We definitely weren’t expecting to find one of our favorite new patios hanging out on a side street in Bucktown. But that’s where you’ll find Leavitt Tavern, a bar and inn (they have three rooms) that opened last year and just started serving food - specifically a smashburger that’s very good. Despite the fact that it’s pretty close to the Dan Ryan, the outdoor space is incredibly peaceful. There’s no foot or street traffic, and the patio is huge with two sections - one that’s tented and heated, and one that’s on the grass and feels like hanging out in the park.
