Dine Al Fresco at Crabtree Valley Mall!

In between Raleigh’s chilly winters and humid summers, there’s this sweet spot where the air is warm and the breeze is cool, making for absolutely perfect weather. Spring is beautiful in our city and we want to spend as much time outside enjoying the season as possible! With that being said, who loves to eat outside as much as we do? There are plenty of places to dine “al fresco” at Crabtree Valley Mall. So, sit back, order your favorites and enjoy patio season!

Brio Tuscan Grille

Dine on a beautiful patio terrace during lunch hour at Brio! While breathing in the fresh air, take advantage of Brio’s new lunch combinations. Choose a soup or salad and half entree for the perfect sized lunch. We suggest their Lobster Bisque with Spaghetti Pesto. Yum!

The Cheesecake Factory

Enjoy one of your favorite restaurants even more by dining on their patio! Sunshine goes perfectly with Avocado Eggrolls, Fish Tacos and our personal favorite… Lemon Meringue Cheesecake! A fresh and tangy ending to a delicious meal.

Crabtree Ale House

Take a big bite out of spring with a juicy burger from Crabtree Ale House! On a warm night, sit on their patio with a Portobello Mozzarella Burger and a cold North Carolina craft beer. They have a beer list to impress so order a few, we won’t tell!

Fleming’s Steakhouse

On a nice evening, join Fleming’s for your special occasion on their patio. We love starting with their Ahi Tuna Poke and then moving along to a delicious steak and seafood dinner that includes a Filet and King Crab Legs. Toast to the evening with champagne under the beautiful night sky!

La Rancherita

What goes great with chips, salsa and a margarita on the rocks? Fresh air and sunshine! Grab your pals for a fiesta on La Rancerita’s patio area for lunch! We suggest trying their Dip Sampler: Guac, Queso and Bean Dip! It is a crowd pleaser and goes perfectly with a cold lime margarita.

Red Monkey Tavern

A sandwich menu as impressive as their patio! We love stopping by Red Monkey Tavern at lunch for a delicious Cuban Sandwich, Tropical Chicken Sandwich or a Chipotle Turkey Club! Soak in the sun while sipping on something cold, and relax knowing you’re being taken care of!

Seasons 52

Escape to a secret garden when dining with Seasons 52! Surrounded by beautiful plants and shaded by umbrellas, you’ll feel instantly relaxed during your lunch break. We suggest doing their lunch combo with a half flatbread to pair with a soup or salad. It’s the perfect amount that does not skimp on the flavor!

Torii Noodle Bar

We love patio season at Torii Noodle Bar! Slurp on your favorite noodles or pick your favorite Bento Box combination for a tasty lunch. No meal is complete at Torii without finishing it off with delicious Mochi Ice Cream! Try their sampler for a little taste of all their ice cream offerings.
