A new survey by OpenTable indicates 43 per cent of Ontario residents plan to dine outdoors as far into the fall as possible this year.
OpenTable has also put together its first fall list of the 100 Best Restaurants for Outdoor Dining and three local eateries are on it.
Kitchener's Graffiti Market, Sole Restaurant in Waterloo, Waterloo's The Bauer Kitchen and Puddicombe House in New Hamburg all received mentions.
"Diners are determined to enjoy every last moment of the season, and restaurants are going above and beyond to make it happen." explained Matt Davis, District Director of OpenTable Canada.
The list was generated by diner reviews collected between June 1, 2020 to May 31, 2021.
