The Great Outdoors

New York Magazine's feature on new outdoor drinking spots got us thinking about some fresh air locations in Brooklyn.

On their list: Williamsburg's d.b.a. Brooklyn, whose backyard patio is now open, and Der Schwarze Koelner in Fort Greene, a beer garden coming this summer.

Some of our own favorites include Alma along Columbia Street, with a great view of Lower Manhattan from the roof-top restaurant, the laid-back atmosphere (and, of course, the Sicilian pizza), from L&B in Gravesend, the subway hideaway that is the Gowanus Yacht Club, and Fort Greene's recently re-opened and eco-friendly eatery Habana Outpost.

What spots are you looking forward to hitting up this summer?
