Outdoor Eating?

I'm looking for recommendations for a restaurant or bar with a nice outdoor eating (garden or patio) area for a friend's birthday. There will be about 8 of us on a week night. Anywhere in Cambridge, Boston, or Somerville would be ideal. We're looking for a little oasis (like Oleana's patio but not as expensive) in the city as opposed to sitting on a sidewalk next to traffic.
Thanks!

  1. How about the garden at Casa Romero in the Back Bay?

    1. B & G has that little patio in the back.

      1. There's an article in today's Calendar on outdoor dining, haven't read it yet. MC SlimJB gave a list of places that I saved but who knows where I stuck it.

        1. Do you want to people watch or are you looking for subtle outdoor surroundings?
          The article in the Globe Calendar appears well researched and is worth a look.
          For me the choice is easy, Armani Cafe for great food, service and people watching; Dante for subtle outdoor, great food and people watching.

          1. Pardon:
            Armani Cafe for great food, service and people watching; Dante for subtle outdoor, great food and great service.
