Certain cuisines are meant to be consumed alfresco. Southern food is one of them. Thankfully, the owners of this 10-month-old Platt Park low-country eatery created nearly as much dining space outdoors as they did indoors when they altered this 126-year-old home. Not only can diners enjoy their chicken and waffles on the first-level patio, but they can also share a plate of shrimp and grits on the rooftop, which, with a slight bump in humidity, could very well be considered a genuine veranda.
Our readers' fave spot to eat outdoors is no surprise to us: Linger's rooftop patio calls to us, too, with great views of the city's skyline, plenty of sun, beautiful people, innovative cocktails, and creative shared plates.
