Outdoor dining is one of life’s greatest simple pleasures, whether it’s pain au chocolat at a sidewalk cafe in Paris, ribs and brisket at a Deep South barbecue, or a clambake on the coast of Maine.
Midsummer’s long, sunny days and balmy evenings invite dining alfresco, especially in a scenic place. The occasion makes for memories, whether it’s dinner and cocktails at an elegant riverfront restaurant or a picnic for two in the park.
And what better way is there to enjoy time spent at home, alone or in the company of family and friends, than in a dedicated dining space outdoors?
From enclosed garden courtyards to poolside pavilions and grand waterfront terraces, the homes in this Luxury Defined collection showcase a wide variety of open-air options for alfresco dining in style.
