Sometimes dinner begins with a hard-earned reservation. Or a drive across town to a specific address plugged into your GPS. Or a 90-minute wait in a crowded reception area waiting to hear your name over a loudspeaker.But sometimes dinner begins with a stroll. Your destination isn’t the specific restaurant, but rather a neighborhood filled with options.In recent years, many of the metro area’s town squares, thoroughfares, shopping malls and planned communities have developed into full-on dining neighborhoods. Drinks, dinner and dessert don’t all have to be in the same place. Discoveries abound, waiting to be made.In this Fall 2013 Dining Guide, let us explore the best neighborhoods out there.
