Spring has sprung, and it’s officially time to hit the deck and dine outdoors at one of JEZ’s favorite eateries.

Great for groups. At Fritti, diners can nibble on Neapolitan-style pizzas in a re-fashioned garage, enjoying the fresh spring air in Inman Park. 309 North Highland Ave.,   Abattoir With seating for up to 36 guests, the patio at Abattoir is the best spot to nosh on favorites from the restaurant’s innovative “whole animal” menu in the chic Westside. 1170 Howell Mill Road,   MARKET Buckhead See and be seen at MARKET's patio overlooking Peachtree. Go for Jean-Georges’ global cuisine, stay for the live music and people-watching. W Atlanta Buckhead Hotel, 3377 Peachtree Road,   Miller Union Miller Union’s intimate 10th Street patio provides the ultimate setting for Chef Steven Satterfield’s seasonal fare and artisanal cocktails. 999 Brady Ave.,   FLIP Burger Boutique Creative burgers, delicious sides and creamy milkshakes are best enjoyed while soaking in the Georgia sun on the mod patio at either location of FLIP. Multiple area locations in Buckhead and West Midtown,   Floatway Café Come warmer temps, Floataway Café is transformed into an outdoor café with the night sky forming a starry canopy over the courtyard. It doesn’t get much more romantic than that. 1123 Zonolite Road,   Photo Caption: Fritti’s Highland Ave. patio Photo Credit: Courtesy The Reynolds Group
