Drinking al fresco

With warmer weather comes opportunities to enjoy libations on rooftops and in the great outdoors.

Greg Horton
One of the first signs of spring every year is the increase in drinkers and diners spending beautiful afternoons and evenings on metro restaurant patios.

Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton

The big reds of the fall and winter are retired in favor of lighterbodied wines for warmer weather, and the more patio-friendly the better.

Veggie brunch

Vegetarians and vegans need not be left out of brunch for lack of options.

Greg Horton
Brunch typically evokes images of bacon, waffles, biscuits and sausage gravy, eggs Benedict, coffee and mimosas. If you are super-healthy, you might order a side of fruit. In short, brunch is rarely the healthiest meal of the week, and why should it be? It’s the weekend.
