The Best Drinking Patios in America

#1 Frontier – Nothing says “summer” like Frontier shedding its protective patio covering, and nothing says “outdoors” quite like feasting on a whole animal — except maybe cutting down a redwood while feasting on said whole animal. Since there are no redwoods in the middle of Chicago, go for the whole alligator or the farm-raised pig at this Noble Square outpost. Or, if you want something more prepared, try the Davy Crockett-approved (surely) turtle bolognese.
