Maybe we do the kitchen sink facing the garden like this so that the kitchen island can too, with French doors on the sides, and on the other side of the kitchen sink we get the bar area I want? Negatives: I like the idea of a wall of French doors, uninterrupted, and there would have to be a few feet of deck outside the doors rather than steps down.
