Top 3 Patios in Chicago
Located in the heart of Wicker Park, this trendy taco restaurant’s patio is one of the most popular locations in Chicago. Bigger than the actual restaurant itself, the patio is dense and lively, defined by giant yellow umbrellas and multitudes of “see and be seen” hipsters. If you don’t want to wait for a spot on the patio, you can order from a window and eat at a series of picnic benches instead. However, the tacos and guacamole are fantastic, so if you want a great lunch with a lively atmosphere, this is a good place to check out.
One of Logan Square’s best restaurants is Lula Café, a casual yet upscale American Restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Their patio is small and polished, giving customers a gorgeous and impressive view of the lively streets of Logan Square. Like Big Star, Lula attracts a very modern crowd, but the restaurant’s food is accessible enough where it isn’t necessary to be a foodie to enjoy the menu. If you want a sunny, vibrant location that’s comfortable enough to relax and great to bring friends, check Lula Café out.
Consistency, quality, and simplicity are the three defining characteristics of Birchwood Kitchen, a restaurant in Bucktown offering soups, salads, and sandwiches. They offer a stunning backyard patio, which is a nice place to spend a few hours talking or daydreaming, secluding you from the noise and stress of the city. By the end of your meal, you will have probably become best friends with the servers, who are all some of the nicest people you will ever meet. The food is always delicious, and the rotating seasonal menu allows you to try new things every time you go.
