western suburbs - outdoor patio dining/drinking??

hi all,

nice weather permitting, i'm organising a snacking happy hour with my colleagues for friday, and we want to go somewhere with an outdoor deck to bask in the spring twilight. must-haves are fabulous & creative appetizers. microbrews a plus. we are looking for a location somewhere in the KoP / wayne / paoli triangle. any ideas?

  1. 333 Belrose in Radnor is one - pretty upscale.
    The Boathouse in malvern is another - they have a good beer selection

    Its funny you bring this up though - I was thinking the exact thing last Friday when it was beautiful out - and I was lamenting of the LACK of outdoor bar venues in the area - which is why i came up with the paltry list above.

      I don't know what went wrong, but my post didn't get on.
      I agreed with the previous poster about 333 Belrose Lane in Radnor. They have lovely outdoor dining but it is very popular. You really have to make your reservation early.
      Also, if it isn't too far, Roux 3 on Route 3 in Edgemont has a really upscale, New York looking place with pretty outdoors and eclectic menu.

    2. What aboutT aquet in Wayne, it is always fun to eat on their porch-
      not sure about the microbrews, though

      1. great hotel nearby with great deck and some events throughout the summer. The Desmond.

        1. nectar in berwyn has nice outdoor seating.
