Almost every neighborhood in Chicago is home to a variety of amazing and luxurious condos. If you are undecided as to which neighborhood to purchase Chicago real estate in, you should consider the spring and summer entertainment options as a potential deciding factor. After all, a huge benefit to living in this amazing city is all the options available to you.
One of the best parts of summer in Chicago is enjoying drinks or a meal al fresco. Of course, spending time on your Chicago condo balcony is ideal, but sometimes you just want to get out of the house (even if your home is a fantastic Chicago luxury property). Therefore, here is a first and exclusive look at some of the new restaurants and lounges that will be opening this summer in neighborhoods on Chicago’s North and West sides – if you are not certain which area you’d like to live in, perhaps these will influence your choice.
Fontana Grill is an Italian restaurant located in the Uptown neighborhood and it bound to become a local favorite. This restaurant is currently developing a huge outdoor oasis inspired by a famous fountain in Sarajevo called Sebilj. This outdoor patio is designed to make you feel like you’ve been transported to Europe without leaving Chicago. Fontana Grill will be open in May.
Also in the North Side and opening the end of May is Palette Bistro – a cozy, romantic establishment offering a menu with international touches and focused meat and seafood dishes. This is sure to a popular date spot.
Now let’s head over to the West side (Bucktown to be exact) to enjoy a little Greek flair. Taxim is opening in mid April, and owner David Schneider composed the menu based on his travels and his own heritage. This restaurant has plenty of outside seating including a rooftop deck and don’t forget to pick up some delicious Greek pastries from the inhouse bakery.
Last but not least, recently opened Birchwood Kitchen in Wicker Park features unique sandwiches in an upscale rustic setting. Stop by Wednesday nights when they fire up the BBQ for burger night on their private deck in the back.
