Just in time for the sunny weather, OpenTable is pleased to announce the 50 restaurant winners of OpenTable’s 2010 Diners’ Choice Awards for Best Outdoor Dining. Derived from nearly four million reviews submitted by OpenTable diners of nearly 11,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, this list celebrates the restaurants that provide an amazing al fresco dining experience.
Often the secret ingredient to an extraordinary meal, outdoor seating creates a more social dining experience. You’re not only dining with your companions — it can feel as though you’re dining with folks who are simply strolling down the street. Outdoor dining is also a terrific option for out-of-towners looking to soak up some scenery while taking advantage of a city’s food scene.
While there are many winners in sunny California and Florida, the list includes plenty of standouts in other states, such as Arcadia Farms in Scottsdale, Arizona, Coyote Crossing in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, Hau Tree Lanai in Honolulu, Hawaii, Ovations at Wolf Trap in Vienna, Virginia, and Red Hat on the River in Irvington, New York.
