Your ideal vision for spending a Saturday outside may not include sitting on a patio stuck between two parking decks in Midtown, but somehow, Cypress Street makes it work. There aren’t a lot of good outdoor options in the area, which makes this neighborhood spot, with its patio and solid burger, a winner for a work lunch or Happy Hour.
