I don’t know if this qualifies as bad outdoor seating, but it’s definitely weird outdoor seating.
They avoided the “bad” trait of putting the chairs over the cellar doors, but in doing so, they moved the entire configuration toward the middle of the sidewalk. I would feel too far from the restaurant.
I’m thinking of taking a chair out, and some food, and eating it in the middle of the sidewalk (the food, that is). I would have to make sure it was on a sidewalk that sloped toward the curb!
