Sonoma County’s Best Outdoor Dining Spots for Winter
In an ever-changing pandemic landscape, outdoor dining remains a constant. From Cloverdale to Petaluma, restaurants have created al fresco dining retreats, some with tents or artsy parklets. Most have equipped their patios and outdoor dining areas with heaters but, no matter the season, make sure to dress appropriately. During winter months and chilly nights, savvy diners know to bring a seat-warmer (an old coat will do) and wear cozy socks. Yes, it’s California, but we ain’t Palm Springs. Here are 35 favorite patios with heaters and a cozy ambiance for winter dining outdoors. Click through the above gallery for a peek at the patios.
