Chicago, like many places around the world, has a growing-ever-longer summer in which to enjoy its multi-faceted outdoor and patio dining scene. The existing available choices are a feast for the sun- and fresh-air lovers among us. But hey, you can never have too many choices, right? So when it comes to trying new menus and sitting out on new charming patios, Chicago is always offering us more. Here are a couple opening soon.

Sheffield Ave and Diversey Pkwy, the restaurant opens this summer and will offer an expansive sidewalk patio with seating for about 20 to 25 guests. Evette’s All Day melds the Mediterranean flavors of Lebanon with Mexico’s rich culinary traditions while staying true to Chef Mitchell Jamra’s Midwestern roots. Breakfast is served everyday until 2 p.m. and includes items like tacos, a variety of hash dishes and chilaquiles with a pita or tortilla option. Open T – Su 10am until 9pm.
