I'm heading out with the gang on a weekday evening for wine/food/chatter. We're converging from all corners of the Twin Cities. I'm wondering if you can share your favorite restaurant with outdoor dining somewhere around downtown/U/NE. Things I don't like: trying to find a place to park; paying more for parking than for my drinks; the entire outdoor dining section is just a smoking section; outdoor music so loud we can't talk. Any ideas?
