Columbia’s not the world’s greatest outdoor dining locale. I have to think some of it is a hangover from persnickety regulations restricting tables and chairs on sidewalks. Or the absurd awning that besmirched downtown for so many years. But it’s getting better, and here are a decent number of restaurants with a) good food, and b) good patios. Setting aside for now the usual suspects (Les Bourgeois, Flat Branch), where else will you go once it stops raining (for the love of God!) and warms up a tad?
