Anyone Want to Give a Shout-Out to Their Favorite Patio?

In light of Mother Nature’s recent brutality, it’s no wonder that everyone we know is using these recent cooler days as an excuse to run to their favorite outdoor patio. I, myself, spent a good 30 minutes this morning in the backyard throwing the tennis ball with the new dog, soaking up the breezy 72 degree air, and making plans for which patios I’m going to hit throughout this noticeably cooler (and shorter) week. I’m liking the idea of Ginger Man, and the outdoor tables at NorthPark make me very happy for a little post-movie chit-chat.  Then, of course, there’s BarBelmont, the upstairs and downstairs patios at Alma, the outdoor tables at The Old Monk, etc, etc. I could go on for weeks.

How about you? When the breeze kicks up and lunchtime, happy hour, or dinnertime calls, where would your friends be most likely to find you?

  1. Saint Ann Restaurant has a very nice, and very large, patio. Also Dallas Chop House is nice especially on Friday after work.

  2. shameless self promotion: garden cafe. attempt at looking less selfish: another for amsterdam. more for the place and people though, rather than just a great patio.

  3. We like the Taco Diner at the Shops at Legacy in Plano, they have both nice Mojitos as well as Margaritas.

  4. Saint Ann boasts the largest garden patio in Dallas and makes some really yummy cocktails and appetizers. State and Allen is great for laid-back, dog-friendly folks who want a great meal (and, half-price wine on wednesday!). The upstairs patio at Marquis Grill has a fantastic view of Highland Park Village and top-notch cocktails, but seating is limited.
