Now that Spring has finally decided to make an appearance in New England, I'm trying to figure out how I can be outside as much as possible. Everybody's gotta eat, and I prefer to dine al fresco, if I can help it.

Here's a list of hot spots on the SouthCoast with outdoor seating. They're either already open, or plan to open by Memorial Day weekend. Enjoy a meal outdoors, weather permitting!

If we missed any other local spots with outdoor seating, please let us know.
