Have a somewhat specific request and hoping to find some help here :)
On Thursday night, will be having dinner at 7pm with my gf and her sister+fiance.
At 530pm, my gf and I will meet up with an old friend who will bring some sparkling "juice" and light light snack for a small picnic catch up.
I'd like to see the friend outside somewhere nice that is also close to a restaurant for the 7pm dinner.
So, anyone have ideas for a fun, cheap place (ideally sub $25/30 per pax) that is near a nice areas to sit outside? preference for either California typical cuisine or mexican but am indeed open.
