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

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

        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.

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

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

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