The weather this past weekend was flawless: a strong summer-like sun sitting in the clear blue sky with the gentlest of breezes kissing your vitamin D-starved skin. And then there was Mount Rainier all big and white and impressive in the background. How many of you took the opportunity to sit outside on either Saturday or Sunday and enjoy a meal under the sun, taking in the glorious natural beauty that surrounds you on the Plateau?
We’re asking readers to tell us about and choose their favorite outdoor dining spot in Renton in this week's Readers' Choice Poll.
Vote for your favorite in the poll below: , Cedar River Park, Kennydale Beach Park, Liberty Park, Black River Riparian Forest, ...if you have another favorite, tell us in the comment section and we'll add it to the poll.
And click on the links above to rate each location (where provided) on its Patch Directory listing. You can also leave a review to let your neighbors know why you love it.
Editor's Note: This topic sits in a grey area compared to those we've had past in that we realize 'outdoor dining' really includes two factors: food and ambience. The choices above reflect some creativity on our part with an emphasis on ambience while including those we know have outdoor seating. However, if you have a favorite based on food and/or ambience that's not listed, please tell us in the comments and we can still add it to the poll early on.
In the event of a tie, we will break it based on the comments here and reviews on the Patch Directory listing, so please explain your choice.
The poll closes at 9 a.m. Friday, and we’ll announce the winner later that day.
Don't see your favorite place? Tell us in the comments section.
Because our poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be based on a point system in which poll results and Patch Place ratings are weighted equally. In the event of a tie, the Patch editor will determine the winner based on comments and reviews on Patch Places. For full contest details, see the attached PDF with the rules. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.
