Can you technically even have summer in Chicago without drinking rosé? Frankly, we don’t know, and we don’t want to find out. That’s why we put together this map. It has all the best places in Chicago where you can get rosé from Wines Of Provence - regardless of what time of year it is. Because let’s face it, rosé is fantastic no matter what.
All restaurants featured on The Infatuation are selected by our editorial team. The Chicago Provence Rosé Map is presented by Wines of Provence, and includes places where you can find Iconic Provence rosés from across the region. Wines of Provence, known in France as the Conseil Interprofessionnel des Vins de Provence (CIVP), is an organization representing about 650 wineries and trade companies from the Provence region.
Summer House in Lincoln Park has summery dishes you think your friend from Santa Monica is eating right now - like avocado toast, grain bowls, and fish tacos. And guess what? They probably are.
This French restaurant in Lincoln Square has a beautiful courtyard with lots of twinkly lights and fantastic food.
Mon Ami is another French restaurant with very good food. Come here for brunch, then go for a walk around Lincoln Park.
Our favorite way to do Joe’s in the West Loop is by having multiple glasses of wine, some Italian-inspired snacks (like their ricotta with honey), and catching up with a friend.
Cochon Volant is underneath a Hyatt hotel in the Loop. This spot is designed to feel like a French brasserie, with vintage-looking marble tables, a bakery counter, and a menu full of tasty French food and wine.
This is the second location of Beatnik, and as the name suggests, it is indeed on the river. There’s outdoor seating, and like its sister restaurant in West Town, it’s decorated with plants that have a tropical feel. It also serves the same style of Mediterranean food.
Ask your aunt who lives in Oklahoma and your college roommate from New York if they’ve heard of Girl & The Goat, and they’ll probably say yes. And it’s famous for a good reason - this West Loop restaurant is great.
Le Bar Sofitel Chicago
If you want a low-key spot to hang out over snacks and some wine in the Gold Coast, Le Bar has you covered.
The food at Quartino in River North is reliably good, and the large patio has a (seemingly) endless supply of tables. Plus, the Italian small plates menu makes it easy to keep adding to your order in case you decide to get another bottle of wine.
Tavern On Rush is a steakhouse in the Gold Coast. Upscale but still somewhat casual, you can always count on this spot to have tables outside as soon as the weather turns nice.
Our favorite things at Sunda are their sushi rolls (like the Red Dragon or Tale Of Two Tunas) and specialty nigiri - like the escolar topped with a truffled potato chip.
We really appreciate hanging out on the relaxed rooftop at Bernie’s Lunch & Supper. The tables here are far enough apart to make it feel extra spacious, and they just expanded their awning so you can hang out here even if it rains.
When you imagine a quaint French restaurant, you probably think of something that looks a lot like Le Bouchon. It’s small and perfect for catching up with friends over cassoulet or bouillabaisse. In other words, Le Bouchon is the Paris of Wicker Park.
The Press Room is a wine bar in a quiet area of the West Loop. They have a great selection of wines, really good cocktails, and a short small plates menu. Come here to unwind after work, or for a low-key date night on the patio.
