Patio Perfect
August, 2020 - Issue #191

Put on your best summer dress and head down to your favorite local spot with an outdoor patio - because this summer is all about that outdoor living. Here are the patios we love for every occasion.

An Extra-special Patio Dining Experience
Roomy garden patio. Pretty shade umbrellas. Crackling fire pit. Marston's Restaurant has been serving up a dreamy patio dining experience long before outdoor seating became the hot new commodity. And this coveted SCV patio just got more exciting because Chef Jim's highly-anticipated weekly specials have returned to the menu for dine-in or takeout. Wednesdays never looked so good with rosemary shrimp, cucumber salad, hummus and pine nut rice, or if you prefer the grill, order Saturday's blackened ribeye with garlic mashed potatoes, spinach and blue cheese butter. Want something to drink with that? The summer cocktail menu just got a fresh update: Templeton Old Fashioned, Hendricks Cucumber Collins, Titos Blackberry Lemonade and Raspberry Mojito. Dine on the patio or take yours to go.

Burgers and Brew with Man's Best Friend
Pups, taps, burgers and a spacious outdoor patio that overlooks the beautiful views of Bridgeport Marketplace - Rustic Burger House is the perfect place to stop and stay awhile. This locally-owned neighborhood gastropub offers award-winning craft burgers and brews served on the dog-friendly outdoor patio. Only Harris Ranch certified Angus beef patties are worthy of the inventive and crave-worthy burger creations, which include the super-popular Fig 'n Brie with house-made jam and French fromage, Everyday I'm Trufflin with black truffle seasoning and burrata cheese or the Louisiana Spicy Chicken Fried Sandwich with seasoned batter and deep-fried pepper jack cheese. Take an artisan approach to your favorite classic American dinner with Rustic Burger House - and save room for one of their loaded signature shakes.

Their expansive outdoor patio is big enough to feel safe no matter where you dine, but for an extra-intimate experience, make sure to book the private room ahead. Then feast your eyes on the innovative, surprising and downright fun Slater's 50/50 menu. Three kinds of loaded fries, wings in five flavors, flatbreads and salads, 14 mouthwatering burgers and some of the biggest, craziest milkshakes you've ever seen. Kids will love it. Mom and Dad will love it. And bacon lovers won't ever want to leave. Run - don't walk - to SCV's newest burger haven.

Happy Hour has Never been Happier
Missing happy hour something fierce? Us, too. That's why cocktails served on the Salt Creek Grille patio are restoring our faith in everything that's good and happy. For a light and fresh sunset drink, we recommend the Harvest Pear - Grey Goose La Poire Vodka, fresh lime and apple juices, simple syrup with a cinnamon sugar rim. Then stay for dinner - The Grille Chop, a double-thick cut pork chop topped with apple chutney - or take it home. Touchless virtual menus and partitions between every table create an even more safe and intimate experience that makes a night out on the town feel good again. But if those cozy nights in are still calling your name, SCG takeout was made for date nights and family time.
