NYC’s Best Dog-Friendly Restaurants

It’s finally warm enough to leave the house which means – to dog owners who prefer to return home to clean carpets – getting your pet in on the outdoor eating and/or drinking action. With my go-to spot for this purpose temporarily closed, I scoured the city in search of NYC’s best dog-friendly restaurants – find one in (or around) your ‘hood below:

Fiddlestick's NYCFiddlestick’s

Neighborhood: West Village/Greenwich Village

Address: 56 Greenwich Ave, New York, NY 10011 (at Perry St.)

Phone Number: (212) 463-0516

Good For: Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, Happy Hour, Day Drinking, Late Night

There’s ample outdoor seating and dogs are given their own water bowl upon arrival. Though the food is nothing special, the atmosphere makes up for it when in search of a chill brunch (with a free cocktail included) on a nice weekend afternoon.



Crave Fish Bar NYCCrave Fish Bar

Neighborhood: Midtown East

Address: 945 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10022 (near 50th St.)

Phone Number: (646) 895-9585

Good For: Sunday Brunch, Lunch, Dinner

The food is great and – though they only offer a few tables outside – if you can snag one, it’s a great “non-midtown” midtown spot… if you know what I mean.


Shake Shack NYCShake Shack

Neighborhood: Battery Park City/Financial District

Address: 215 Murray St, New York, NY 10282 (between West St. and North End Ave.)

Phone Number: (646) 545-4600

Good For: Lunch, Dinner, Day Drinking (wine and beer)

Take a walk down the West Side Highway with your pooch to burn off at least some of the calories you’ll consume once you reach this destination. Their “woof” menu means you can both be treated to some of NYC’s most indulgent fast food.


The Quarter NYCThe Quarter

Neighborhood: West Village

Address: 522 Hudson St, New York, NY 10014 (at W. 10th St.)

Phone Number: (212) 691-3252

Good For: Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, Happy Hour, Day Drinking

The outdoor seating is limited but offers unbeatable people (and pet) watching. Plus they have fantastic food and an impressive wine list to match.


Sant Ambroeus SoHo NYCSant Ambroeus

Neighborhood: SoHo

Address: 265 Lafayette St. New York, NY 10012 (between Prince St. and Spring St.)

Phone Number: (212) 966-2770

It’s new, it’s trendy, the menu and wine list are amazing. If that’s your thing, this is your spot.


The Randolph at Broome NYCThe Randolph at Broome

Address: 349 Broome St, New York, NY 10013 (between Elizabeth St. and Bowery)

Phone Number: (212) 274-0667

Hipsters and their pups file in here, particularly on weekend afternoons. If the limited outdoor seating is taken, try your luck a few doors down Randolph Beer.


Serafina Upper West NYCSerafina Upper West

Neighborhood: Upper West Side

Address: 2178 Broadway, New York, NY 10024 (at 77th St.)

Phone Number: (212) 595-0092

If you’re looking for something a little more upscale (and “typical Upper East Side”) Bistro Chat Noir does a great job of accommodating pampered pets.

Though there are only a few tables outside, they rarely fill up and they offer views of the Hudson River – gorgeous at sunset.
