With warm weather and sunny skies fast approaching, restaurant patios are looking increasingly more inviting! Here are some of my favorite outdoor eatery spots for the new season:

Caffe Molise (pictured above): Art-filled trattoria serving Northern Italian fare & unique wines; I'd recommend the Gnocchi di Patate

Avenues Proper: Craft brewery serving elevated pub fare and brunch; try the Chicken and Waffles

Cafe Niche: American bistro specializing in area-sourced fare; the Nice breakfast is my favorite way to start a day

The Copper Onion: Locally sourced New American fare, cocktails, and brunch; you can't go wrong with the Ballard Farm Griddled Pork Chop

Stoneground Kitchen: Rustic Italian eatery serving pastas & thin-crust pizzas; the Goat Cheese Caramelle is delightful

Bon appetit!!!
