Are you desperate for a semi-normal weekend? It's tough enough during non-apocolyptic times to grab a table at one of New York's cooler restaurants. Now, with places only able to seat as many people as they can socially distanced space on the sidewalk and in the street? It's game on. Whether it's brunch, dinner, or an aperitivo session, chances are you're going to be waiting for more than a hot second to grab a seat. But these ten hot spots? They are more than worth the wait.

Remember - patience is a virtue!
