There's an Old World charm to the courtyard at SHAUN'S. Snugly enclosed by aged brick walls and climbing vines, the 50-seat patio is a fitting backdrop for chef Shaun Doty's classy, Southern-meets-Mediterranean cuisine. It's also a great place to delve into the restaurant's clever cocktail menu while whittling away a lazy Sunday afternoon (or hazy weekend night). The vibe is more relaxed than in the restaurant proper, evoking a slow, European pace more common to the piazzas of Rome. Patrons trend toward the young and hip, and the menu toward the chic but unfussy – the chicken-liver fettuccine and the sockeye salmon with Anson Mills grits are both standouts. The patio experience is complete when punctuated on the half hour by the clanging church bell at the 19th-century sanctuary next door, just like in the old country. less...

There’s nothing on Earth like a majestic Southern river, and no place in the city to eat overlooking one as beautiful as the patio at CANOE. The view of the Chattahoochee is breathtaking, as are the incredible gardens that surround the restaurant. Sometimes in a big city it’s easy to forget the great outdoors, but Canoe gives us a reason to reconnect with nature. less...

The dining room at WAHOO is so adorably cozy that you may be tempted to take a table inside. But press on through the French doors to the enchanted garden patio out back. Paved with flagstones and bordered with hanging vines and flowering bushes, Wahoo’s outdoor dining area is nothing short of divine. Heavy wooden tables nestled underneath a trellis accommodate families and groups. Farther out, the flagstones turn to gravel and the tables turn to wrought iron; a grassy area to one side is perfect for little ones who can’t sit still. A misting system keeps the patio cool and inviting even in the muggy depths of summer. less...

Thank God someone finally did something interesting with the futuristic Trust Company bank branch that’s been decaying on Monroe for a decade. Local restaurateur Bob Amick has re-imagined the flying saucer-like building as chic pizzeria PIEBAR. The adjoining patio is particularly eye-catching. The building’s original drive-thru “pods” are now rooftop dining, covered by a giant white circus tent. At night, blue and purple lights illuminate the tent, creating an ethereal and undeniably glamorous vibe.
2160 Monroe Drive. 404-815-1605. www.piebar.com.
