Metrowest Outdoor Dining

Friday night is approaching..... where can we go in the metrowest area for dinner (preferably with yummy cocktails). If only Orinoco would open a new place with a huge patio in ...Needham? Natick?

  1. John Stones in Ashland has a great patio - also Owen O'Leary's on Rte 9 in Southboro -

    1. Sel de la Terre at the Natick Collection, though not much of a view.

        tiny taqueria mexico in waltham has very good food, little outdoor patio.

      2. Allora Ristorante in Marlborough. They have an outdoor patio overlooking Lake Williams, and excellent Mediterranean fare at moderate prices.

          Moderate? Looks like Boston prices to me....Lots of Entrees breaking $30...

            They also have several dishes in the teens, so you can get away with not spending a lot (as I've done there more than once).

        2. AKA Bistro in Lincoln.

            I was there this week. Had a very nice meal, three of us had the small omakase, then split a couple of french entrees, nice way to go.
            I didn't notice any outdoor seating, though.

          2. Singh's in Wellesley has a really nice patio.
