Patios Are Back

The Patio at SumoMaya

Outdoors is a part of our life here — even at 100 degrees or higher. We discovered some of the best patio midday dining that will take us through the heat.


This new campus hot spot has several outdoor areas that are going to work for any weather — fully covered or open and hot. The lunch menu will work, too, for patrons no matter where they decide to settle.

The Vig Uptown

It feels like being outside despite the interior wall surrounding the indoor/outdoor space that includes many tables, games and a nice seating area with fireplace. The hip vibe of this hot spot over lunch and its many options make this a top pick.

SumoMaya Mexican-Asian Kitchen

Chic and set up for exposing patrons to the elements, SumoMaya is a guaranteed hot spot for lunch. Its patio is covered and cool — the hip kind of cool, and temperature cool as well. The Mexican-inspired menu will entice.
