Hidden Gem in Downtown Plymouth

n2Nico & Vali Italian Eatery  is located on Wing Street in downtown Plymouth. Owners Paul and Silvia DePalma, have done a fantastic job designing their building with both indoor and outdoor seating.

Patio Season in Full Force in Mid Michigan

I love this time of year, the weather is perfect for eating and drinking on patios at restaurants all over Detroit. Here is a list of a few that you may not know about. I love eating at restaurants in Detroit that offer outdoor dining.

E.G. Nick’s Plymouth – My favorite patios in Plymouth, unlike a lot of the outdoor dining in Plymouth. At E.G. Nick’s you won’t get a mouthful of exhaust with every bite.

Bar None Brighton – This out of the way Brighton restaurant has fantastic food and a nice patio where you can relax and enjoy a very well prepared meal.

Downtown Main Brighton– Right in the heart of Downtown Bright, here you can relax and enjoy music on the patio. The thing I like about here is, the patio is not close to the road and you can still enjoy the weather, music and of course a great martini.

The Hills Bar & Grille Rochester Hills – 3 different outdoor dining area at this Rochester Hills restaurant.

Pizzeria Biga – Southfield – Pizza outdoors, need I say more?

Salvatpore Scallopini – Southfield – With the recently re-done garden and patio area, a very nice place to grab some lunch or dinner.

Doc’s Sports Retreat – Livonia If you like sports and watching sports eating and drinking a few ice cold beverages outdoors this would be a good spot to try.

RJ’s American Grill – Farmington Hills This Farmington Hills restaurant has a very nice outdoor dining area well away from Northwestern Highway.

Tavern on the Main – Clawson – If there is a better restaurant in Clawson to eat outdoors I haven’t found it.

Ginopolis BBQ Smokehouse – Located at 12 Mile rd & Middlebelt, this Farmington Hills restaurant serves up some pretty good barbeque in a nice relaxed outdoor setting.
