Avli on The Park
There are three other Avlis, but the Lakeshore East location has a rooftop patio overlooking the park. The outdoor space has heated cabanas and firepits, and is low-key enough to easily hear everyone’s complaints about how cold Chicago is. Plus, it has a slightly different menu than the others, with dishes like astakomakaronada (a lobster pasta in a great ouzo-tomato sauce) and chicken souvlaki—tender chicken breast skewers on top of a bed of fries topped with feta and yogurt sauce.
