Seattle’s Best Outdoor Dining Spots for Any Weather

As the days get shorter and chill creeps into the air, summer’s finally truly over, but that doesn’t mean we’re ready to huddle inside to wait for June to come back around. Check out these three spots to eat outdoors with some shelter from the elements.

Giddy Up Burgers

The partially glassed-in patio retains heat in cold winter with greenhouse warmth in the airy, modern space with variegated raw wood beams creating a forest-y feel. Reserve the bright venue for a special event, and there’s no need to stress about the weather. The burgers are top-notch, made from house-ground, hormone-free beef, best enjoyed with a cold microbrew while you soak up some rays on the patio picnic benches.

You can find Giddy Up Burgers at 4600 Leary Way NW.

The covered patio at Revel is all done up in twinkle lights over the partially covered outdoor tables, and you can huddle around the flickering fire pit while you enjoy a cocktail after your meal. The seasonally rotating menu offers a range of Asian Fusion-style dishes with a Korean emphasis adding another delicious feather in Seattle’s cuisine cap. Enjoy Revel’s weekend brunch outside for the last sunny mornings of the season.

You can find Revel at 403 N 36th St.

Tamarind Tree takes advantage of its patio space year round with heat lamps, plus an awning and umbrellas for rainy days. Enjoy the spicy authentic cuisine beloved by the local Vietnamese community and take a breath of fresh air sitting amongst the greenery tucked away in the heart of the International District. If the day is just too chilly, snuggle up inside by the open fire pits in the romantic dining room.

You can find Tamarind Tree at 1036 S Jackson St.
