The recently opened Frelard restaurant is wasting almost no time on the patio front. With warmer weather comes dining alfresco, and at Tarsan i Jane it’s with classic Valencian and Basque cocktails in hand.

Imbibe on small-batch cocktails such as aigua de Valencia, which is made with orange juice, Cava, vodka, Cointreau, and gin. Hello, day buzz. Or perhaps a beer cocktail is more your speed: think Spanish lager mixed with a fizzy, citrus Fanta.

The patio serves as a distinctly casual area in contrast to the more refined fare inside. This is where chef Perfecte Rocher can start up the open-air, wood-fired grill and char his housemade sausages. There’s a pork sausage made with fava bean, brandy, and herbs, a blood sausage with chickpeas, and a red, chorizo-esque sausage as well.

The patio is open from Thursday through Saturday, from 5 to 10 for dinner, and on Sundays from 11 to 3, serving afternoon paella. And sorry, squatter's rights rule as no reservations are accepted for this sun-filled area.

This story was edited on June 9 to reflect that the patio is also open on Sundays for paella.
