A glass of wine and a patio - Katharine Shilcutt may have inspired the whole city to skip the gym today with her post "Houston's Best Patios: The 10 Best to Drink a Glass of Wine." Of course, everyone has their spots, and commenter Jennilangusto wrote in to vote for Dolce Vita:
Dolce Vita for me. Evening, before the crowd arrives or late late lunch. Honey-suckle combines with diesel fumes for an urban pastoral that's pitch perfect. Not to mention, they have a great all-Italian wine list.
Somehow, that comment captures the place perfectly. Well done.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
