Did you hear the exciting news? Downtown Alameda restaurants can now open for modified outdoor service. If you’re looking to meet up with a friend in your “social bubble” for dinner and drinks, or enjoy a meal out with the family, check out these favorite downtown spots that are providing outdoor dining with care:

Recently Opened: Spinning Bones has created a new socially-distanced outdoor dining area for small groups to enjoy their take-out food and drinks. Located across the street from their restaurant, The Boneyard offers food, drinks, family, fun, sun,… all in one space. The outdoor space is open Wednesday through Sunday, weather permitting.

Known for its German take on Alameda, Speisekammer provides a rotating menu that might include Schweinebraten, Sauerbraten, or Poached Salmon. Accompany a traditional dish with a light lager and you’ll feel like you’re in another land without traveling far. Speisekammer’s patio is open Tuesday to Sunday. Pickup and delivery is also available.

The outdoor patio at Cinema Grill is open for dining every night. Order a specialty pizza, burger, or daily special. Cinema Grill also continues to offer a Curbside Takeout menu with to-go specials that feed four and happy hour drinks. And don’t forget the popcorn!

Tucked behind Mama Papa Lithuania is a quaint beer garden. Their Stuffed Cabbage, Potato Pancakes, and Cepelinis along with a European beer make for the perfect comfort food. Reservations are highly encouraged and they are only accepting parties of 4 or less for the time being.

Outdoor seating is now available at Ole’s Waffle Shop. Ole’s entire menu is available as well as wine from Wine & Waffles. The best part is it’s dog friendly so you can bring your furry friends and enjoy some great food and sunshine.

“The Gardens at the Tavern” (pictured above) is Downtown Alameda’s newest outdoor oasis. You’ll find the inviting dining area set up in the parking lot next to The Park Street Tavern. Come gift your tastebuds with made-from-scratch Greek & Italian inspired cuisine!

Other favorite spots ready for outdoor dining? American Oak, Angela’s Restaurant, Asena, Hobnob, La Penca Azul, McGee’s, and The Star on Park.
