It’s finally summer. Dining al fresco is on everyone’s list. A rooftop or patio sounds divine!

  • People’s Park – Enjoy casual cuisine on their rooftop overlooking the Historic downtown and beyond.
  • La Estacion – Indulge in some Mexican fare on their patio, but if the train car entices you more, opt to feast there instead.
