alfresco dining brings a taste of summer to Lakeview
This is Week Two of Dine Out on Broadway, one of the first of Chicago’s street closures open for outdoor dining, part of Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s “Make Way for Dining” pilot program.
The street will be closed from Belmont to Surf so that the participating restaurants’ sidewalk patios can be extended into the street creating an alfresco extravaganza.
In addition, there will be communal seating areas placed throughout Broadway for those who would like to order carry-out and enjoy it outside.
With most of Chicago’s summer festivals cancelled for 2020 due to the corona virus, Dine Out on Broadway is a fun option.
Wilde, Stella’s, Crisp, The Bagel and Chilean Balam are among the 30 plus restaurants participating. Click here to see the entire list.
Broadway will be closed to traffic and open for dining starting this Friday, June 19th from 12pm-10pm, and Saturday, June 20th, and Sunday, June 21st from 11am-10pm.
All social distancing, face covering, and other reopening guidelines are to be followed and will be enforced.
Open containers and congregating in large groups are not permitted. Attendees should wear face coverings and maintain a social distance when traveling to and from dining establishments.
Street closures and public transportation
The 36 Bus on Broadway will be rerouted (check the CTA website for updates) and Barry, Oakdale, and Briar will become two way streets to accommodate local traffic.
