It always sounds so exciting: Dining al fresco. Like you're planning on doing something daring, like dining naked. Or stealing away to your favorite Italian restaurant alone, dressed in nothing but a gamurra and camicia Botticelli-style. Of course, it really means that you're just planning to eat outside, a pretty pedestrian endeavor. But if you want to put a twist on the old outdoor dining angle, these local spots actually make al fresco as exciting as it sounds.
