CHECK OUT THESE GREAT OUTDOOR DINING VENUES
Hot days and nights are perfect for al fresco dining. It’s a great way to reconnect with friends or meet new ones. Here are five of the city’s best outdoor dining spots:
HOMESTEAD ON THE ROOF
(1924 W. Chicago Avenue, (773) 332-2354)
This is the place for fresh-from-the-farm cuisine. The rooftop patio seats 85. Choose summer dishes such as hummus, risotto, seafood paella and gazpacho. Many herbs and vegetables used in the dishes served are grown in the organic rooftop garden. The beverage menu is also impressive.
(101 E. Erie Street, (312) 667-6796)
Enjoy Japanese cuisine in the open-air atop the Conrad Chicago Hotel, just steps from the Magnificent Mile. Try sushi on the rooftop and take in the city’s sights. Top-of-the-line fare such as A5 wagyu beef prepared on hot stones and paired with sake is popular.
(118 W. Grand Avenue, (312) 222-9700)
Chicagoans consider it the leading Peruvian eatery. You’ll want to try the anticuchos and cebiches as well as signature creations such as pollo a la brasa. Tour Peru via its cuisine while relaxing on the rooftop.
THE DUCK INN
(2701 S. Eleanor Street, (312) 724-8811)
What better place for burgers and hot dogs than a backyard patio? Duck and beef sausage combine with scrumptious toppings in the duck fat dog. Burgers feature dijonnaise and Brun-uusto cheese on rye.
(5311 S. Lake Park Ave W, (312) 801-2100)
This Hyde Park spot offers a restaurant, bar and outdoor patio. Dine on goodies such as Kalbi short ribs and Gulf prawns. Sip delectable cocktails outdoors or slip inside to enjoy the music.
