Sure, Morandi, La Esquina, Landmarc, Spring Street Natural, Mermaid Inn, and Pastis were still sitting it out, but other restaurants up and down the avenue were finally dragging out their sidewalk tables this past weekend. Most of them were sparsely populated, but the café outside of Zum Schneider, for one, was full up (chalk it up to Teutonic perseverance). Here’s part one of a list of other downtown establishments that we noticed were already offering sidewalk seats.
