With daylight continuing to appear in more limited supply as winter nears, finding a restaurant that offers good light is more important than ever.

Not only can you enjoy a welcome meal, but can also work on amping up your Vitamin D production. Coco's Bistro offers terrific light throughout the dining room thanks to surrounding windows and several large skylights. It also offers a newly decorated area with new tables chairs and paint to soak up.

A steak salad ($19.50) was a showy display that was admired as soon as it was placed on the table.
