Need a quick escape from the city? Try the patio at Cimiís Bistro, which overlooks the gentle hills of Pinnacle Golf Club in Grove City. The restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner and features a Sunday brunch menu on the outdoor terrace. Itís an elegant and relaxing spot for special eventsóour family dined here on Motherís Day and I was impressed with the expansive brunch menu and the upscale-yet-comfy setting. The American-themed bistro features made-to-order wood-fired pizzas baked in an outdoor oven and a rotating list of daily specials made with local, seasonal ingredients. Reservations are accepted and encouraged for weekend and evening patio dining.
