Phil Stefani Restaurants Offer Some of Chicago’s Best Outdoor Dining

Posted on May 23rd, 2016

Chicago outdoor dining

One of the very best parts of summer in Chicago, is the wealth of outdoor dining options. It seems like just about every block offers establishments with sidewalk or patio seating to enjoy the weather while dining out.

At Phil Stefani Restaurant Group, we are proud to offer some of Chicago’s best outdoor dining spots. Whether it’s the city skyline, Lake Michigan views, or a quiet park like setting, our outdoor dining spaces are a perfect spot to enjoy a warm breeze and soak up some sun while enjoying a cold beverage and a delicious meal.

So, if you love taking advantage of a warm sunny day in Chicago, discover all of Phil Stefani’s outdoor dining locations this summer:

Tavern on Rush

Voted “Best Outdoor Dining” by Chicago Scene Magazine, Tavern’s outdoor patio cafe is “the” for al fresco dining in downtown Chicago. The spacious patio, which is equipped with flatscreen HD televisions, is perfect for catching a few rays on a sunny afternoon over your lunch hour or for dining with friends on a beautiful summer evening. Due to the popularity of the Tavern on Rush outdoor patio, we don’t accept reservations for the patio and all tables are reserved for full lunch/dinner service only.

Riva Cafe at Riva Crab House at Navy Pier

The Riva Cafe  at Navy Pier offers some of Chicago’s best outdoor dining. Just steps away from the water, The Riva Cafe patio offers one-of-a-kind views of Lake Michigan and Chicago’s skyline. It’s not just the menu that makes Riva Cafe a bit different from its more formal upstairs sibling, Riva Crab House. It’s more than the relaxed dress code and hang-out-all-day mentality; it’s the attitude. We bring fine dining to Navy Pier at Riva Crab House daily, and we’re proud of it–we also like hanging with friends and customers alike and our personal side comes through best at Riva Cafe.
