PATIO DININGCould it be safe to say outdoor patios are officially open?  

If your ideal summer evening consists of sitting under the stars with a chilled bottle of Sancerre, Tabree  (423 Elmwood Ave, Buffalo, 716.844.8477) has officially opened its clandestine veranda to Francophiles. The French bistro’s kitchen is also featuring a new spring/summer menu.

La Tee Dah (206 Allen, Buffalo, 716.881.4500) is now accepting reservations for tables in their European beer garden (weather permitting, of course). Trattoria Aroma (311 Bryant St., Buffalo, 716.881.7592) has also opened its porch although seating is available on a ‘first come, first serve basis.’ If you’re looking for an artistic nature-oriented environment, Muse (Albright Knox Art Gallery, 1285 Elmwood Ave, Buffalo, 716.270.8223) is serving cocktails & light fare in the Knox Gallery’s outdoor courtyard.

The outdoor patio at Coles (1104 Elmwood Ave., Buffalo, 716.886.1449) is now serving lunch & dinner as is the Martini-clad patio at Cecelia’s (716 Elmwood Ave, 716.883.8066).

If you’re in the mood for southern comfort food, check out the casual patio scene at Fat Bob’s Smokehouse (41 Virginia Place, Buffalo, 716.887.2971)Mother’s (33 Virginia Place, Buffalo, 716.882.2989) spacious patio is now open for happy hour and late-night dining as is the outdoor back patio at Encore (492 Pearl Street, Buffalo, 716.931.5001).  Shanghai Red’s (2 Templeton Ter, Buffalo, 716.852.7337) expansive terrace is having their grand  opening Memorial Day weekend.  31 Club (31 N. Johnson Parkway, Buffalo, 716.331.3232) also plans on serving supper on the private porch of the brownstone sometime in mid-June…

Matriculating to the suburbs, the secluded side-patio at Siena (4516 Main Street, Snyder, 716.839.3108), the porch at Sole (5110 Main St., Wmsvl, 716.362.0356), and the sidewalk tables at Le Metro (5110 Main St., Wmsvl, 716.631.2725) are all open for lunch & dinner.
