Dining alfresco across America in these pandemic times.
Now’s the time to support your neighborhood restaurants.

Bertrand Hug's Mr. A's Restaurant atop Bankers Hill in San Diego offers the best high rise views of downtown San Diego. Period.  And, the cuisine is first rate (French/Continental with some American surprises on the menu.
Chef/owner Daniel Boulud opened ten tables last month at his namesake restaurant on East 65th in New York City.  Chef has one Michellin star already and maybe he’ll get another for alfresco creativity.
Yes, Paris has its famed Le Dome but not to be outdone San Francisco restaurant Hashiri has created three domes to add safe environment from Covid-19 and rude street people.

 RPM Seafood along the Chicago River is open for outdoor dining.
Check its website for an interesting concept in outdoor dining and two-hour time limit with a $50 advance reservation via Tock. Click here.  

Denim & Pearl Restaurant, Warrenton, VA.
Build it and they will come. Or so hoped owners of Red Arrow Diner in Manchester NH.  In any event they were ready for business when the state lifted dining restrictions outdoors.
Close streets not restaurants.  Tampa has closed a stretch of 7th Avenue in Ybor City neighborhood allowing restaurants to setup tables outside.  It’s working.
City of San Diego allows outdoor dining along sections of popular India Street in the Little Italy District.
Speaking of alfresco.  Bryanne Sturch’s long line of customers came as a big surprise to this 8 year old when the Milwaukee Iron motorcycle club happened to see her lemonade stand.  The entire bike club pulled over and stood in line for the refreshing lemonade.  The back story is a year earlier there was an accident near the little girl’s house involving members of the motorcycle club.  Nurse Daryn Sturch, Bryanne’s mom, is credit with aiding several of the seriously hurt bikers when they needed it most. There were hugs all around.  And, Bryanne reportedly sold out of lemonade.  And, now understands there’s really nothing to this lemonade business (with the right connections, girl).
