Restaurants in Chicago with alfresco dining right now

0

After being closed to customers for months, restaurants in Chicago are finally allowed to reopen outdoor seating, including patios, rooftops and indoor spaces with retractable roofs and floor-to-ceiling windows.

In some ways, it almost feels like a typical Chicago summer, almost. Of course, it’s not business as usual for restaurateurs, who are struggling with commissioned by the city safety guidelines, including spacing tables 6 feet apart, limiting capacity and equipping their staff with personal protective equipment. In many cases, customers are being asked to reserve tables in advance, limit their stay and wear a cloth face covering when not dining.

We’ve compiled a drop-down list of Chicago restaurants currently open. This is by no means exhaustive, but we will add to it as we confirm the details of the reopening. If you choose to dine at the restaurant, be sure to call ahead or check the restaurant’s website or social accounts. You may need a reservation or they may take the day off to regroup.

Don’t leave the house without your mask (you’ll need it when you’re not seated at your table) and be sure to maintain social distancing when you can. Above all, be patient with the staff (this is new to them too) and tip generously.
