The CHP 2010 Chicago Al Fresco Outdoor Dining Guide

by Amanda on July 16, 2010

Chicago Outdoor Neighborhood DiningBack by popular demand, we at Chicago Home Partner are pleased to announce our:

4th Annual Chicago Al Fresco Dining Recommendations!

For those of you who might have forgotten previous years or new to our mailing program:

Al Fresco:  From the Italian word al fresco meaning “in the fresh air”.

Dining: From the French word diner meaning “to have dinner”.

Al Fresco Dining: A Chicagoland tradition of eating outside in our glorious summer months.

Summer is officially in full swing here in Chicagoland with the temperatures (and humidity) climbing into the 90’s.  This is the time to get out and enjoy our city so grab a stroller, a leash or both, (for the very brave!), and sit curbside to people-watch or retreat to flowered gardens to enjoy meals with friends.

Whether Northside, Southside, Westside or The Loop, we’ve made sure to include some local spots close at hand.  through diligent research and testing we have compiled our list of 2010 Chicago Al Fresco Dining Recommendations.  There are some new additions, some we just couldn’t take off the list, and some wonderful surprises!

Most of these recommendations have links to their review page complete with directions, menus, etc.
