As a native Angeleno, I’m a sucker for the sunshine. Given the opportunity, I’ll almost always dine outdoors — even on those borderline days where it might result in catching a chill. Thankfully SoCal summer has finally arrived, opening up the opportunity for prime patio lounging.

(I have to say I was quite flattered by the headline they gave the story!) Read on to see where the likes of Jonathan Gold, Lesley Bargar Suter, Dana Goodyear, and I like to dine al fresco.
