UPDATE: Now that chilly weather is upon us, new Restaurant Dining Rules have been established. Choose Chicago has put together an impressive list highlighting the creative ways our favorite neighborhoods and restaurants are approaching fall and winter dining in a very ‘cool’ style!

As the summer outdoor dining options are coming to a close, we wanted to put together a list of fantastic ways to still enjoy the delicious eats of the city during COVID well into Fall and beyond. Many restaurants have thoughtfully crafted carry out menus offering amazing dishes at an incredible value.

What is your favorite? If we missed it, share it! And we will get it added to the list!
