In addition to curbside pick-up and delivery, al fresco and indoor dining are permitted in Phase 4 of the "Protecting Chicago" re-opening framework with proper social distancing. Customers do not need to wear masks while seated, but table size is limited to six guests. Outdoor options include patios, rooftops, rooms with retractable roofs, and spaces where 50% or more of a wall can be removed via the opening of windows, doors, or panels.
Rest assured that restaurants around The Magnificent Mile and across Chicago are implementing enhanced safety measures and staff training. Customers are encouraged to make reservations ahead of time and remain outdoors while waiting to be seated.
