Big Star Ready To Unveil Patio Seating

By Chuck Sudo in Food on Mar 22, 2010 9:00PM


How many of you enjoyed patio seating during that brief warmup last week? The artist's rendering above is what Big Star's patio will look like, minus the mob.

The outdoor seating is split into two sections — one in front of the garage door, the other in front of the takeout window — with a capacity to seat 123. Weather permitting, Big Star's patio is scheduled to open March 30. And the weather may not cooperate; Accuweather's forecast for that day is partly sunny with a high of 44 degrees. We've grilled in shorts in colder weather.
