Summer is drawing to a close, which means there’s never been a better time to check out the most noteworthy patios and rooftops of the season. Thankfully, in addition to the reliable standbys, the city has welcomed a handful of outdoor newcomers this year, leaving locals and visitors alike with no shortage of alfresco options. From a sprawling patio in Pilsen to the nation’s largest rooftop bar, here are eight of the best to book it to, stat.

Pizzeria Portofino

The Italian Riviera served as inspiration for this riverfront restaurant, which specializes in from-scratch pizzas made with quality ingredients from around the world. Pies may be comprised of stone-ground Midwestern grains, but the team searches far and wide for the right toppings (think imported bufala fior di latte or Puglia-sourced artichokes). For the ultimate summer experience, arrive via vessel—here, boat docking and alfresco tables aplenty await. 317 N. Clark St., 312.900.9018
