This picture was posted on one of my friend's Facebook pages. He writes: "Houston's no-nonsense approach to crime extends to those who dare to dine with their dogs."
While New York City Health Code forbids dogs inside restaurants, there are plenty of places to sit and eat outside with the dog by your side.
Legal? It would be too much to enforce. Some restaurants even have doggy friendly entrees! This is from Shake Shack, an outdoor restaurant. There are also plenty of places to satisfy a dog's thirst.
A visit to the 79th Street Boat Basin is due soon.
