PATIO DINING FOR SUMMER EXCITEMENT!
At Hillside and Sol y Nieve

Eating outside is a special pleasure in Chicagoland, because it allows us to enjoy the amazing summers here. Both our locations in downtown Chicago and Hillside offer great patios for eating, drinking, and enjoying our friends. If you want to make the most of the nice weather while we have it, ask our hosts if you can be seated outdoors! Our patios are the place to be this summer, and may feature entertainment and events as well, if you’re lucky.
