California Dines Al Fresco

Dining outdoors is one of summer’s greatest pleasures so as we look forward to Memorial Day Weekend OpenTable reveals the Top 100 Outdoor Dining spots in the country. Spoiler: California dominates the list, claiming 42 of the 100 total spots. Restaurants that stretch up and down the coast from the Southern cities of San Diego and Long Beach all the way up North towards Palo Alto.

The list is based on the combined opinions of more than 5 million reviews, submitted by verified OpenTable users for more than 15,000 restaurants in all 50 states. That’s a lot of opinion to take into consideration

So if you find yourself in any of these cities this summer, when in Rome… dine al fresco.
