Outdoor Dining Offers Breath of Fresh Air
We scouted out the best patios in the neighborhood.
Who knows whether it will be warm or cold tomorrow, but when it finally does warm up for good, here are a few area restaurants where you can enjoy dining and imbibing alfresco.
Breve Café, 10004 Kennerly Road
Order indoors from the full menu of soups, salads, sandwiches and ice cream treats and have it served to your patio table. Coffee specialty drinks are a favorite for shoppers taking a break.
Tucker’s Place South, 3939 Union Road
If it's on the inside menu, it can be ordered for patio dining; a full-service staff is on hand to serve you. If the temperature drops a bit in the evening, heaters are available warm things up a bit. The motif is tropical, including palm trees, and the landscaping provides privacy from the street and parking lot.
Show Me’s of South County, 3500 Lemay Ferry Road
A covered patio assures that you will be out of the elements during your visit. Order from their full menu, watch television and listen to music from the jukebox as you enjoy the casual ambiance of the patio.
Rich and Charlie’s Italian Restaurant, 4487 Lemay Ferry Road
Long a favorite dining spot in the neighborhood, the patio adds an extra option for diners. The outdoor patio is always well staffed and offers a full menu for diners.
Qdoba Mexican Grill, 90 South County Center Way
Nosh on some Mexican specialties as you watch the busy stream of shoppers go by the patio. The south-of-the-border atmosphere lends an added dimension to your casual, outdoor meal.
