all this lovely weather makes me want to grab a nice cold beer, a tasty plate of grub and dine outside. dining al fresco at home is nice, but out at a restaurant where someone else has cooked the meal (and will be doing the dishes) is even more appealing!
if you live in chico and would like to sit out on a patio while you eat a tasty meal that someone else has prepared, here are a few places that have a great patio.
grab that beer and get out there!
grilla bites has a great outdoor dining area with lots of tables and a cooling and pretty water fountain.
sol mexican grill is a new kid in town. its located in the old cafe ricci building (on the corner of esplanade + eaton) and is run by the same folks that churn out tasty + super affordable eats at la cocina economica. they have a shady patio and will soon be expanding their menu to include dinner + drinks as soon as they get their liquor license.
this weekend daniel and i will be checking out annie’s asian grill‘s patio (pic above). i’ve only been there once and daniel has never been so it should be a good time and great weather for it.

red tavern has a charming outdoor area complete with lots of shade, a fire pit and bocce ball court. add to that the tasty cocktails and yummy food and i’d say thats a great place to while away a summery friday or saturday night.
tres hombres has finally reopened with their much anticipated new sidewalk dining, which i had the pleasure of enjoying a few weeks ago with kasey and melody.
these are just the spaces that i know about that have patio dining, please let me know if i forgot any!
