Is it summer yet?

If there's anything I love more than sitting in the pretty dining room or the rockin bar at The Pink Door, it's hangin' on the patio. 

The Door's kicking off its al fresco dining season and celebrates the installation of a slick new awning with a new cocktail, the aptly named "I've Got You Covered." It's a mix of light and dark rums, almond rosewater, fresh lemon juice garnished with brandy-soaked cherries. I'll drink to that!

Some new seasonal items have sprouted on the menu, too, including a lamb shank done osso bucco-style, a beefed-up cheese plate and the ultimate green salad featuring bibb lettuce, fava beans, asparagus, pistachios and tarragon dressing.

Anybody care to join me on the deck? Or name your favorite place to dine outside...

Yes! I'd love to. I want a salad and a fruity drink with a paper umbrella in it. And you, of course, sitting beside me. Regina

Hi Leslie,
You are a part of my latest blog entry (sorry, but you KNOW it's every restaurateur's wish to be able to respond to the critic). You inspired a discussion about bread. I know your vote, but feel free to join in. www.shesmoke.blogspot.com.
Best, Julie
