Bone Garden Cantina has one of the largest patios in West Midtown and as soon as spring hits, this place is always packed. Besides the outdoor seating though, this Day of the Dead-themed restaurant serves some of the best Mexican food in the city, along with specialty margaritas and agave cocktails that help stave off the heat once it gets hot enough that you debate going outside before the sun sets. There’s always a wait, but just use the extra time to look over the huge menu (make sure to try the braised goat tacos) and grab a drink.
