Our friends at Little Green Pickle PR sent a memo about their restaurant clients who feature patio and outdoor seating. Ever in search of a generative device or crowdsourcing trotline, I took the bait, and decided to seed what I hope will be a well-populated list of outdoor eateries in which to enjoy the precious month(s) of not-rain.

From their client list: Bar Avignon, The Bent Brick, Besaw’s, Departure, Smallwares.

From the frazzled bladder of my addled brain: Uyghur Burger (SE 398th and Kinbee), Firehouse.

I’m looking for more than just places which run some picnic tables along the sidewalk; which eateries do you enjoy that have dedicated, comfortable outdoor seating that especially shines in the summertime?
