Birthday dinner- Small Group.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a locally ownes, tasty, mid-priced, casual or semi-casual restaurant that can accomodate a small group? (6-8 adults).

I am interested in all kinds of cuisines, but we will have a vegetarian among us so that needs to be taken into consideration. I would also love for us to be able to eat outdoors on a patio, but it isn't a requirement. A restaurant that is BYOB or has a nice drink menu would be a plus.

Thank you ahead of time for any recommendations that you may have!

  1. I recently had dinner on the patio at Mooshine and it was very nice, with a variety of American/southwestern dishes And you can even bring your dog, leashed, on one patio. (My terrier was the lone dog that night.) Lucy's on the lake, also Texan/Southwestern, is also good--but no dogs are allowed as far as I know. Fino Mediteranian/Spanish is also very eclectic with a great patio, no dogs.

    1. You might also try Enoteca Vespaio (small patio, locally owned, and tasty food, but no reso's so you might have to show a little early).
