Outdoors in Oakland

Anyone got bright ideas for bright and chow-worthy dining in Oakland that takes advantage of these gorgeous warm spring evenings?

    Chez Simone? Not sure about dinner hours, but it's the perfect weekend
    lunch on one of the precarious balcony tables.

      Pizzaiolo has a beautiful back patio and you can play bocce ball, too!

        Barclay's is nice, but can be tough to get a table outside when it is nice.

          Dona Tomas (on Telegraph at 51st) has a great outdoor patio. A Cote also has a nice back patio, which is covered when the weather is bad, and uncovered when it's nice.

            La Note and Somerset both have nice patio seating. Cesar and Dopo on Piedmont Avenue both have limited streetside seats.
