Maija Diethelm-Floyd is a dog lover — so much so that she opened the patio of her European-style bistro and wine bar to her customers' canine companions. The petite, candlelit porch features hooks for tethering leashes, and her friendly staff is more than happy to bring out a generously sized bowl of water — with ice, even — on hot summer nights. Strangers bond over their pooches, and Diethelm-Floyd is known to emerge from behind the bar for a cuddle with the furry friends. Yeah, dogs don't tip, but a wagging tail is all the thanks this restaurateur requires.
