Great Restaurants with Great Patios Jun 10, 2004 04:33 PM

Going out Saturday night for a friends B-day with 7 others. Price and cuisine not that important, but looking for great food and a graet patio. Was able to get Xacutti but not until 9:30 and some in the group felt it was too late. Please help.

    Friscos Brasserie (formerly Al Friscos) on John? The new menu is supposed to be pretty decent and the patio there has always been a delight. Especially on warm, busy Saturday nights.

      Friscos has a great patio (John/Richmond)
      Great food & wine, fairly large patio

        Here are some other options with great patios and good to great food:

        On Harbord Street
        Boulevard Cafe (still one of my favourite patios in the city and great, consistent food)
        Kensington Kitchen

        On College Street
        Teatro (in answer to recent posts, I was there a couple of times last year - the patio is good and the food is pretty good but not great)

        On Queen Street East
        The Drake
