After the winter we’ve had it is no secret that us locals are focused on finding any excuse to be outside in the sun, and going out to eat is no exception. The last thing we want to do on our days off is spend a 75 degree day indoors, when we could be on a deck enjoying a beverage and getting a nice tan. Though L/A is no Portland when it comes to options for outside seating, there are a few spots that take care of exactly what we’re looking for with both comfortable seating and scenic views. Below we have listed our top spots with outdoor seating in the area. We hope that you can head on over soon to catch some rays and enjoy some great food as well!
