NEW FOR SPRING 2021: al Fresco off Main

The City of Mesa and the Downtown Mesa Association have introduced a great way to "extend" patio dining for all of the restaurants in the downtown Mesa area. Al Fresco off Main, using a half block of MacDonald north of Main, offers plenty of outdoor, distanced seating where people can bring food they ordered from any downtown Mesa restaurant to enjoy their meal in the middle of downtown! The fine-weather dining option continues through April.
