You gave us five of your top Bergen County picks for our DVlicious "Best Outdoor Dining" contest, each of which is being highlighted this week. Read below for a brief profile, then vote.

Why It's Outdoor Worthy: The view! It doesn't get much better than seeing the twinkling lights of Manhattan and the expansive GW Bridge from a breezy perch by the river. Day or night, the postcard perfect scenery looks like something out of Woody Allen movie. Add to that live music every Friday and Saturday at the piano bar, fine French cuisine and attentive service and you'll be in outdoor dining heaven.
