oh this sun has given me spring fever!! What are your favorite places for lunch or dinner outside?

I like the patio at Pink Door in the market, the patio at Serafina for brunch/lunch or dinner and finding a bench around Skillet for lunch! Share you favorites!

The Pink Door. Ponti (you can have happy hour on their deck). The 35th St Bistro. Sambar!

I just wish there were more. It's so hard to get an outdoor table anywhere on a nice day.

I had lunch at Palasades and surprisingly it was very good and the deck and view were beautiful!

Ocho has outdoor now and La Carta is getting it too.

Copacabana
McCormick and Schmick's Harborside (see Eastlake Bar and Grill above)
Ray's Cafe
Duke's at Greenlake
Artemis when it opens back up

We'll have to check out Thoa's. The deck there is so nice but the restaurants have been so bad.

Chinook's has a nice patio and good oysters and also for oysters and drinks only, there's Elliot's.
Paseo over by Shilshole - they have a couple of benches, or even better, you can take a delicious pork or shrimp sammie over to the beach.
Maple Leaf Grill has a nice little deck out back.
BalMar
King's Hardware
Agua Verde
Tacos Guyamas at Greenlake

oh yeah. when it comes to fabulous decks on sunny days, the food usually takes a back seat.

Anyone remember that resto at the north end of Lake Union? It's now a catering space, and has been for quite a few years. Fantastic deck on that place ~ I have really fond memories of summer afternoons spent there drinking & eating. Right down on the water and an incredible view of downtown.

You have to have Ray's on that list. Even though the food tastes pretty corporate these days, that deck (and the one at Anthony's) are unequaled on a sunny, warm day.

I always loved the tiny outdoor area at Lush Life (Marjorie's) so cozy & romantic. Hey, has anyone been to Txori since they finished their little outdoor area?

Pink Door, absolutely. I also remember liking the deck at lunch time at Il Terrazzo Carmine. I'll think of more later cool.gif
I'm looking forward to regretting this.

Tutta Bella, Columbia City has sidewalk seating as does Lottie's. Verve has a few tables on the improved alley. Up North, Lunchbox Lab has that big picnic area, Carmelita has the sweet back deck. Joe's across from the Harvard Exit has tables outside.
And to the south, Smarty Pants is mostly outdoors, under the jet path. Pig Iron BBQ has some outside area.

I don't much like eating outside - I'm the one the yellow jackets hover.

It used to be The Meridian and then was a Brazilian place for a short while.

I also used to love sitting outside at Hiram's. I wish that place was still there.

Slim's, next door, has a large fenced-in patio with picnic tables.

My fav Burien spot, 909 Coffee & Wine, built a great deck off the back of the restaurant. No real view to speak of, but pleasant. The Tin Room, a couple doors down, has a nice deck too. For a view, hard to beat the deck at Anthony's in Des Moines.

Fidel Castro's brother spies a rich lady who's crying
Over luxury's dissapointment
So he walks over and he's trying
To sympathize with her, but thinks that he should warn her
That the Thirld World is just around the corner

It looks like the deck now belongs to the residential spaces. You can't dine on it, anyway. I had a very nice lunch there recently though the next time I went the lettuce in the summer rolls had black edges.

Oh, I forgot Elliot's, and you can have happy hour there (unlike Ray's).

I love those sidewalk tables. The building is so pretty and there are leafy trees.

There was another place right on the water that she may be talking about. I went to a reception there. Meridian was across the street in that almost mall, no? Lowell/Hunt may even have had the other space for a bit. I'm just not coming up with the resto name(s). It might have been a pier building/warehouse with uneven floors and lots of wind.


Which reminds me, Waterfront has pier deck seating.

You're absolutely right. Meridian was above the lake. What was the name of the one on the lake before it became the Brazilian place? Was it called The Lakeside? Argh.

AHHHH! That's it!! The place down on the water used to be the Lakeside. The place your thinking of (If I'm thinking of the same place) used to be, many moons ago, Arnie's Northshore.

Tighe, also southend: Salty's at Redondo.

eta: oh hey, I thought of another one. Canal Street Coffee in Fremont, outside seating, lovely spot. Sit & watch the boats go by.
I'm looking forward to regretting this.
