Why is it that summer always goes by so quickly?! I can’t believe we are already halfway through July and there are still so many activities I am trying to squeeze in before fall comes, not to mention so many restaurants and patios I want to check out! Below is a list of places to try this summer for the perfect rooftop view, refreshing cocktails and trendy eats.

Aba: Meet Aba, the newest opening from Lettuce Entertain You and sister restaurant to Ema. The space is gorgeously decorated filled with plants, skylights, fire pits and offers a lovely rooftop. Reservations are hard to come by, but if you can get in, it sure is dreamy.
