With spring having officially sprung, diners looking to eat al fresco may want to consider Adrienne’s (25 Van Brunt Street), an Italian eatery inspired by the food of the Amalfi coast, in Broad Channel, Queens. Visitors can enjoy a waterfront view on the restaurant’s outdoor deck or enjoy sitting in the atrium, which is located indoors.

Chef Jose Gonzalez's extensive all-day menu includes arancini, tuna crudo, octopus, a little gem Caesar salad, rigatoni Bolognese, bucatini carbonara, short rib ravioli, ricotta gnocchi and a veal chop Milanese. Desserts include tiramisu, walnut budino and Aunt Coll’s cheesecake.

Weekend brunch fare includes such enticing options as cacio e pepe tots, brown butter waffle, poached eggs benedict, French onion frittata, blood orange morning buns and more.

The restaurant is also known for its selection of craft cocktails, which include a limoncello spritz, an espresso martini, a blood orange margarita, as well as a host of truly creative creations. There are also mocktails, including the phony negroni, and a fine assortment of wine and beers.
