Outside Seating Round-Up

Walked by Zeitgeist last night and it was a nightmare to get in- there was quite a long line. Friend mentioned that she wanted a blog post that listed all of the nice outside eating areas, so here you go:

* Medjool on Mission. Huge roof deck with capacity for crowds. Tiny little elevator, but that’s the only real drawback.

* El Rio, of course, huge deck

* The Ramp- huge back deck with open area

* Personal favorite: Fish! in Sausalito, lots of deck and locally fished seafood.

* Almost all of the Ferry Building restaurants have outdoor eating

* Epic Roasthouse & Waterbar on Embarcadero

* Palomino & Gordon Biersch have outside areas

* The Waterfront on Embarcadero has a wind-protected open area

* Pier 23 has a tarp enclosed back area (they may open it once in a while)

* Most North Beach places have outside sidewalk seating.

* Metro Hotel on Divisadero near Haight has a beautiful back garden.

    I think EVERYONE is going to be at all those places!

    Also, many places have little outdoor areas in the back. The Blackthorn on Irving has a small area in the back thats outdoors, and Park Chow has a rooftop dining area too. Finnegan’s Wake in Cole Valley also has a small outdoor seating area, and Cafe Reverie, just down the street has a whole back yard!

    AWWWWW!!! El RIO!!! I have to say I have fond memories of El Rio, though I really must avoid $1 drink night like the plague.

    Ferry building will be really nice this weekend. They may even get a nice breeze off the water there this eve.

    A great choice tonight, this weekend would be the Beach/Park Chalet at the end of lincoln on the great highway.
