Now that the weather has warmed up there are a lot of outdoor dining options around Washtenaw County. 89.1 WEMU's Lisa Barry and Jessica Webster talk about just some of the many places to enjoy a meal or a beverage outside a local restaurant.


Local food expert and writer, and host of "The In Crowd" heard every Sunday afternoon on WEMU, Jessica Webster and Lisa Barry talk about some of the places where outdoor dining is available around the Ann Arbor area.  Jessica highlights some of the spots which are away from busy streets and traffic, including Ricewood BBQ food truck behind Morgan and York.

Whether it's for a great deli sandwich from the deli or coffee and dessert from The Next Door Cafe, sitting outside at Zingerman's near Kerrytown in Ann Arbor is a popular spot.

Dominick's in Ann Arbor has been a local favorite for decades.  You can sit on the front porch or the back patio and enjoy sangria and pizza, among other food and drink options.
