Dining al fresco
I'm coming to Chicago for Fourth of July with 4 nights of dinners planned - 2 expensive and 2 mid price. I have decided on OneSixtyBlue and Japonais for the expensive ones and Carnivale for one of the mid-price. My boyfriend and I would a great outdoor patio recommendation. Mid-priced (as in $15-$25 an entree), nice atmosphere (perhaps romantic), and good people watching is always a plus. Types of cuisine preferred for the al fresco patio - french bistro, italian (but not large portioned pastas), New American, or Asian.
