There’s something about enjoying a meal outdoors that feels distinctly summer. Maybe it’s hearing the inner-clink of ice cubes inside a glass of chilled lemonade, enjoying the sights and sounds of passersby or those patio chairs that encourage ultimate relaxation. Check out our list of the best Collingswood restaurants with outdoor seating and plan your end of the summer get-together with family and friends before mealtime moves indoors!
Bistro DiMarino | Collingswood, NJ
Bistro DiMarino is a family-owned restaurant serving traditional Italian dishes with a modern flair. Chef James Marino’s creations don’t distract with too many components on the plate; instead, smart cooking methods and local, delicious ingredients do all the talking.
If the simplicity and homemade hearty flavors of chef Marino’s specialties don’t convince you you’re in Tuscany, dining alfresco in the charming courtyard at Bistro DiMarino will do the trick. Soft lighting from draped bulbs that run overhead create a romantic atmosphere without blocking out the view of the twinkling dinner guests above.
IndeBlue | Collingswood, NJ
The energetic spirit that surrounds IndeBlue’s décor, seating and staff is a fitting complement to their delightful dishes that provide guests with a fresh take on conventional Indian cuisine. The full IndeBlue menu offers plenty of chicken, fish, lamb and vegetarian options each delicately prepared, dressed in unique-yet-delectable sauces and seasoned to perfection.
Open for brunch, lunch and dinner with available free delivery, takeout and online ordering, IndeBlue is a versatile spot for whatever mood you’re in: dine in its bright and contemporary interior, out in the refreshing air on their expansive outdoor deck or at home for a date night in.
Even better yet, both Bistro DiMarino & IndeBlue participate in Collingswood’s Farm to Fork Restaurant Week July 19th to 24th, featuring special lunch and dinner menus made up of a variety of tasty dishes each crafted from the area’s local produce.
Zeppoli | Collingswood, NJ
Zeppoli’s 35-seat BYOB restaurant creates an intimate dining experience. Marrying new and old world Italian traditions with a spotlight on Sicilian cuisine, Zeppoli serves simple-yet-savory meals that leave lasting impressions. With a name that translates to “fried dough,” it has to be good.
Cast-iron tables and chairs line Zeppoli’s pleasant patio; the perfect place to sip a Sicilian orange blossom lemonade on a warm afternoon. Many customers choose to follow their authentic Italian meals with Zepploi’s house-made creamy gelati, a decadent Sicilian-style favorite.
No matter where you choose to dine al fresco, Collingswood offers some exceptional patios, decks and courtyards where meal enjoyment is amplified by the beautiful backdrop of summertime. Check out any one of these restaurants today to enjoy a meal and some great scenery before summer slips by!
