To keep tabs on every Chicago restaurant and bar opening is folly. But to keep tabs on the most worthy? Yeoman’s work, and we’re proud to do it. Thus we present Table Stakes, a monthly rundown of the five (or so) must-know spots that have swung wide their doors in the past thirty (or so). Bon appétit.
Number one priority in June: eat outside.
But then the Blackhawks did their biennial destroy-everyone routine and kept us indoors a few weeks longer than expected (or exactly as expected).
Let’s make up for lost time, shall we?
And so: the only five openings you need to concern yourself with this month. All of them featuring some good ol’ fresh air.
- The largest terrace bar and restaurant in Chicago
- A new wine bar in Ravenswood with a bit of a sweet tooth
- Downtown's newest rooftop perch, and the stunning views therein
All with either patios or open-air windows so you can enjoy some sun.
Plus: a new healthy, on-demand delivery service by way of San Francisco.
Dine on and drink well, fellas.
And lose the playoff beards.
