Best Place to Dine Outdoors

Pipenta | Sep 20, 2010 06:37 PM

The summer is coming to an end, and I want to spend every minute I can outside. Sadly, there aren't a lot of nice places to eat outside. I've always found this to be a serious failing of the New Haven area. You'd think, what with all this shoreline, there would be some nice places to eat by the water.

This is why I'm such a fan of River View BBQ on the Housatonic River in Seymour. The BBQ is good and the view is gorgeous. I took some photos today. (My work takes my up that way at least twice a month.) Sadly, they are closed on Mondays. And I do not know how much longer they will be open this year.

I'd love to know of other nice outdoor restaurants. If you have some favorites, please share. And if you have access to a digital camera, upload some pictures!

And, obviously, the food needs to be good.
