Dine Out West Lakeview


Dine Out West Lakeview reclaims side streets along the Southport Corridor and Lincoln Avenue to create outdoor dining experiences, similar to a food hall. The Lakeview Chamber of Commerce will launch two side street locations this weekend, one at Cornelia & Southport and another at Wellington & Lincoln. The program allows diners to enjoy food and alcoholic beverages from local restaurants in open air settings, while providing restaurants with much-needed space to expand their outdoor capacity. Diners will be able to order meals for carryout from individual restaurants and take them to a nearby Dine Out location to enjoy al fresco dining and drink service.
