I was chatting with a bar owner who wants to trump up daytime food sales and I suggested they do some grilling outside, as they are located next to a busy intersection and people might notice/smell.
She didn't think it was legal to do so due to fire danger. And that might very well be the case in some metro cities. But it got me wondering... are there local places where chow is being cooked outside? Everyone loves a BBQ, right?
The Monestary has outdoor grills, but maybe since cutomers prepare their fare, it's technically not their kitchen?
There's a Mexican patio place that grills outside from time to time, but only on special occasions. And it's not their whole menu, but just special items such as tacos.
I can understand it being restricted by laws and also a logistical challenge, but can you think of other places that manage to cook some things outside?
