HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J. -- It’s hard to resist the summertime combo of sipping and noshing outdoors. All you need is some sun (or shade) and your choice of a secluded patio, sidewalk seating or a rooftop deck -- and someone else doing the cooking, cleaning and serving.

Why It's Outdoor Worthy: Located downtown, this unfussy four-year-old Greek eatery has built a fan base with simple, but freshly prepared, Mediterranean fare such as grilled chicken, lamb burgers and spinach pie. Its outdoor seating is situated on a paved patio, surrounded by flowering plants, where date-nighters can linger over sinfully rich baklava cheesecake and espresso. It doesn’t have a liquor license, so BYOB.
