Other nosheries may have patios and outdoor seating with better views of the harbor or the city, but you wouldn’t want to be sitting there when it starts to get a little chilly outside. Arcos’ intimate, brick-lined and -walled back patio, which is covered enough to provide a modest shelter from the elements, remains cozy during the late fall and almost-spring months when you wouldn’t be caught dead sitting streetside in Mount Vernon. It could be a brisk March weekend evening and there you are at Arcos, seated comfortably out back in a light jacket, and enjoying a cerveza, a plate of brochetas de vegetales, and, because nobody else wants to be back there, a cigarette.
