BROOKLYN, NY — When Habana Outpost returned to Fort Greene this summer after a pandemic hiatus, crowds of Brooklynites flocked to the Cuban restaurant’s courtyard, cementing it — once again — as an outdoor dining destination.
Now, the Cuban restaurant — best known for its large courtyard and beloved Cubano sandwich — is officially recognized as one of Brooklyn’s best outdoor restaurants, according to reviewers.
The restaurant was included in an Eater’s List of 16 Best Places to Dine Alfresco in Brooklynupdated this week as the city enters the throes of summer.
Eater said the return of Habana Outpost to the corner of Fulton Street and South Portland Avenue marks the restoration of “the outdoor drinking order in Fort Greene.”
In addition to a menu of sandwiches and grilled corn, the restaurant is known for serving “buckets of beer and pitchers of colorful frozen cocktails,” as Eater puts it.
You can eat and drink on the sidewalk, reviewers noted, but most of the outdoor seating is in a side yard with lights and awnings in case of rain.
Open from noon to midnight Wednesday through Monday at 757 Fulton Street, Habana Outpost will be open all summer — possibly extending through September or after depending on the weather, the operations manager told Patch earlier this summer.
