(for another outdoor dining list click here)
It's that time of year again. Time to start thinking about getting out and enjoying a meal out in the sunshine (if it EVER decides to stick around!). One of my favorite things about summer in Oregon is that the weather is usually just about perfect for outdoor dining: not too much humidity, not too many bugs, warm enough to be enjoyable.
I've noticed a few more patios and outdoor areas have been added around Salem since the no smoking law went into affect. Some of those end up being too smoky for my enjoyment, but others are very nice. Here's a list of some of my favorite Salem patio dining - other than my own at home, of course! :)
Straight from New York Pizza - Owens St.
Best Little Roadhouse - the bar patio, 21+
McGrath's - both locations
La Margarita Express
Are there any new outdoor dining options around the area that I've missed or haven't tried? I'm sure there are plenty. Feel free to add them in the comments!
