On a recent dinner night out at this hip restaurant Sava’s in Ann Arbor, my friend John actually made this interesting observation that dining outdoor on a no-way-out (deadend) alley could be nicer than eating right on the main street. In the case of Sava’s, it is totally true. It is free of foot-and-bicycle traffic and car’s exhaust on the alley.
Yes, dining right on the main street can seem more romantic and movie-like, but homeless people may ask you for money and students may throw trash on the street. This alley, with the vine growing on one side and with planters growing herb on the other side, seems to me a much better place to eat out with friends on a summer night.
