When warmer weather finally sneaks into the City of Brotherly Love, it's nice to be able to stay outside and enjoy it. Philadelphia has many great venues where outside seating is available, and its restaurants are no exception. Whether you're looking for a great French dining experience such as Bistrot La Minette in Queen Village, or a more relaxed and interesting venue such as Jack's Firehouse in Fairmount, the city's got plenty of offerings. Cozy up to a table for two, gather the family at a larger setting where all can enjoy, or simply sit by yourself, enjoy a cold beverage and watch the people walking by. From patios to courtyards to sidewalk seating to awning-covered sections tucked in flower-decorated nooks, the city does what it can to take advantage of the warm weather while it can. Grab a quick bite for lunch, take the time to linger over brunch or take that special someone out for a special dinner, all while happily enjoying the crisp air and gentle breeze. Many times a meal eaten outdoors on a beautiful day can be an incredibly satisfying and uplifting experience, whether it be morning, noon or night. Even a quick cocktail hour outside may reward you and your party many times over. So step outside and enjoy.
