Outdoor dining

So, hounds, where are great places to eat outdoors?
I am thinking that hidden courtyard where you can escape from the heat or a sidewalk spot for people watching or places that are humble and hearty and off the beaten track - (No grumbling about Upstairs at the Pudding, for example. And I know there are places on Boylston but if I wanted to pay $5 for a Coors Light, I would have still be at BC.) ;-b

So places everyone knows -

Barking Crab - Don't forget their sewage violations last year!
Atlantic 101 - Seafood, don't know a thing about it.
Joe's, The Marriott, and others of that ilk.

Some that are more hidden -

Cafe Pamplona - Just a coffee and dessert place near Harvard Square - A favorite of the intellectual elite at Harvard - Grab an iced espresso and try to spot the prof. who gave you a C- in Contem. French Lit.
(Everyone knows no one gets F's at Hahvard)

Union Street - Newton - Bar and restaurant with usual fare - But on non-weekend nights, fenced-in patio can be a nice place to linger.

So let's hear some more...
