Patio Pleasures: The List's List of Outdoor Settings (2024 Edition)

Buzz

The moment we get that first 75 degree day it’s al fresco dining for us. Fortunately, most restaurants in the DMV agree. Find us soaking in our much needed vitamin D (or, sometimes, tucked under an umbrella) on our favorite patios all season long. Look here, there, and everywhere for all the new outdoor settings - and not just your tried & true spots - many of the new restaurants and bars have outdoor options as well. And, if you looking for a place with a view, you know we got you, check out our rooftop listing in our Up On The Roof round up:
