Friday Lunch at Martinique Bistro

voted top al fresco dining for a reason
My sister came home for a weekend visit, so we did what we do best- act like ladies who lunch. I have a hard time getting the lady part right, but there’s nothing I enjoy better than al fresco dining in the spring time. Martinique Bistro always proves to be the perfect spot. If you like Caribbean inspired French food, then you’ll love this place, tucked away on Magazine Street in between Nashville Avenue and State Street. It’s consistently voted as best courtyard and most romantic dining, and once you step inside it’s easy to see why.  The courtyard is lush, and the bubbling fountain softens the noise from the street. I couldn’t think of a better place to spend a  Friday afternoon.
