catLast week we offered some tips on taking your dog out in public. This week we want to offer a few places in New York City that you might want to take your best friend when you’re in the mood for a bite – to eat, that is!

More and more businesses, in NYC and beyond, are recognizing the fact that our dogs (and other pets, too) are family. As a result, there are a number of NYC dog-friendly establishments that open their patios and outdoor eating areas to those of us who want to bring our best buddy along.

Here are a couple dog-friendly places you and your buddy are sure to love.

The Barking Dog Restaurant
1678 Third Ave at 94th St.

They say they’re “The best dog friendly restaurant on the Upper East Side of New York City.” They cater to the whole family, including the dog! So, while you’re enjoying a good meal, your dog can socialize with the canine crowd around the doggy fountain.

Fetch Bar and Grill
1649 Third Ave.

Not only does Fetch Bar & Grill have some awesome food, but they also have a wall papered with pictures of dogs looking for a new, forever home. They’re hoping you’ll have a great time while you’re there, but fall in love with one of the furry little guys looking for a new home.
