Outdoor dining is permissible under Phase 3 of the "Protecting Chicago" re-opening framework with proper social distancing. Options include patios, rooftops, rooms with retractable roofs, and indoor spaces where 50% or more of a wall can be removed via the opening of windows, doors, or panels. Tables must be at least six feet apart or separated by barriers.
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.
