Indiana Restaurant Named Best in State for Outdoor Dining

Summertime is the perfect season to enjoy a meal outdoors with family and friends. No matter what style of cuisine you are craving, there are several restaurants scattered throughout the state that offer beautiful patio seating that makes for an unforgettable summer afternoon. Recently,  LoveFood compiled a list of the best outdoor dining in each state. When it comes to Indiana, LoveFood says that the restaurant with the best outdoor dining in the state is Bluebeard in Indianapolis.

Here's what LoveFood had to say about Bluebeard:

Indianapolis is an unsung foodie city and there are plenty of great spots for patio dining. Make a beeline for Bluebeard, a hip Modern American restaurant that's housed in an old warehouse. The laid-back patio is filled with trees, blossom-filled in spring and strung with fairy lights in winter. The menu is made for sharing with small plates including shrimp toast with red curry coconut sauce and mushroom velouté.

Now, I am sure that the food here is great. I mean the Manhattan and the spaghetti look delicious. However, this isn't really what I pictured in my head when I thought about what the best outdoor dining in Indiana would look like. As you can see in the photo above, this is the building, and there's some outdoor dining in the middle there. But I can't help to think that the best outdoor dining location should be somewhere with a great view. A restaurant along the river or a lake, where you can catch a nice breeze and look out at the view in amazement.

So, no offense to Bluebeard, but I have seen much better-looking restaurants with outdoor dining in Indiana than this. Then again, all of this stuff is subjective. At the end of the day, just go where the food is good and a place you enjoy. My opinion and LoveFood's idea of the best outdoor dining might be much different than yours.
