It's that time of year: lunch on the deck

Crispy chicken sandwich and fries at Hot Rods in New London.

I've eaten outside a lot this summer. From my own deck, to Capt. Scott's in New London and Skipper's Dock in Stonington and a couple of nice spots on Lake Winnipesaukee while on vacation.

Today is a perfect day to eat outside -- blue skies, mid-70s, gentle breeze. So we headed for Hot Rod Cafe, which has one of the best decks on Bank Street. I ordered the crispy chicken wrap, picking honey barbecue as my sauce. My lunch companion had a grilled cajun chicken sandwich.

We even got lucky when a sub motored up the Thames.

What's your favorite place to eat outside this time of year?

The stuffies (with chorizo) were outstanding at Skipper's Dock in Stonington.
