Every summer, I go through this- searching deep into my brain for all of the restaurants w/ great outdoor patios/seating. Somewhere in Pasadena, Eagle Rock, Silverlake, Los Feliz or Downtown would be cool.
Villa Sorriso is out, Cafe Pino is out as well (have heard bad things about the food/service). Nothing overly $$$.
Thanks. I promise to save this on my computer so I won't ask again next year!!
