One of the county’s best-kept dining secrets is this open terrace above Mario Batali’s Port Chester restaurant. Snag a table under the rooftop pergola to sip some wine and dine on light summer fare like caponata, pastas, and thin crust pizzas.

If you’re looking for rooftop dining with a laid back Brooklyn vibe, look no further than Fortina’s new Pizza Surf Club in Stamford. Quirky tiki drinks, Sicilian slices, and casual bar foods (with a twist, of course) make the short trip over the Connecticut border worth your time. The rooftop is open weekdays after 3 pm or weekends after 12 pm.
