors? Here’s the Ultimate Sidewalk Cafe Map

Here it is, folks. If you’re looking to plunk down on the avenue and get a buzz on while your fellow denizens scurry to and fro as if there’s more to life than slurping oysters in God’s great outdoors, this is the only map you’ll need all summer. Give it a gander to find most every bar and restaurant with sidewalk seating in the B+B domain. And go ahead and bookmark this bad boy, because we’ll be adding to it throughout the summer to make it still more comprehensive. It’s like the Boss said: when you’re out in the street, you feel all right.

The Black Ant, opening tonight in the East Village, doesn’t look much like any other Mexican restaurant in town, and that’s the way the owner likes it. “Our inspiration is Salvador Dali and Buñuel,” explains Jorge Guzman, who is Dominican but has spent time in Mexico. “All Mexican restaurants go with the same old ideas — it’s what they know. But we wanted something different. And you know, Mexico is so surreal.”
