Fun in the sun is coming

Spring is in the air and warmer days are (presumably) ahead. When the temperatures do finally rise, many Chicago restaurants will be ready to unveil their new patio spaces. Start dreaming of al fresco dining and beat the crowds at these upcoming hotspots by checking the list below.

Bar Ramone

Lettuce Entertain You opened its first wine bar last year, offering an expansive collection of bottles and Spanish-heavy small plates. The experience will be paired with a 16-seat patio this spring, where guests can sip on rosé while noshing on pan con tomate, jamon iberico, lamb meatballs, and more.
