unpretentious good eats in a garden type setting

Any recommendations for good low key, great food eats in perhaps a garden room (downtown--preferably)?? Thanks so-o- much.

  1. August - check the menu. It varies, and I don't always find the gamey options appealing. The back garden is great, though. Excellent brunch, too.

      crispo on 14th street is really good food and a good atmosphere. has a nice garden area in the back, although im not positive you can guarantee that when you make your reservation. worth a try though.

      also i havent been in a long time but i remember the restaurant gnocco having a nice garden area. and food was good and not expensive. think it may be cash only.

        It's been a few years since I visited Gnocco, but it was nice in the garden on an Easter Day!

    2. Mermaid Inn has a nice garden, but you may have to wait!

      1. I Coppi has a garden. Italian. Good food.

        That tapas place, 1492? on Clinton has a nice garden.. Haven't been there in a long time so can't comment on food. It seemed a little pricey the last time I was there.

        1. Cafe Asean is real tasty and it has a lovely garden in the back.
